Editors' Review

+

If you're looking for a fast, reliable, and free way to convert many images at once, look no further than FastStone Photo Resizer. The program outputs files in the most popular formats, including TIFF, GIF, JPEG, and BMP. Besides its batch-conversion skills, the application also can rename pictures in bulk. This program lacks any sort of fancy image effects, but you can make basic tweaks, including cropping, rotating, resizing, and adjusting certain aspects of an image's color. You'll even find a tool for stamping shots with a watermark.

This utility demonstrated speedy performance in our tests, and we appreciate that its main window can be gussied up with several skins. And since it doesn't cost a dime, we have no problem recommending FastStone Photo Resizer to anyone who often works with large bundles of image files.

"Malware/Malicious Site/Dangerous Page/Scams/Fraud"

July 15, 2013  |  By CNETuser71

 |  Version: FastStone Photo Resizer 2.8

Pros

I have used the scanner and it works perfectly.

Cons

I am skeptical of the software's true intended purpose. Results of my findings are below.

I used Google to locate a good file resizer and arrived @
http://www.faststone.org/index.htm
and went to the third link on the page: FastStone Photo Resizer 3.1 Freeware (Last Update: 2011-05-04) which lead me here:
http://www.faststone.org/FSResizerDownload.htm

Now the first mirror: exe
Trend Mirco stated that is was a Dangerous Page and had confirmed that this website can transmit malicious software and has been involved in online scams or fraud.

Now when I used the online scanner Virus Total:
3 different online scanners stated it was a Malware Site.

Finally I used the link provided by CNET: http://download.cnet.com/3055-2192_4-10319476.html?&tag=pdl-redir

Virustotal Online Scanner was used: Malicious site.

Now with that said, I also scanned the files with Trend Mirco, Virus Total Online Scanner, AVG Internet Security and nothing came up.

Summary

Seems like a great product and I use it every other day, but I did have issues after it was downloaded. If you need a program like this Scan the crap out of it with as many different type of scanners you can and backup your system prior to downloading. In the event you are infected by the software you can have it removed and restore your system to its prior condition.

"Quick painless way resize and rename photos in bulk"

August 21, 2012  |  By Anysia

 |  Version: FastStone Photo Resizer 2.8

Pros

Simple user interface

Cons

Washes out the colors during resize

Summary

If you want to reduce the size of a bunch of photos in one quick this will do the job. That being said, I did notice degradation of color saturation. The images went from Adobe RGB color space to Untagged RGB, significantly lessening the color saturation, which was highly visible in side by side comparisons of original images to resized ones. But I do recommend it for resizing for the web or email.

"I dont know what more I could need."

October 29, 2009  |  By Cornelius3D

 |  Version: FastStone Photo Resizer 2.8

Pros

loads of options to resize, crop,colour adjustment, even adding a text overlay which is nice.
The rename function is good and gives a number of options.

Cons

?? none that I have seen yet.

Summary

It just took 34secs to resize 23 massive photos to thumbnails. Has all the options you could want for a thumbnail creator/image resizer .. it is more of an image batch tool then just a resizer/thumbnail creator.
