FastStone - Software - Free Image Viewer and manipulation program

Just found this http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm
It looks to be very easy to use and also includes Screen Capture.

Yep, its about the best thing I've used for just viewing pictures. The full screen facility and zoom is so simple.
You can also package up pictures into a slideshow exe to distribute without giving the ability to access the individual files.
Never really used the image manipulation stuff much though...

I've used IrfanView for a number of years and never found anything to beat it.
It has good capture facilities, whole screen (works with multiple monitors), Foreground window or just the client area of the foreground window (without the title bar, windows buttons and the frame) - also an option as to whether to include the cursor.
It has loads of plugins for different image formats, including JPEG 2000 which is often missing from other packages.

I am also a big fan of irfan  (no pun intended  Wink )
Used it for as long as I can remember.
I find it particularly useful for displaying music sheets.
