Editors' Review

+

For a free program, this multipurpose image tool strikes us as a good find. Although the main interface looks too cluttered with buttons at first glance, the three main windows are intuitive enough once get your bearings. FastStone Image Viewer for Windows boasts a nice default design, 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. Other nifty features include multiple folder slide shows, batch cropping and Windows Vista support.

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.

"Excellent software for managing your photos!!!"

October 22, 2007  |  By welshnob

 |  Version: FastStone Image Viewer 3.2

Pros

Brilliant piece of easy to use software. Learn how to use a hatfull of practical applications as you go along. Adequate editing tools for an eager amateur, a few visual effects for a bit of fun, cracking e-mailing facility and very easy to navigate through windows. I've had this piece of software for a fair while now, since I had to get rid of Picasa (hated it) . I haven't made full use of all the options available simply because the software allows you to go beyond necessity ,it has never crashed on my PC and has never sprung any surprises.

This is one of the best free programs I have downloaded. There is so much editing power for being free.

"Great overall photo editor/organizer in a compact package...and it's FREE"

October 09, 2007  |  By amckenz

 |  Version: FastStone Image Viewer 3.2

Pros

It's fast (thus the FastStone?) and it has everything you need to edit and organize all your photos. I love how it automatically recommends a fix when you CTRL-B. You can accept it or change it to suit your taste. I like the GUI interface better than just about all of the other products I have used over the years. Try FastStone Capture...it's great for all your screen capturing needs.

Cons

Another user also mentioned that it tends to hang when scanning photos. The only way I could clear it was to logoff the system and log back in. I prefer PhotoImpression 5 for actual scanning because it never hangs. I would also like to see a fast-key to the red-eye removal function. I don't like having to go up to the EDIT button to click on the Red Eye Removal option.

"The BEST"

October 08, 2007  |  By ddas77

 |  Version: FastStone Image Viewer 3.2

Pros

This is the best image viewing and editing application software I found in recent times. Considering the fact that it is a freeware, it is well programmed and uses justified resources on the computer running the program.

The slideshow mode is terrific and you can also set it up to display various information on the displayed image while running the slideshow.

The Drawing Board is an excellent and well-thought-of feature and should have been part of all picture editing tool.

Batch mode is good to work with, and fast.

Cons

It seems there is nothing yet in this that I haven't liked. Except this. The slideshow should have had an extra option to play tagged files only.

The Batch Rename Mode does not allow renaming of image files based on the file-date and other properties of the image. This should be useful to many users.
