Editors' Review

+

Firegraphic has the look and feel of a basic image viewer that realized it could be much more.

It starts up with a standard thumbnail manager of your My Pictures folder that includes an Explorer-style file tree with a drag-and-drop thumbnail tray for later use. It also previews thumbnails when you mouse over an unopened folder. The app supports a diverse range of image formats, including PSD, RAW and RAS, but once you select an image, the range of editing tools would be unimpressive if Firegraphic was any more expensive.

Fortunately, it's reasonably affordable for what it does. The emphasis is on viewing the image, so the main interface is clutter-free. This maximizes screen space, which is useful for the integrated slide show; the downside is that all the major editing tools live in drop-down menus and don't have individual buttons. There is an adjustments icon in the toolbar, but clicking it reveals a menu, requiring another step before you can begin to alter the photo and thus defeating the time-saving purpose of a one-click toolbar.

Impressively, the app can both burn images to CD and acquire them from a scanner, but it's a resource-hogging program that we found erratically sluggish. Firegraphic is a good lightweight image viewer, but isn't up to the task of in-depth editing.

"Poorly construed program"

January 04, 2007  |  By kevbo0

 |  Version: Firegraphic 9.0.900

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This program is clearly inferior to others out there including ACDsee. It is a poor copycat that will does not perform with the same speed or dexterity.

"Terrible program. Not worth a free trial."

November 24, 2006  |  By kevbo0

 |  Version: Firegraphic 8.5

Pros

None, unless you like to have your computer freeze and require a restart every other time you use the program, and don't mind having files erased from your hard disk.

Cons

I downloaded this program and it erased all of my photos. Fortunately I had backed them up so I did not lose anything of value. This program is buggy and caused my system to crash 5 times out of the 9 times I opened it. Not recommended for anyone (except maybe your worst enemy, but even that may be too cruel).

"Cool Soft but Lacks something..."

April 20, 2005  |  By easysoft

 |  Version: Firegraphic 7.0.713

Pros

It really performs well on managing photos, and it has a lot of cool features that I wish ACDSee had.. It has a cool mouseover preview that I love, customizable skin color, fast image viewing and more...

Cons

It lacks the Previous/Next button in viewer mode, your mouse has to have a wheel so that you can move to next/previous picture in viewer mode.

"Great photo management and editing app!"

April 07, 2005  |  By computer_genius

 |  Version: Firegraphic 7.0.711

Pros

Third to ACDSee PowerPack and Ashampoo Photo Commander! Great interface! Oodles of features!

Cons

I bought it, but i think they fooled me. I tried to contact support, but they didn't reply. They gave me a fake serial number. I contacted support lots of times, but it never replied. I won't recommend this for that fault. Too bad, `cuz it's a great app.
