CPix Download & Usage

The CPix download consists of a 2MB Zip folder extracting to 4.5MB. Simply double-click the extracted executable to run the software:

As you can see from the above screenshot, CPix’s interface is simple and uncluttered. The circle on the left is revealed with a mouseover and a similar circle on the right is also revealed with a mouseover. By clicking these circles you can scroll through multiple images within a folder- a neat and tidy method for providing a scrolling function.

CPix can convert between various image formats, including from WebP to both PNG and JPG:

A somewhat surprising omission is converting from JPG to PNG. PNG to JPG is supported but, for some strange reason, not vice versa.

If you’re uncertain about some of CPix’s menu items, such as EJPG, EPL, and MPO, opening those menu items will reveal more information via an “About” link:


CPix comes with a lot of appealing qualities, apart from being free and portable, CPix fits a heck of a lot of features into such a small package all presented in a simple, easy-to-use layout. As well as being a lightweight image viewer, CPix supports, resizing, conversion, animations, EJPG (Encrypted JPEG file format), PL (Photo List file format), EPL (Encrypted PL), MPO (Multi-Picture file format), EMPO (Encrypted MPO), dual image, basic editing functions, and more. Well worth checking out.

NOTE: If you’d prefer a more powerful image editor, including a more comprehensive range of image conversions and editing options, check out “Pictor” (also free and portable) from the same developer.
