Apowersoft Photo Viewer

Synopsis: photo viewer and basic editor with some nice extras not found elsewhere, but some obvious misses as well.

Neat stuff:

* Lots of options for numbered items 123, ABC, abc, rounded, circle, and various transparency levels (this is really great)
* Highlighter pen

Missing bits:

* Speed bubble doesn't automatically include a text prompt (have to add it separately)
* CTRL+Z to undo
* Easy upload to image hosting services like Imgur
* Batch operations
* Image editor is really just an addendum tool for screenshots, which makes sense as the same company sells a program called Screen Capture Pro

Status: not at all portable. Writes settings all over the place, automatically sets itself as the default graphics viewer.

lol ... yeah if I had more free time I'd have a testing rig setup with Sandboxie or similar program to auto-dump all changes on program exit. As it stands, I have to do a lot of manual cleanup and I cycle out my Windows install ~1 / yr.
