There are built-in Windows tools to manage graphics, but their capabilities are very limited. So if you like to take pictures with a digital camera or just work with graphics files, you should think of an alternative solution. FastStone Image Viewer could be the great alternative. Its main purpose is image viewer, but this program also can handle photos, including batch processing. Using this piece of software one can rename files, change the resolution of the picture, manage color correction, etc. In addition, FastStone Image Viewer supports RAW and displays metadata about the photo EXIF. With the help of this program, you can create slideshows, decorate it with various transition effects and add background music. The full-screen mode is very informative. You can just watch the photos or turn the cursor to the side of the screen and apply some effects, do the edits, explore the EXIF info or choose the other photo in the folder. I often use the batch process feature to convert files to another format. FastStone Image Viewer can quickly convert a JPEG, BMP, GIF, PNG, TIFF and JPEG2000 formats, including the files in the nested folders. Such image settings like color depth, resolution, orientation could be modified on the fly for the whole batch. It is also possible to add watermarks, frames and effects while converting, to set the destination folder. There is also the batch rename feature. FastStone Photo Resizer can rename the files by adding the counter at the end of the name, to find and replace characters in the file names. The selected conversion and renaming settings can be saved for future use.
Since Apple has discontinued Aperture, offering a highly controversial Photos. App instead, I was happy that there is the Lightroom alternative. The recent software update to sixth version convinced me of this again. Lightroom 6 is not a revolution. For many years now, this software development is rather evolutionary, because the app does its main task very well. However, some rather useful features were added recently. The most important change of Lightroom 6 is that the app has learned to use a discrete graphics card, which led to the great speed increase. The next important feature is the ability to automatically detect the faces. When you first start Lightroom CC the program asks whether to include this feature, and if you enable it, the program begins to scan your library. My twenty thousand photos have been processed somewhere for five hours. Lightroom finds people on the photos and asks you to name them. Due to this you can quickly find people in your library. It is nice that the number of false positives is small. Lightroom 6 also offers HDR feature and panoramas stitching. Both functions are quite simple: you need to choose which photos you want to merge, then select the desired menu item. Lightroom will show a window with the basic settings and after a few seconds you will receive the result. You can save the picture in DNG format. It is also worth mentioning that the slideshow in Lightroom 6 can include photos (with different panning effects), video, and music. And the module for web galleries creating can handle HTML 5.
