    "Good application"

    February 28, 2015  |   By egaskrad

    Version: FastStone Image Viewer 5.3

    Pros

    It is free. The installation is fast. The program loading is fast. The program running is fast in a folder of 1500+ photos. The interface is very clean yet rich with features. I sense no ad or malware or anyone trying to access my firewall, yet. Image quality is okay. Definitely a must have and I like it better than my infraview.

    Cons

    The image editing is pretty preliminary. A lot better than paint that is for sure, but do not give too much expectation. It is an image viewer. There is no resize in some of the dialog. I know, pretty minor.

    Summary

    I lost my infraview with my old computer. This one is better in term of folder management. I am able to access my onedrive, google desktop, desktop dropbox with ease. It saved clicks. I don't think you are going to move over from infraview if you are familiar with it, but fsimageviewer can be a possible alternative if anything goes wrong.

    "The Absolute Best (better than irfanview)"

    January 18, 2015  |   By sixwingsfire

    Version: FastStone Image Viewer 5.3

    Pros

    Features, layout, speed, stability, customization

    Cons

    Honestly none that I can think of...

    Summary

    Give it a try and you won't go back to anything else. I use it for my default viewer for everything. I'm a photographer and deal with images a lot. I view all my images through FastStone 1st and I export the ones I want to process in Photoshop right from inside FastStone, working hand in had with any image manipulation software that you want to assign it to. Also once I'm done with my Photoshop work and it's time to crop the images for print, FastStone's crop tool is the easiest and most powerful one to use - hands down. Other uses for FastStone that I have found handy are the Batch tools, the contact page builder and without a doubt the image compare feature has been an invaluable tool to see side by side which photo is "the keeper" and which one to discard between 2 similar poses or scenes.

    "Top of the heap for free photo editing software!"

    December 29, 2014  |   By Pilgrimsarbour

    Version: FastStone Image Viewer 5.3

    Pros

    Very easy to use with a little practice. The features I find most helpful are the crop board, the draw board and clone & heal. Adding text to your photos and memes is a snap!

    Cons

    None after several years of everyday use.

    Summary

    I probably complicate things too much, but as a modest, older computer use, I find that using FastStone in conjunction with Microsoft Paint really does the trick for me for easy cloning of large areas.

    Low resources comsumption
    Helps maintaining image files organized

    Cons

    Can't think of one yet

    Summary

    I've been using this software for +5 years and serves me more than well.
    Never felt the need for more tools, eficacy or eficiency regarding image managing software.
    It does evrything and does it well
