Pixia is a powerful raster graphics editor with a unique user interface. It includes various photo filters, brushes, layers, text and broad file format support. Note that the program has a fairly unique interface so, when learning Pixia, it's easier to discard everything you know about other editors like Photoshop or Paintshop and start from scratch with the tutorials and help files.

Checker: a portable version of Paint.net is available, but untested and not something I would use: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=61988#p61988

Webfork is correct, there is a portable version. Worked fine for me on XP. I also like the knockoff of it called Pinta available for Linux. It's not full-featured yet, but it certainly works.
Off-topicP If you really want portable, put your favorite version of Linux including whatever programs you want on a USB stick and you've got an entire portable OS!

Download link still pointing to Pixia 6.00G rather than to 6.00H and gets a "not found" error.

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.

attention, this linke for download goes to a no portable version

@Regis: ...which would probably be v1.20?

I used Universal Extractor to open the installer, then copied the {app} folder to my PortableApps directory on my USB drive. I renamed it to Artweaver and created the .ini file. Seems to run just fine! I guess the {embedded} directory contains license files and so forth; not necessary to run the program. Very nice!

@foxcole: click the link in 'how to extract.', you need to replace bin/innounp.exe with the latest version, yours only supports versions up to 5.1.1. Innounp version 0.36 supports unpacking version 5.4.2 Inno Setup installers.
Worked for me.
