    In the image editor/viewers I have used, all of the low cost or
    bundled variety, all have a preview function for adjustments for
    controls like brightness, contrast, etc. I haven't used any of
    the high cost packages, like photoshop.

    The ones I have used provide two small to medimum sized images
    showing the image before and with the adjustments that you set.

    Faststone provides a full screen preview function. You can push
    the preview button down with the mouse and see the effects on
    the entire screen.

    I discovered that when I view control changes in full screen, I
    see differences and effects that completely escaped me when
    looking at small and medium windows. I think there is value in
    viewing such changes big screen.

  2. FWIW, I'd put PSP in the low cost barrel. It has the ability for one to
    both scale the window showing before/after images and show a full screen
    preview as well.

    I'm glad to see another happy FastStone user. This free utility appears to
    be under appreciated.

    A good feature is selecting two images (or more) to compare side by side
    If the images are scattered press the CTRL while selecting. Side by side
    selections use SHIFT. If two types of resize have been done or a choice
    of sharpening then this can be compared.
