This Bulk Photo Processor Resizes, Watermarks, And More


If you've been around the freeware industry for a while then you'll know all about the Faststone Image Viewer. It's a brilliant program for locating and viewing your digital photos.

From the same stable comes the Faststone Image Resizer. The name, though, is actually quite inaccurate, as it does an awful lot more than simply resizing images.

Yes, you can change the size of some pictures. Or you can add any image as a watermark, and choose the level of opacity. You can crop, rename, change the DPI, add borders, rotate, and much more. And you can do it to entire folders of images in one operation.

Faststone Image Resizer is free and you can find it at for download. The program is malware-free according to VirusTotal and Web of Trust, and is less than 2 MB to download. It should work on Windows 7 and 8.x with no problem. It's available as both installable and portable versions.

A-HA ! I have some tight security in FireFox, so I just tried IE and BINGO ! Now I have a download link.

I can't find a download link for the FastStone Resizer, but it says that if I donate I can get a license.

Thanks for the heads up.

This is very handy although you can't go past Perfect Effects by On1 Software. If you are working with a lot of images I would expect that your more than an just an amateur and your post processing workflow will consist of several processes to finalize your images for print or publishing.

With On1 you can perform a plethora of tasks including batch processing. The software is a perfect companion/plugin for Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom as well.

You would be doing yourself a favor checking out this awesome software and the previous versions are usually free which is currently "Perfect Effects 9 Free".

Perfect Effects is available at

For the renaming of files I use Bulk Rename Utility - it is awesome so check it out here.

P.s. I am a user of this software only although I can't praise them enough for the time it saves me.

I believe that all of this capability is already included in the Faststone Image Viewer software.

Can find no way of downloading this Product without paying $19.99. Wonder if you can help!

It is free, you should not download the commercial version
Download the portable version, it works fine for me. I downloaded that last year.

Did you follow the link given in the article? The page says "free for home users". And the download link is provided there too.
