Open, view, edit

Imagine Picture Viewer is a program that you can use to view and edit images

Imagine is a program that works with all sorts of image files. These include PNG, BMP, JPG, and GIF formats. It’s a lightweight picture viewer. This means it won’t use up too many resources while you’re using it, be it for editing or just observing.

The editing function is surprisingly advanced and effective. It comes with the standard tools, like resizing, cropping, and adjusting brightness. It expands on these with options like a sepia shade and an oil painting filter. It’s easy to understand why this program outperforms the default windows viewer, Windows Photo Viewer.

Opening certain files with Imagine can be a little painful. Most of the time, there’s no major difference when it comes to viewing images. However, when you hit the edit button, things start to get hectic. The limited undo function means you can only give your latest change a retry. Also, modifying larger pictures can cause a highly noticeable drag in performance. Some computers might be able to handle this, but other rigs are very prone to slowing down. Sometimes these situations can cause crashes, rendering the entire edit function useless.

Something else of note, is the ability to share pictures. This feature makes Imagine stand out. It works with Flickr, Picasa, Twitpic, and ImageShack, so once you’re done editing your pictures, you can share them with the world.

Where can you run this program?

Imagine Picture Reviewer runs on Windows Vista and later.

Is there a better alternative?

No. The default option is Windows Photo Viewer, and it’s very lacking when compared to Imagine.
