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.

"I liked this so much I sent money after five minutes."

November 17, 2009  |  By Volcano DAn

 |  Version: FastStone Image Viewer 3.9

Pros

Fast, intuitive, contains most of the features I use (How did they know what I needed?).

Cons

No hot key for the screen capture I use a lot.

Summary

I gave this one to all my friends and family. When tasked on short notice to give a talk, I used FS rather than my larger database to find, enhance, and resize the images before putting them into Powerpoint.

"Way way WAY better than IrfanView, and still FREE !!!"

November 10, 2009  |  By romeo_echo

 |  Version: FastStone Image Viewer 3.9

Pros

Wow! Only one day of use, and I haven't found anything this program CAN'T do! OK, it's not full-blown Photoshop, but for the average user, this will replace IrfanView and any other image browsers/editors, and will leave you very happy.

Cons

Nothing to speak of. Won't sort by aspect ratio. Gives a "Save As" dialog when "Save" would be more appropriate. Clicking "X" on the Edit/Draw window exits without prompting, losing changes -- you have to hit "OK" to make sure changes are saved.

Summary

Incredibly complete and well-thought-out software, just what I've been looking for.

"Could do more"

November 07, 2009  |  By KevinandSeri

 |  Version: FastStone Image Viewer 3.9

Pros

Good, if basic srt of editing tools, batch conversion and stamping

Cons

No search facility, so finding an image can be a long winded affair. IN fairness the package is touted as an editor, but search is a basic requirement in such software these days.

Summary

A good piece of freeware. Note however that several pieces of freeware from these producers have been re-allocated as shareware in recent times. Hopefully this package will not follow that line. Add search functionality and we would not hesitate to recommend this software.
