Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Aug 19, 2009

We admit that one of the reasons we don't post more photos on the Internet is that we are just plain lazy when it comes to uploading and editing our images. We connect the camera, we wait for the editing software to load, we futz around with unintuitive menus and functions--even basic resizing and cropping is a hassle. Fortunately for us, now there's FastStone Maxview. This basic photo viewer and editor allows users to make quick, simple adjustments to their photos. Photoshop this is not, but for quick, basic edits, the program is great.

The program's interface is simple and fairly intuitive. Users open photos and are then able to make a variety of basic changes, including rotating, resizing, cropping, and adjusting to lightness, saturation, hue, and RGB levels. The program also allows users to view their photos as a slideshow to which music can be added. More experienced users will appreciate a variety of more-advanced settings, including adjustments to facilitate the handling of raw images and the option to enable CMS. All of the program's features are easy to use, and we like how quickly the program loads and functions. This is a great choice both for novice users who get overwhelmed by having too many features and more experienced users who are looking for ease of use over power.

FastStone Maxview has a 45-day trial period. It installs desktop icons without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users seeking a quick and simple way to edit their photos.
