i haven't really gone through all of its features, but when i downloaded this i wanted one thing and only one thing; an image viewer that would go into full screen mode and can be controlled using the keyboard..
this can do it and howwwww ! plus the added incentive of moving the mouse to different corners to get a plethora of options..
The options include ability to edit the image files in-house
I love the utility it has to apply current image as the custom wallpaper
more importantly, even on an old machine like mine the application is pretty smooth even with a large number of images within one folder

amazing work i must say... worth donating to the developer

The best image organizer, viewer, converter, editor...

about FastStone Image Viewer and Picasa · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

I started using FastStone Image Viewer not so long ago after being fed up with Picasa. Don't get me wrong, I think Picasa is a good piece of software, but it's so limited in functionality compared to FastStone Image Viewer. I never liked the fact that every time you edit a photo in Picasa it creates a hidden copy of the original one. I mean, I understand why they did that, but I personally like to have full control over my photos right from the program, which also means if I want to overwrite the originals, I should be able to do it. FastStone Image Viewer contains some very powerful editing tools. The full-screen viewer is fast. I love how you can zoom in by just holding your left mouse down and moving it over the photo. The batch convert feature is simply amazing! And there's also a portable version. Simply A+ :)

I agree on all points

Yup indeed, I agree with you on all points as well. I used to test another Image Viewer before I started using FastStone Image Viewer. They are both great!

Working horse for daily graphic needs

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  • Outdated UI (don't looks like native app on Win 7 and later)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 )

I use this to rezise or convert my images

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.
