How to Tag Images Using FastStone Image Viewer

Tagging images allows you to group photos in a particular fashion to do something with them, such as put them in a slideshow, rename them, move them, etc. Read this article to learn how to do that with FastStone Image Viewer.


Turn on file tagging.

By default, tagging is turned off in Faststone. To turn it on, click on Tag >> Allow File Tagging. When it has been turned on, you will see a checkmark beside it.

Look to the left of the dialog box that says ‘Images’.

The red box was added when you changed the tagging feature.

Select the images that you want to tag.

Click on Tag >> Tag/Untag. This will put a red box on all of the selected images.

  • Alternatively, you can tag the selected files by simply pressing the key. (Be sure it is the facing the correct way).

Access the tagged files.

Click on the red box that became available earlier. This will cause only the tagged files to show. Now you can do whatever you are wanting to do with them (Slideshow, Rename, Move).


  • By tagging, you are just marking the files for one reason or another. This is not tagging as you would do in Flickr.
