Fastone Image Viewer

Bloggers and website owners often have some trouble trying to keep people from stealing their work -- both the contents of their website and the pictures seem to be fair game when it's posted online. The artwork prints that you painstakingly took pictures of and edited so that it would look better suddenly appears on some other site without your prior knowledge.

A strategy that most bloggers use nowadays for their pictures is putting a watermark on their picture. Most photo editing software would be able to do this. But for people who do not have a lot of time on their hands, a batch editing software is a great tool to use.

I personally prefer fastone. It's not as sophisticated as adobe photoshop, but it does the basic photo editing jobs quickly. I usually resize pictures and put a watermark so that I can put it on my blog. This does the job well, and fast -- as editing can be done in batches.

I also like that it has a portable version. The portable version is the one I'm currently using, since I use other computers too. I appreciate the fact that I can put it in my USB flash drive and work on pictures even if I'm using somebody else's computer, without needing to download it.

Oh, and the cost? It's FREE!
