Thee best viewer - period! 5 stars by busybusy May 07, 2018 (Read all my 212 reviews)
If there was a BEST Viewer Category then this program would Win. It is fast, has tons of options for people who like to personalize, and just works. It has all the features to assist in organizing, simple red-eye removal, slide-show, Batch image resizing, Batch image renaming, setup Favorites folders to easily jump from one location folder to another, and the list goes on. They provide a quick get started tutorial so you can start using it immediately. A lot of the functions and placement of the icons are quite intuitive along with the layout. Kudos to the authors who make this available. show Review details
Glad I tried this viewer! 5 stars by LowStrung Aug 01, 2015 (Read all my 16 reviews)
It took me a long time to finally try Faststone Image Viewer, but now I like everything about it. With its many useful features, it's more than just a viewer. The program is very easy to use, too, and the overall appearance is pleasing to the eye. Waiting for the thumbnail database to be built takes a little patience, but once that's done, all the thumbnails come up instantly as one jumps from folder to folder. FSViewer is now my default image viewer, but there's still one thing I'd like to see improved: There needs to be some way to set a preference for the UI font sizes. The main menu fonts are OK, but those in the dialogs are tiny and hard to read on the 10-inch screen of my Windows 7 netbook without squinting. Nevertheless, since this is unlikely to affect users with larger screens, it hasn't prevented me from giving Faststone Image Viewer a well-deserved 5-star rating. show Review details
Great, it lets you focus on your photos! 5 stars by skybabyblue Apr 15, 2015 (Read all my 5 reviews)
An image viewer that is a pleasure to use and lets you focus on your photos not on the program. Once set up according to your own taste (choice of skin, mouse and navigation options, etc.) you can just sit back and relax and use this everyday. Very rarely will you need to open another tool to mess with your images, but if you do need to open an image with another program you can do this right from inside Faststone using the "edit with external program" feature. I tested many other free image viewers but no others feel as solid as Faststone, solid as a rock (stone) you can say. Recent versions of Faststone image viewer are great but I still prefer the look and feel of version 2.5 the best. Give that version a try if you haven't, sometimes older is better. But either way you shouldn't be disappointed with this program. I'm an artist and a lover of photography so I have spent many long hours enjoying Faststone. show Review details
