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 donationware picture viewer."

June 25, 2011  |  By Kirk Bubul

 |  Version: FastStone Image Viewer 4.5

Pros

It is donationware.

Cons

The program is missing a renaming icon on the toolbar. The user must learn the hard way that selected files may have the name changed by pressing the F2 key.

Summary

This is my basic file picture viewer. I like it so much that I made a donation to the author.

"Exceptionally versatile program."

May 26, 2011  |  By mrmagill

 |  Version: FastStone Image Viewer 4.5

Pros

More features than I have room to list here, and free.
Easy to use.
Does not obscure work area with menus.

Cons

None found.

Summary

This is a great program and has been for many years. I especially like that when you're viewing pictures you don't have the screen all cluttered up with menus until you WANT a menu. Moving to either side, top, or bottom brings up relevant menus. This is simply a great program for viewing, editing, and general repair of pictures.
