Nice, this free image viewer is pretty darn good too! It's generally a well thought out application with large and good JPEG previews when saving, many options for cropping with e.g. custom or factory default aspect ratios, and so on, and also some rather unique features for free viewers like the image comparison. I like its full screen view too with panels popping up as you mouse to the borders. ;)

I personally like it better than IrfanView, and it also emulates the old ACDSee keyboard shortcuts that I've grown used to well.
