    XnView is pretty incredible. I first tried out the "lite" (portable) version, and really appreciated all of its customization options, from colors to keyboard shortcuts. The interface is not bad, and also highly customizable (from super detailed to clean and neat). I enjoy and trust it so much that it I have now--finally--replaced my default photo viewer (Windows Live Photo Gallery). Oh, and it's freeware (with donations appreciated). Highly recommended.

    Very useful for me.

    After extra effort to setup full or half screen viewer - simply perfect.

    I wanted to wean myself off of commercial software and P{aint Shop Pro with its integrated file manager was what I had been using. I hate Corel products - buggy junk with insidious nagware even in the paid versions - so the GIMP and Xnview became my mainstays. The combination is far superior to the Corel product.

    Excellent image management tool.

    FIVE stars.

    I would like to place a copyright symbol on some of my photographs preferably with a transparent background so I can reveal the photo underneath is there a easy way to do this.

    I have Xnview installed I'm hoping that can do the job, I do not have Photoshop most of the forums suggest that's the program to use, but its such a big file and apart from this small C in a circle I have no need for the program. If someone already uses a copyright symbol or knows how its done I would appreciate their help.
