    "Over all great program I rely on as a basic"

    June 16, 2013  |   By boozekat

    Version: FastStone Image Viewer 4.8

    Pros

    Very simple to use

    Cons

    Problem with the scanning function

    Summary

    Although the scanning feature misfires, eventually it will work, and it is my one of main programs...its a keeper/must have for me.

    "I really like it"

    June 10, 2013  |   By rmmccoy

    Version: FastStone Image Viewer 4.8

    Pros

    It has a lot of options that I haven't explored so someone else could get even more out of the program.

    Cons

    I think some of the editing options are lacking. There have been times that I would switch to MSPaint for some tasks.

    "Everything you need for photo browsing and correction."

    June 4, 2013  |   By realj42

    Version: FastStone Image Viewer 4.8

    Pros

    Elegant full screen mode where you can just admire and quickly browse your photos/images or easily switch to sophisticated editing and correction functions, including simple crop & go function, and a really useful 'straighten' tool (depressing how often I need that ...).
    Also has a great explorer mode with thumbnails and expanded view of selected picture - multiple layouts possible.
    RAW file support - most current camera formats supported and raw files can be edited - make sure you set the correct option though otherwise it will just load (and edit) the jpeg preview

    Cons

    Buggy - I have hit several crashes after extensive use, and sometimes crop to file takes the wrong aspect. Also at least one case of a cropped image having the same preview/thumbnail as the original.

    Summary

    Great editor browser for the price. I use it in preference to my FastPictureViewer/Photoshop combo for image browsing and correcting - it is much quicker and more productive.

    "The King Of Image Viewers!"

    May 30, 2013  |  

    Version: FastStone Image Viewer 4.8

    Pros

    The best image viewer around, that has been continually updated since .... wow, a REALLY long time! It especially shines when it comes to viewing images in fullscreen.

    You pretty much never need to run the program in a windows because you can do pretty much everything while you are in fullscreen! Just move the mouse cursor to any one of the 4 borders of the screen, and you'll see why!

    It's also great for resizing those ridiculously huge .jpg pictures you find on the internet. You can make a giant batch of .jpg files to resize, and then let FastStone resize them for you while you sleep! hehehe.

    Oh! It's also great for scanning stuff from a scanner! You won't have to install some awful, bloated, and super slow program that probably came with your scanner. FastStone Image Viewer those this task far better than them!

    And I almost forgot that you can add text and shapes to an image within the program too! It's no Photoshop, but it isn't supposed to be!

    Cons

    The one gripe I've always had is that it is rather slow when browsing a hard drive. But then again, it might be because of the ludicrous amount of .jpg files I have! hehehe.

    Also, the slideshow viewer is limited to just the folder you are currently in. But then again, is there any image viewer that has a slideshow that will traverse multiple folders?

    Summary

    I've been using FastStone image viewer for years, it's one of my staple programs that I use all the time. I've even donated TWICE to them eventhough it is a completely free program that doesn't try to sneak in any adware (i.e. those awful toolbars!). Believe me, looking at images in fullscreen is 10 times better than in a stupid window. I never understood why Irfan View was always more popular. Anyway, this program is the best at what it does, so if you came CNET looking for an image viewer because you are not happy with the one you are using (Windows Image Viewer??) then you won't be disappointed. Keep up the good work guys!

    "Nice piece of software."

    May 29, 2013  |   By tsmith3222a

    Version: FastStone Image Viewer 4.8

    Pros

    Easy and relatively intuitive to use; doesn't require you to spend a lot of time poring over a manual.

    Cons

    Unless I haven't found it amongst the bewildering array of buttons, it could use a "batch" processing feature.

    Summary

    A very nice editor and verrry inexpensive considering that ThumbsPlus (a close competitor) does less and costs $40. You could hardly go wrong "purchasing" this one.

    "Liking what I see so far"

    May 22, 2013  |   By DEHMCH

    Version: FastStone Image Viewer 4.8

    Pros

    Like batch resizing and naming - saves me a lot of time. Many photos can be adjusted for lighting, exposure easily. Only a few Photos need additional eciting.

    I consider it good value.

    Cons

    Its great for what it is. Its not photoshop but it doesn't cost as much either.

    Summary

    I am happy with my purchase. It is a real time saver for me.
