This is my complimentary app to the well known big-one. I'm having trouble renaming a file (F2) it takes 5 seconds to rename it, I had to go back to version 5.3 where it's all fast and normal, no idea if this a bug or a Win 10 thing or something else.

zorro on 2018-02-18 06:05

@xor: must be related to your system. I'm using the newest version on Win 8.1 x64 and just tested all renaming methods - no problems, no delay. All other functions work as well fast and flawless.

A keeper. Very lightweight with many useful features.

webfork on 2016-05-03 21:30

Although it's an image uploader with a lot of capability, I was actually most impressed by the included screen capture system. The super easy annotation and batch uploads may completely change how I do screen captures.

What a bad news! Where did you get these rumours from? I hope the rumours are not true.

Attention! Version 4.50 changes the ini-file to unicode (UTF16 LE) - as a side-effect the dropdown-zoombox in the menu (if activated) doesn't show up the percentage-steps any more, only %%. You can still type in the desired percentage and press enter, but the predefined steps don't work. This sure will be corrected, but if someone can't live with that: stay with V4.44 until next version.

zorro on 2018-02-28 06:26

As mentioned above the problems with unicode were solved. Zip now contains a text file with following advise:

>> Please start IrfanView and call (once) any of the dialogs:
- Properties (P), or
- File->Open (O), or
- File->Save As (S), or
- Batch (B)
to convert/set IrfanView INI file to UNICODE mode !

If the INI file is not converted to Unicode, some of the options (like filenames, paths or text options)
may NOT be saved properly and the feature may not be working as expected.

The graphics editor I use most often just to tweak and modify photos and images, especially for desktop backgrounds. Outside of that I've enhanced more than a few presentations by making color edits that PowerPoint's inexact image tools couldn't do. I love this program.

@__philippe: It's so far really, really great. I'm tempted to bump up the current version to the beta just because it's such a leap in available features and (so far) quite stable.

quote @tc: You can stop the intro photo by editing photoscape.cfg, and turning intro.photoOn from on to off. You could also edit the url, to point to a local image

I installed on USB with 7zip.
In addition to tc's message: if you make photoscape.cfg read-only, it will keep it's settings in the cfg file.

I also deleted the plugins dir (unwanted toolbar in there), and renamed the file PSMsgHook.dll in the main folder to PSMsgHook.dllold.

Although I've moved over to freeware options for most things I do, I've maintained use of Microsoft Photo Manager for years when working on my own photo collection. Today however, I was on a machine without it so I got PhotoScape up and found I actually prefer it.

webfork on 2015-02-26 23:23

Every few months I discover something new and cool with this program.  Animated GIF tricks, photo edit functions, framing tricks, and photo collages. Today it was dragging and dropping an image onto the program icon and seeing the wealth of edition, annotation, and symbol tools available.
