      Graphic Applications


        This program only runs on Windows.
        This is the website for one of the most useful graphic viewing/editing/conversion tools that I know of.
        Using plugins it has view/play support for most major graphic file formats as well as many audio & video formats.
        Conversion is only supported for conversion to certain graphic formats.
        A useful graphic editor is also included.

                    It is easy to use and provides a very consistent interface for all the file formats it supports.

                        Secunia PSI

                          This program only runs on Windows.
                          This program functions like Windows Update for many non-Microsoft applications.
                          It is fairly easy to use and the free version for individuals is highly recommended.
                          I use it to keep my own PCs software up to date.
