Photoscape is an all-in-one photo software that lets you fix, arrange, and enhance your photos. It includes a wide range of tools, including a viewer/editor, batch renamer, RAW format converter, animated GIF maker, collage generator, paper print, splitter, contact sheet, and more. Includes a meta-data viewer for camera model, software version, DPI, etc. and file renamer that lets you for example change file names to the date the camera gave them.

Every few months I discover something new and cool with this program.  Animated GIF tricks, photo edit functions, framing tricks, and photo collages. Today it was dragging and dropping an image onto the program icon and seeing the wealth of edition, annotation, and symbol tools available.

Although I've moved over to freeware options for most things I do, I've maintained use of Microsoft Photo Manager for years when working on my own photo collection. Today however, I was on a machine without it so I got PhotoScape up and found I actually prefer it.

quote @tc: You can stop the intro photo by editing photoscape.cfg, and turning intro.photoOn from on to off. You could also edit the url, to point to a local image

I installed on USB with 7zip.
In addition to tc's message: if you make photoscape.cfg read-only, it will keep it's settings in the cfg file.

I also deleted the plugins dir (unwanted toolbar in there), and renamed the file PSMsgHook.dll in the main folder to PSMsgHook.dllold.

The current version of Photoscape is 3.6.2. The program can be extracted with 7zip, but the settings are in
\Documents and Settings\USER\Application Data\PhotoScape\
which means that it's not portable.

Kho: retested extraction process and it worked fine. Are you extracting 3.4? Please post in forums if you continue having problems.

@pip: well it seems to me that you are the one that is uninformed because firewalls only stop internet connections they don't stop any kind of virus (other than a worm) so downloading a different firewall is almost point less and a waste of computer.

Trust me theres stuff in windows firewall that you don't know about.
why? cause you never looked.

NOTE: also if I remember right windows firewall was on a 1 of top 5. So no windows firewall don't sux that bad especially when you got to add the port manually unlike others where it just asks to add a program and your done.
