Great Program for viewing & editing pics, movies, etc.
In case anybody is wondering, I have been posting all these great pics using a program called Irfanview, which can be found at http://www.irfanview.com/. This is a freeware program that lets you view almost any kind of picture, movie, or sound file regardless of what program it was created in or to what it was suposed to be displayed in. It's also great for viewing multiple pics or movies with it's slide show option, and it even has some basic editing tools. In order to get these pics in my blog, I used Irfanview to first change their size to 640x480, and then used the batch converter to convert them from bitmaps to jpegs. For those of you who don't know what this means, the program let me make the pictures much smaller and therefore sharper, and to translate them into a file type that the internet understands. Even if you don't need to do any image manipulation, it is a great little program for viewing almost anything. Check it out!
