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.

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.

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.

This is great!

How many times have you downloaded .png format icons?
This is quick, easy, and the output icon is the best quality i have seen.

Sure there are other similar tools, but the icon output is always crappy or small.

Thanks !

I agree with Magibon. I've been using ToYcon since version 0.8 and it still has to fail me.

Looking at it it just enlarges the image then denoises it which makes it look blurry. Similar effect can be achieved using Paint.NET to enlarge the area then denoise it.
