I'm not familiar with FastStone. I've been using IrfanView for years. Would you judge FastStone as better?

IrfanView is much more powerful, with more features. But I like the simplicity of FastStone's products, and what they offer is sufficient for my modest needs.

Hans

I too am a long time IrfanView user. I have tried Faststone Image Viewer and I felt I ought to like it but I just preferred the 'old school' look and feel of IrfanView so I've stuck with that.

It's old school, yes, and very functional and effective. I have it linked with Paint.net for when I want to do some serious photo editing.
