If so, you surely know how frustrating the native Photos app can be.
I happen to like Windows 10 overall, but the Photos app leaves a lot to be desired due to its dearth of features and capabilities.
After my most recent photo editing session I decided that I really needed to find myself a better app.
After trying several of the most popular photos apps, I ultimately decided on a fantastic app called FastStone Image Viewer.
Why FastStone? Because it has a ton of powerful features yet it’s extremely easy to use and understand. What’s more, it also happens to be the fastest photo app I’ve ever used.
If you open a folder in FastStone you’ll immediately see thumbnails of all the images in that folder.
Double-click on any image and that image will automatically open in full screen mode.
Once an image is displayed full-screen you can easily navigate from image to image by pressing either the Left or Right arrow key on your keyboard.
Alternatively, you can right-click on either a thumbnail or a full-screen image to display a context menu that’s simply loaded with useful options.
One of my favorite features of FastStone is the ability to quickly create a slideshow of the images in a folder, complete with accompanying music.
Bottom line: FastStone Image Viewer is now my Photos app of choice when I’m using a PC with Windows 10. I have a feeling it’ll quickly become your favorite as well once you give it a try.
