It's the best image viewer I've ever used. Awesome UI and hotkeys, fast; everything I wanted in an image viewer. Near perfect.

@I am Bass
After reading your comment I deleted the Contaware folder and now it's working stealth. That folder contained some log file.

ripu on 2016-02-15 09:54

It again created that log file named log.txt. It contains some errors that occurred some days only. And when that happens, it does not remain stealth.

@Bruce: Thank you and updated

I have been using FastStoned for several years and I really like it very much. It does everything I want almost intuitively, I have used other capture programs in the past but none compare to FastStoned.I use just about every day either resizing or cropping a pic so I'm glad it’s always here 4me.

Bruce on 2016-08-29 07:36

I'm a great fan of this program. And, as I've said before, just when you think FastStone Image Viewer can't get better the developers come up with another gem ... this time it supports dual instances, which allows you to run two image viewers at the same time, drag and drop images between them, and compare images from different folders side by side. Well done FastStone!

Awfully convoluted CLI solutions ;-)

| c:\>artsage64 mypicture.jpg
| (Exit with..."Esc" key...;-)

Plain batch file:

| REM art.bat yourpic.jpg
| @echo off
| artsage64 %1

Prompting batch file :

| REM artp.bat (type input file name after prompt)
| @echo off
| set /p arg= pix ?
| artsage64 %arg%

See also artsage.txt doc included in the package, where all intricate CLI options will be revealed...;-)
