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.

"Great for the basics"

April 13, 2011  |  By annaflorey

 |  Version: FastStone Photo Resizer 3.0

Pros

I'm a novice at photo editing, and I need software to do a few basic things. FastStone does exactly what I need it to.

Cons

My only complaint is that the Save As feature assumes I'm saving a batch, and it's clunky to use for each image. I haven't figured out how to Save As for 1 image at a time.

Summary

So glad I found this. I tried several over the last few weeks, and this one wins hands down. I even have Photoshop Elements, but it's too complicated for me given what I need to do with images. I resize, crop, and add blank space to the edges of product images so they display properly on an ecommerce store.

"A good quality, easy to user resizer."

March 31, 2011  |  By kammre

 |  Version: FastStone Photo Resizer 3.0

Pros

Very good quality results when editing, including enlargements. I've tried the various filters when resizing for optimum results. Easy to use. I like the ability to drag and drop images into the screen from my folders.

Cons

Preview screen for adjustments is a too wide for my monitor - the right side is not completely visible. Crop feature is difficult to use when resizing at the same time.
More of a wish than a con: add a clean-up/smoothing feature for grainy images.

Summary

An easy to use resizer giving good quality results.

"Great free software that others charge for"

March 01, 2011  |  By cliffmat

 |  Version: FastStone Photo Resizer 3.0

Pros

Lots of features, quick and easy to use.

Cons

None so far...

Summary

This software is quick and incredibly easy to use, and offers many features that others charge for. As well as the standard "predefined" resizing, this gives you options for fixed wdith/length resizing, watermarks, cropping - everything you need.
Easily converted thousands of images for my website in about half an hour.

"Hard for newbie novice to understand"

December 27, 2010  |  By stonerfamily10

 |  Version: FastStone Photo Resizer 3.0

Pros

This program looks like it can do a lot of different functions. Nice looking design.

Cons

As a novice, I find this program difficult to navigate.

Summary

I want to convert batches of photos to a 375 x 375 pixel format each without image distortion. I need something that is easy for me to learn. This program requires time-consuming study and practice. I think I could like this program better if I could figure out how to use it to meet my needs.
