FastStone Image Viewer 4.6 5.3Mb (28-May-2012)
This is the best image manipulation program we have seen for the
general public (Free for home use). The most striking feature
of this program is its ease of use – whereas other programs have you
wonder and even fear their various features, the simplicity of this
program quickly turns any user into an inveterate mad image
manipulator ! You can do everything from the right-click menu
or from the menus that pop up when you take the mouse to the edges
of the screen. It is an odd concept but it works brilliantly.
As for the features, they're all there : image resizing, image
conversion, noise reductions for those noisy photographs, brightness
enhancement for those underexposed photographs, red-eye elimination,
cropping, hue saturation, image sharpening, image blurring, special
effects (sepia, waves, gray scale, drop shadow, lens, frame marks,
bump map, negative), RGB Level, histograms, image conversion, EXIF
data from digital pictures, ability to modify the EXIF data or add
JPEG comments, rotate, invert, slide how, set as default image
viewer. Absolutely brilliant. FREE for PRIVATE (non
commercial) or educational use – commercial organizations must
FastStone Screen Capture 5.3 1.4Mb (16-June-2007)
FuturixImager 6.0 1.3Mb (18-November-2010)
Another gem from FastStone. Use this FREE screen capture to capture any part of your screen into a JPEG, GIF, TIFF, BMP, PCX, DCX, TGA, AVI or even an icon file (ICO). You can capture any Windows or dialogue box, the full-screen, a selected area of your screen, or a scrolling window, and you can copy and paste into a wordprocessor to illustrate a document with screenshots, for example, or you can capture directly to the clipboard or to a file, or to an image editor. Simple but extremely powerful. Can be minimized to the System Tray. Top stuff. FREE for PRIVATE (non commercial) or educational use, commercial organizations must register. WinXP/2003/Vista/2008/Win7.
We have two great graphics file viewers on this page, the brilliant Image Navigator which enables you to view pictures and other graphics files as a collection of slides, and PrintStation which enables you to do the same but... on a printer ! None of them, however, can work as Windows default graphics file viewer so that whenever you double-click on a file in explorer or in an e-mail, it will open up for you to view instead of giving you an error message to the effect that you do not have a relevant viewer.
FuturixImager fills this gap and more : you can modify the images you view, you can capture the screen to file, and you can export images to Windows icons, amongst other things. The world of default Windows viewers is a minefield of buggy or badly designed software.
FuturixImager bucks the trend with quality and power features in a simple interface. Check the "Tools \ Options \ File Formats" menu option after you have installed it. Windows 95/98/ME/NT4/2000/XP. Free.
FuturixImager 6.0 Plug-ins 320K (18-November-2010)
Add-on plugins for FuturixImager above. These plugins allow FuturixImager to handle additional types of graphics files. Run this file to install the plugins.
Image Navigator 3.2 1.5Mb (17-November-2001)
A f.a.n.t.a.s.t.i.c piece of software ! A demonstration in how to write powerful software and yet make it soooooo easy to use. Once you have discovered Image Navigator you will not use any other image or graphics viewer ever. It's an absolute joy to use. Thumbnails, double-click on an image for a full screen, image rotation, slide shows, drag and drop into other applications, rotate right, and left, flip upside down, or from left to right, brilliant right-click menus, and to support all this, a superb print quality. A gem from the Ukraine, and it's free. Stunning, brilliant, wonderful.
3.80 3.2Mb (28-May-2012)
A great product which fills a gap : the ability to print many pictures / graphics file on the same sheet (like contact sheets), with the ability to specify the print size of the pictures, whether to have titles or not, and
more.... An excellent complement to Image Navigator above for anyone who works a lot with graphics
files. This is the 15-day demo version – $19.95 to buy.
