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.

Pros :

  • Just works fine, speedy and easy to learn.
  • A lot of features for image manipulation.
  • Great hotkeys support.
  • Google Maps and Google Earth compatibility.
  • Free for personal use.

Cons :

  • No auto update.
  • Some bugs relating Windows integration.

I have been a long-time CorelDRAW user in the past, using versions 6 till 9 intensively. I've used newer releases (12 and X7) less frequently, since I moved to OSX, alas (there once was a Mac version, but that was quickly abandoned). I've seriously considered it and my wife is still using it to create illustrations for her Math classes. CorelDRAW especially is very efficient for technical drawing and illustration, although it is not a real CAD drafting system (it lacks some of the essential snapping tools and works less efficient for this type of drafting - besides, they provide CorelCAD for that, although that is a completely different software). The good control over grids, snapping and shape/curve editing make it a professional environment.It used to come with some other applications (CorelDREAM for 3D, R.A.V.E. for Flash), but the only constant companion software seems to be PhotoPAINT, which is a very usable alternative to Photoshop. A little less convincing, but still very usable and complete. I remember being spoiled with a huge clipart collection and a PRINTED catalog, back in the days.To me, CorelDRAW really shines when it comes to refined, precise technical drawings, combining curves, text, filled shapes, gradients and even integrating images. It is a good DTP system although less popular than Illustrator, which is its closest rival. For longer, multi-page documents, it becomes less handy, but for brochures, leaflets, manuals, calendars and all other documents with one or a few pages, it works really well. I also like the layer system, which allows you to define layers which don't print, layers which are repeated and all pages alongside the regular layer options such as show/hide and lock. The text system takes some getting used to, but you have full control over fonts, kerning, sizes, spacing and even linking boxes to flow the text.

Pros :

  • Very complete and professional vector editing.
  • Also includes PhotoPAINT, as an alternative to Photoshop
  • Good control over color, shape merging and combining.
  • Also usable for Multi-page documents (although not a full DTP system).
  • Snapping and Grids and precision editing work fine.
  • Fair Price and better-licensing options then Adobe.

Cons :

  • Less supported in the industry, which is focused on Adobe software.
  • If you compare with the full suite of Adobe tools, you only have Vector and Image with CorelDRAW
  • Not available for OSX.

FastStone Photo Resizer, which is also available as a portable tool for running on USB flash drives, allows you to select a large group of images from multiple folders, then convert them into a different format, rename them and even perform a host of batch image-processing functions, such as resizing, colour correcting or adding a watermark.

Corel VideoStudio Pro X7 is a stand-alone video editing tool that provides a straightforward editing interface for newcomers, a quite accessible interface for additional customization options, 64-bit performance, and some additional bonus features, all at a price well under $100.
