A must have for every computer.
what I love about this software are the quick and easy keyboard commands, how it give complete image management of png, jpg, gif and more, the ability to open a window from within the application, the slide show, the ability rename multiple images, simple drop & drag from one directory or drive to the next, there are so many more features inside FastStone Image Viewer, so much more most indeed.

Oh how this Application has continued to impress me.
the utilities that it has, and the ease of it use, gets it for me. How it is so easy to manage library's of digital images and organize them. How it integrates with the Windows Operating system.
the continued updates, and the future direction of this application is why it deserves a five star, Oh and by the way did I mention that it is FREE!
3.5.2 Beta (Oct 22, 2007)
K-Lite Codec Pack will not play nice with Apple Quick Time and Itunes (?) Keeps crashing ...on Vista
they should have a work around for this
But it is nice to see them make a few teaks here and there...
4.5.1 Beta 2 (Oct 5, 2007)
With Vista Codec Package installed, you won't need to install any other codec or filter..
With Vista, this has proven over & over again.

Yea I agree FTP Voyager is a great app, but it has seem to get bloated over the last updates and the price has made me make the move.
File zilla is a great FTP, open source and Free!
