I have always used Irfanview & like everything else it keeps getting updated & extra features added. As far as I am aware it does everything that I want so what is better about Faststone in your opinion? I take around 10,000 pictures a year & crop , or something else very simple, to them all.


PS why does ???? now not recognize the end of quotes symbols & put my reply in the quotes? It has done this for the last few weeks & several of my posts have been corrected by moderators.

Faststone has a lookalike Windows Explorer interface that I'm comfortable with, intuitive folder management, can handle huge amounts of photos quite quickly, doesn't keep an ever increasing repository of thumbnails, batch processing of files, renaming, watermarking, emails and can even read RAW files....

Gimp (apart from the name!), has a strange 2 part interface I can't get my head around...

Actually, I also use Paint Shop Pro  ... 7 circa  2000AD!!! 
 Old but for 'simple' image manipulation, it VERY fast!

I also use FastStone - a great bit of kit - worth investing time to understand what it can do - I suspect I only use 5% of it's features

I normally just click to select several images / right click / email / pick an image size and save to folder rather than actually email - job done

It's also great for navigating your collection of pics

or just use photobucket?


You are having a laugh aren't you !!, you do realise that they are just allowing photos on 3rd party sites for only a limited time while they get their house back in order, then they will be blocked again unless you pay a fee..


From their Site.
last week
For a limited time, our current customers’ hosted images have been restored and Photobucket is introducing a new pricing plan that is built around everyone’s needs.

We trying to draft up a definitive guide to posting photos here on Mayhem.

This is what we have so far.... anything else needed?



 http://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,61103.0.html

Of course you can use many of the many online image hosting sites, there are various guides in this topic but as they change so often,
 no further guidance will be given.  ( Feel free to post you own guide if you wish! )
