FreeVimager Portable
A free, surprisingly powerful image viewer

FreeVimager is an open source image viewer which offers far more functionality than you'd expect from this kind of tool.

There's all the basics, of course. The program can associate itself with common image formats, so you can view them with a quick double-click from Explorer. Or you can open a folder of pictures, then browse them in a customisable slideshow. And there are plenty of editing options: rotate, resize, crop, sharpen and soften effects, a red-eye remover, brightness/ contrast/ colour tweaks, and more.

But many of these functions go further than we expected. FreeVimager doesn't just display your images in slideshows, for instance: it can burn them to CD or DVD. The program keeps metadata (EXIF, IPTC, XMP, ICC) during its edits. Many editing options are surprisingly configurable for an image viewer (the Resize option offers 5 resizing methods, for example), and there are some tools which you won't even find in many commercial editors (lossless JPEG cropping, or the ability to add, update or remove an EXIF thumbnail).

And there are more than enough bonus features to justify downloading the program, all on their own. Like its ability to save images as PDF files. The scanning tools (scan multiple pages to a PDF or TIFF file and email them, for instance). And a particularly powerful batch processing dialog can take a folder of images and convert or rename them to suit your needs.

The program is also a little basic in some areas. Image format support is essentials only (bmp, emf, gif, jpg, pcx, png, tiff), and there's no thumbnail browser.

On balance, then, FreeVimager is an excellent image viewer, powerful, portable and with something to offer just about everyone. Go grab a copy right now.

Note this is the portable version of FreeVimager.

Verdict:

Its file format support is limited, but otherwise FreeVimager is an excellent image editor, easy to use and packed with powerful features.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
