Editors' Review

+
For a free program, this multipurpose image tool strikes us as a good find. Although the main window looks too cluttered at first glance, it's intuitive enough after you get your bearings. FastStone Image Viewer for Windows boasts a nice design already, but you can customize it to your liking with several skins. Clicking a thumbnail puts a larger view of the shot in the lower-left pane, and you zoom in simply by dragging the mouse around. Though its image-editing tools can't compete with those offered by a full-featured suite, there's still enough here to make a decent amount of tweaks to your shots. You can resize, crop, remove red-eye, and adjust color, brightness, and contrast. You'll also find a few simple effects and filters, including Lens, Waves, and Morphs. FastStone Image Viewer for Windows can batch-convert files into a number of popular image formats including GIF, BMP, PSD, and PNG, and the slide-show creator allows you to apply transitions, specify the interval between images, and add your own MP3s as a soundtrack. We can recommend this program to everyone but professional designers.

"the best of the best"

August 09, 2005  |  By african_forest

 |  Version: FastStone Image Viewer 2.15

Pros

great performance, very intelligent features, deals with raw images better than acdsee 7, many, many image editing functions including ratio cropping etc, external editor support, customizable database location, all functions available in fullscreen mode thanks to the unique slide-out menu panels: you can browse images, even browse the folder tree in full screen mode!

and this software is even getting better with each version.

try the latest version (currently 2.15), but you can also try the latest beta, you won't have any problems.

i'm currently working with 2.20 beta 08.08 and i'm in love with it!

a highlight of free software (for private use), can't praise it enough.

Cons

no cons.

Pros

I have tryed all the photo editors I can find and always go back to FastStone, so easy to use, and its free, how they do that?

They even have a 4 in 1 browser I put on another computer and its pretty cool to use too, check it out, wont hurt your system, and its fun to play w/.

Cons

I only wish they had "superimpose" or maybe they do and I just dont know how to do it, other than that its great!

"Handy Program To Have"

July 18, 2005  |  By Able Cable

 |  Version: FastStone Image Viewer 2.15

Pros

FastStone Image Viewer is a great program to have on your computer. It is very versatile to work with any images you may have, even the .wmf clip art files that it can be hard to find a viewer for. It was not the least bit overwhelming when it came to working with the menus. Customer support is top-notch. This program will serve you well when it comes to viewing and managing your image files. A definite "must-download".
