just a tiny info for users of IrfanView:

IrfanView is now offering a "third" and seperate plugin, named IrfanView Shell Extension

Special PlugIn: "IrfanView Shell Extension":

 This PlugIn shows a Context menu for some IrfanView operations in Windows Explorer or other file managers. You can select several files and: Play slideshow, Load files in Thumbnails window, Start JPG Lossless Rotation or Convert images to another format.

Regarding format converting: IrfanView's default quality setting for saving is 80%. You will need to go into File > Batch conversions... if you want to change this.

Thank you for the heads up.
But i rarely use any plugins for Irfanview, i use it strictly for image viewing and making short quick avatars for forums,  and also for image conversion
combined with Faststone Image Viewer.
Nothing beats this combination, even with or without plugins.
