I fully agree with Miklo, having used FastStone for several years, I really like it: does everything I want almost intuitively.I still use version 6.4 . Tried to use the last version 7.6 but reversed to the previous one because in the last release there is a bug in the Multi-Page File Builder to created an Animated GIF (Alt+M):. the resulting GIF file shows only the first 2 loaded images then stops.

it is version 7.0 right now, is portable and free
great viewer, fast and lite. some good lossless transformations
use it as is, support is dead.
take care, thumbnail database is not big enough, optimisation of thumbnail database will clear most thumbs. resizing thumbnails will clear all database so using Tag section is completly useless. (tags are saved on thumbnail database)
Still one of top 3 in my image viewers.
it use SageThumbs
to manage .eps files

@xor: must be related to your system. I'm using the newest version on Win 8.1 x64 and just tested all renaming methods - no problems, no delay. All other functions work as well fast and flawless.

This is my complimentary app to the well known big-one. I'm having trouble renaming a file (F2) it takes 5 seconds to rename it, I had to go back to version 5.3 where it's all fast and normal, no idea if this a bug or a Win 10 thing or something else.

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!

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.
