Fotografix: Edit On The Go With This Portable & Lightweight Photo Editor [Windows]

Typically a program should be practical and useful, lightweight – even portable, feature-packed, and to top it all off, free. Fotografix is all of those and that is why it landed a spot in the Image Editors and Viewers category on our Best Of Portable Apps page.
