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.

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!

This program's GIF animator includes a great function to easily delete frames from a GIF animation. It works beautifully on screen recordings where you usually need only a handful of frames to demonstrate a process, bug, or sequence.
