Let’s say you want a nice, efficient picture viewing software. You don’t want it to be a full-fledged image editor, but you do want it to support every image format you can possibly come across, you want it to have a nice, user friendly design, and you want it to support essential image editing function such as cropping, converting into different image file formats, image resizing, and image rotation. And, of course, you want it to be 100% free.
If so then ForceVision is the viewer for you; an elegant, one-click image viewing solution that is small yet powerful. Not only can it do all of the above (the batch image file format conversion function is particularly slick), it can also perform image scans (through a scanner). Forcevision also features some (30 or so) filtering options such as red eye correction, sharpening/blurring, etc.
I like this program and highly recommend it. I even grew to like the explorer-style navigation window on the left side of the screen. I had never used any of the filtering options before writing this review, as there are more powerful free software out there that do this sort of thing, so they were a (rather pleasant) surprise for such a small program.
A free alternative to: ACDSee, Firegraphic, etc.
Version tested: 3.35.1
