well

well for one thing XNView is much like reshack and does some of the stuff reshack does but Irfranview I believe is just an image viewer (someone correct me if I am wrong about irfranview)

XnView is a more advanced

XnView is a more advanced product than Irfanview. I use it all the time and love it - as a teacher i use alot of jpg/gif/pdf. Particularly useful for me is its batch conversion and tabs - i do alot of scanning and then GIF to PDF conversion. This is a plugin along with Ghostscript and is well worth using instead of a pdf writer. Although for longer docs i use primoPDF which is excellent. Both outstanding free apps.

Outside of work i like it for digital photo viewing and resizing. I would revert to to PhotoImpact for serious editing as XnView is not for that.

Irfanview was nothing like as sophisticated and as far as i can remember from trying it - just an image viewer.

Hope this helps.

inframview is not just an image viewer

infranview is just an image viewer if thats all you have but if you download the plug-in pack then it becomes a great program as it can play all video, picture and audio files

i dont have any ideas for a sig yet

comparing xnview and irfanview

xnview works well to view all images within a folder structure. I especially like that I can scan and find all images ahead of time. I can then set them to a slide show setting. It's nice.

I like irfan view for looking at the individual images because it is a versatile and simple utility. It works well. I can open images of any size and adjust for the size of my screen too.

IrfanView

I've been a long time user of Irfanview and I love it. It's lightning fast, does all the simple image manipulations I need to do (and some not so simple ones too), and I never have to wait.

I've tried a couple of times use XNView but I end up tripping over the interface, I prefer the more minimalistic approach of IrfanView, as I only tend to work with one image a time. To my mind XNView is a glorified thumbnail viewer and I already have that capability in FreeCommander.

I suppose it comes down to what you're using it for, but I personally prefer IrfanView.
