Software Update: Faststone Image Viewer 4.2

FastStone Soft has released version 4.2 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 to correct a skewed horizon, and adjust colors, contrast, and brightness. Since version 3.8, the user interface is multilingual, eliminating the need for a separate download per language. New in version 4.2 includes the ability to batch convert multiple images to PDF format, and slightly improved magnifying glass and speed. The full changelog of this release looks like this:

  • Now it is possible to batch convert images into PDF files
