FastStone Image Viewer is an
image viewerfor Microsoft Windows. It includes a fully integrated thumbnail file manager and a database, so it can also be used as an image organizer. When the program is launched, there may be a delay as the thumbnail view is managed, particularly the first time when the thumbnail cache database is built.
As of|September 2008|alt=As of version 3.6, usage of FastStone Image Viewer remains cost-free for personal and educational (including non-profit organizationFact|date=September 2008) use, while still requiring a registration for commercial use.
General program features include image viewing, management, comparison, red-eye removal, emailing, resizing, cropping,
batch processing, batch renaming, color adjustments, color spacemanagement, lossless JPEG rotations, a thumbnails database and, unused before in image viewers, a customizable magnifier zooming option usually available in accessibility software. The program also sports a slideshowfeature, which includes a musical slideshow and over 150 transitional effects, and since version 3.0 features a memory card image retriever.
In addition to the core functionality of the cost-free version, the commercial version is said to have exclusive features, such as (described in the 2.7 note):
* Comparing images side-by-side (up to 4 at a time)
* Fully customizable
* Drag and drop thumbnail order arranging (Custom Sort)
* Creation of artistic image montages from photos for personalized desktop wallpapers (Wallpaper Anywhere)
* Supports dual-monitor configurations.
However, in version 3.3 all the above mentioned features are included, so it seems that there is no significant difference between a free and a commercial version anymore.

The FastStone Image Viewer was first released in
2004by FastStone Soft. Since then, a new stable version of the program has been released every few weeks to few months.
Since version 3.1, a multilingual version has been made available (supporting Simple and Traditional Chinese, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish).
This Windows program is provided in three forms: as a normal-install executable, a zip file of the same, or as a fully portable no-install zip file.
According to FastStone, version 2.7 and all previous releases have been found to be using improperly licensed images and icons, and as a result, FastStone requested that version 2.7 and older copies of FastStone Image Viewer cease to be used, with all licenses updated to version 2.8 for both free and commercial versions. This announcement was made on their web site the same date that version 2.8 was posted.
* Version 3.5 is incompatible with 64-bit operating systems (XP/Vista) on machines with more than 2 GB of RAM.
* Also, as of version 3.6,
Unicodeis not yet supported.
