I notice in 4.67 that the OCR plugin is updated. It suggests using the Tesseract OCR, which I suspect is not portable. When I test it I will be looking to see if it can be made portable, and if it works with 32-bit Irfanview (there are a number of limitations with the 64-bit Irfanview so I am staying there).

Also note that virtually every new release updates some plugins, and version 4.65 is no exception. Most users may want to go to and download the 32- or 64-bit package, and dump them into the Irfanview Plugins subdirectory.

@Cornflower: Seems like the 32-bit ZIP is also available now. I have updated both download links.

Just to note that the direct download links point to version 4.60. The home website ( has the link to version 4.62 Irfanview and the plugins. Note that there is no 32-bit Irfanview in zip format, but I verified that uniextract works.

Note: New features in this version, especially if you use the Irfanview PlugIn

The PDF Plugin is great! So far, I have converted PDFs to images, and vice-versa, stiched together and split PDFs (one colleague had a poster-sized image composed of 14 pages), and more. It can also do thumbnails.

Using only Irfanview with the PDF Plugin, for example, I went to, used Irfanview's fixed screen rectangle capture to 'scan' and old book direct to PDF, and clean up the yellowed pages.

While PDF-XChange Editor is still the better product for annotation, OCR, etc., I recommend looking at Irfanview for PDF.

Great Viewer.
Open and converts between most graphic formats, has some (simple, but useful) editing features, and now, even outputs (thru plugin) to PDF. Do note that joining several Bitmaps (each in a one-page PDFs) can easily be done with PDFTK Builder (also in this site). This is not minor. If one wants portability one can not rely on having PDF printer (non-portable) installed everywhere!

Many plugins were also updated in this version, so IrfanView recommends updating them if you update IrfanView itself.

"Several PlugIns are changed/updated, please install the newest versions:"

IrfanView's developer Irfan Skiljan kindly suggested a workaround for the broken webP.dll Plugin under Win XP :

IrfanView 4.54
+ webP.dll 4.51 Plugin (Link date 20/02/2018; Size 204,288 bytes)
+ Win XP
= eternal bliss...;-)

Some recent plugins for IrfanView 4.54-32bit no longer work under XP,
specifically WebP.dll 4.54-32bit...:-(

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.
