Create special effects with Irfanview


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:

3D Button
Blur
Emboss
Oil Paint
Edge Detection
Median Filter
Explosion
Pixelize
Sepia
Rain Drops

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)
Sharpen
Unsharp mask
Red Eye Reduction
Green Eye Reduction
Yellow Eye Reduction
Solarize
Fragment
Twirl
Swirl
Chromatic Aberration Correction
Radial Blur
Zoom Blur
Rock
Relief

Below is the screen shot of EFFECTS BROWSER:
