Note that IrfanView is *NOT* free for commercial use. It is free only
for personal, non-commercial use. Irfan Skiljan has invested a lot of
time and effort into developing an excellent application, and he
deserves to be compensated in the way that he requests.
Even if you are using it for non-commercial purposes, it seems only fair
to make a small donation to him using one of the PayPal links on his
"Support IrfanView" page. 10 Euros is pretty cheap, even with the
currently lousy USD exchange rate.
