it is too big and needs memory, but the author claims to reduce it in last version. Wonderful possibility: recover the shadow area in picture!!!

Two best of the best image editor I found on Portablefreeware:
Fotografix: http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1549#comments
Artweave: http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1390#comments

Fast and light. GIMP still weight.

A very basic photo edit tool that definitely comes in handy. Although light-years away from skilled hands using photoshop, this tool is primarily to fix minor mistakes and picture problems (stains, tears, splotches). Larger wipe areas will show a smudge created by the cleanup tool but sometimes its worth it for what it covers up. Only 1.5 megs makes for a terrifically small and easy tool.

Free Digital Camera Enhancer v1.3

webfork on 5 Jan 2014

Free Digital Camera Enhancer improves photo quality by performing noise reduction, skin smoothing and automatic balance control for you. It works best for portraits or close-ups taken under bad lighting condition.

Category:
System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: Windows registry. I am classifying it as portable because you basically need to tweak the setting for each photo (it does not have a batch mode), so having portable settings does not really buy you anything.
Unicode support: No
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the zipped installer and install to the default folder
  2. Copy DigitalEnhance.exe to a folder of your choice
  3. Uninstall the program
  4. Launch DigitalEnhance.exe

An awesome little photo enhancer that works wonders with underexposed photos! I have both the free Digital Camera Enhancer and the paid DCAutoEnhance from the author. And despite the free version using "older" algorithms, sometimes I think it still does a better job than the newer, paid version.

Surprisingly useful and effective versus the host of other graphics editors I've seen. Has a few targeted features that can really turn around a dull picture. The user interface is clunky (could use some drag-and-drop) but its worth the extra effort for turning around important but dull pictures.
