XnSoft XnViewMP is an image viewing application that allows users to open, edit, and convert images saved in over 500 different formats. It is free for private and educational use, making it a great choice for viewing and converting images saved in formats that other image viewers cannot open.

Besides its ability to open most images, XnViewMP's other selling points are its simple, Windows Explorer-esque browsing interface and extensive image cataloging features. Users can catalog their images by subject (Family, Pets, Portraits, Travel, etc.), quality (Excellent, Good, etc.), priority, and their own user-created criteria. Then, they can quickly filter and view images by category.

While XnViewMP is not the most comprehensive image editing program, it provides basic editing features that are suitable for those who want to make simple adjustments to their photos and images. Users can crop images, adjust contrast and color balance, and add filters and visual effects in XnViewMP. The program also allows users to view images in a variety of sizes, including thumbnail, fullscreen, and film strip viewing modes, compare images, and create simple slideshows.

Those looking to convert images to other formats will find that XnViewMP is able to save images in over 70 file formats, including most common formats and some obscure ones. Users who need to convert a large number of images can use XnViewMP's batch conversion tool to speed through the conversion process.


If you need an image viewing application that supports obscure image formats, allows you to comprehensively catalog your images, and provides simple editing and conversion tools, XnViewMP might be the app for you. For the price, XnViewMP overperforms, making it a must-have for those who are obsessed with images but don't want to pay for an image viewing, editing, and conversion application.
