Photo viewers and Windows 10

To add to the previous post about an “alternative” photo viewer for Windows 10, TCAT Shelbyville’s – Technical Blog has come up with another one (called IrfanView) — that is totally FREE, is a seasoned piece of software, and can be installed as a portable app. If you are a computer tech, IrfanView is a “must have” piece of software that actually can be used for forensic purposes (such as extracting the EXIF data from a picture and using IrfanView’s GPS feature with Google Earth and Google Maps to locate the origin of the picture). You can learn more about this by reading the article at TCAT Shelbyville’s – Technical Blog
