Software Update: FastStone Image Viewer 4.1

FastStone Soft has released the final release of version 4.1 of its popular Image Viewer program. FastStone Image Viewer is free, small and fast, and packed with thoughtful functionality for viewing and editing images, such as rotate (lossless for jpeg), crop, resize, remove the red-eye effect, rotate the photo at any angle to correct camera skew and adjust colors, contrast, and brightness. Since version 3.8, the user interface is multilingual, eliminating the need for a separate download per language. In version 4.1, among other things, the possibility of an automatic crop during rotation has been added. Here are all the changes since version 4.0:

  • Improved the loading speed of JPEG images and embedded preview of RAW images
