FastStone Image Viewer Comments

Working horse for daily graphic needs

Positive Comment by Chupzzz
about FastStone Image Viewer May 2016

Not ideal, but one of the best software for graphics. Really fast, lots of features, but still very simple.

What I don't like:

  • Outdated UI (don't looks like native app on Win 7 and later)
  • Bad RAW processing: speed, colors (not critical, enough for preview)

Not critical issues at all )

People may probably not noticed, pngs could keep their transparency when resized or color reduced by using this. This feature is not easy to be found for an image tool.

takes forever to load, and if you try to select a certain subset of images or show them in a specific order, it just completely ignores you and shows all the files in the directory in its own order instead.
