With Irfanview, you can easily create many special effects for your photos. You can read my descriptions below or view the video.
All you need to do is go to Irfanview horizontal menu, click
File > Open
to load the photo into Irfanview, then
Image > Effects
and you will see list of special effects you can create with Irfanview:
You either click your choice of effect to immediately add the effects to the photo. However, a better choice is to use the Effects Browsers
Image > Effects > Effects browsers....
which not only enables you to first browse (try out) the effects on the photo and view the original photo and the altered photo side by side for comparison, but it will offer additional effects like
Blur 2 (total variation method)
Red Eye Reduction
Green Eye Reduction
Yellow Eye Reduction
Chromatic Aberration Correction
Below is the screen shot of EFFECTS BROWSER:
If not happy, just UNDO. When satisfied, save. View the video below for demonstration:
