There are a lot of Windows Apps I miss on my MacBook Pro. One of them is an awesome free Swiss army knife of image manipulation tools called Irfanview. It lets you batch rename/convert/modify entire directories of images and it’s not bad as an image viewer either. Well, here’s how to get it running on OS X:
[step 1] Download and install WineBottler 1.2.3 (it comes with Wine, you’ll need to install both).
[step 2] Fire up WineBottler and click “Install Predefined Prefixes” and select IrfanView. Then click the Install button.
[step 3] Choose a destination and name for your Irfanview App and click Save. I selected the Desktop.
Upon completion, you’ll receive this message and you should see an Icon for the Irfanview App.
[step 4] Launch & enjoy Irfanview on Mac OS X.
