PhotoScape is great free photo editing software that can resize pictures, make photo mosaics, slides, change image backgrounds and perform other advanced image manipulations like pictures overlaying. But PhotoScape editor has one small peculiarity. Every time you save an edited picture, PhotoScape creates an additional folder called “Originals” where it puts the original not-edited image copy (see on the screenshot above).

Panorama photos are one of the latest trends in digital photography. Panoramic photos are good for displaying landscapes, sightseeing, monuments, and object covering vast area. But they are rare in our home photo collections.
Usually after vacations we bring several separate photos of one place or building. We explain to our friends that we couldn’t shoot it as one pic and ask them to believe that it looks gorgeous as a united monument unit. But there is one free program that can save your friends’ imagination - IrfanView. It creates one panorama photo out of a few split pictures.
Everyone who works with piles of digital images, scanned faxes, PDF-documents, Photoshop files, and other stuff of that kind is familiar with standard Microsoft Document Viewer. Say it frankly, is it enough? If yes, skip this post, if no, go on reading.
I’ll ask the question and I’ll answer it myself basing on my personal experience. What a good viewer program should possess so that its users would run about and enthusiastically tell everybody how good it is?
Tick off points on your fingers. The perfect viewer has to:
- support a manifold of formats as there are plenty of exotic ones specific for various parts of the world;
- have a user-friendly interface (someone can object that it applies to all programs but I meant a big clear space left for image viewing);
- have a tool set to process files;
- be sold at a reasonable price and ideally be free of charge;
- offer some small but pleasant features as a compliment;
- have a multilingual support.
