If you’re looking for a free (non-commercial use), reliable, small-sized and easy-to-use software to do simple things like changing colour hues, image resizing, viewing of graphic formats, capturing screenshots… (basically some simple graphic editing, short of drawing)… then try this freeware called IrfanView:
IrfanView is a very fast, small, compact and innovative FREEWARE (for non-commercial use) graphic viewer for Windows 9x/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003.

Actually IrfanView isn’t new to me. I’ve been using a version from Windows NT days (yup, that long ago!) which still works for Windows XP. But thanks to Sabina from BotanicalArts for the heads-ups, I rediscovered the website and downloaded the latest version. It has some additional features since the NT version and overall improvements to usability. Very nice handy tool to have for simple editing
