ACDSee Free 1.1.21
A clean, simple and speedy image viewer

ACDSee Free is a fast, easy-to-use image viewer.

The program can view all the main image file formats (BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, TGA, TIFF, WBMP, PCX, PIC, WMF, EMF). In a click or two you can associate it with those file types so it displays them if you double-click a file in Explorer, or you can just click File > Open within the program to view a file directly.

ACDSee Free provides all the usual image viewing options: there are lots of zoom controls, you can rotate an image, set it as your wallpaper, delete it, perhaps save the file as another format (BMP, GIF, JPEG, PCX, PNG, TGA, TIFF and WBMP exports are supported).

And printing is particularly strong. You can print an image to a standard size (4"x6", 5"x7", 10"x8", whatever you like); there's a choice of filters available if resampling is necessary; you can tweak image gamma, add header and footer text, control the image position, rotation, aspect ratio and more.

ACDSee Free is still a relatively basic viewer. It doesn't provide thumbnail browsing, for instance, and there are plenty of tools around which support many more file formats.

The program is fast, configurable and easy to use, though, and if your image viewing requirements are straightforward then this could be a very good choice.


ACDSee Free isn't overloaded with features, but it carries out the image viewing basics very well, being fast, reliable and easy to use.

I think ACDSee full version is pretty good for what it is, but when you look at all the features of IRFAN View... not only can you view images of many types, but you can do quite a few special effects to images, install the extras and it becomes quite powerful Image Editing and for Viewing images and there is more... batch editing and other things that I am sure I missed, and to top it all off it's FREE.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
