"Great program for basic image manipulation"
Love the shift+ctrl+v function to paste copied image into current image, how the image shows up and then you can move it around to place it in the correct spot. Best slide show I've found. Best image resizing I've found.
Could have a better interface for stepping through images in a directory. I think the way to do it is shift+page up/down, but it'd be nice, for those less technically inclined, to have some sort of arrow buttons to click on like the Windows Image Preview thing, and/or to let the arrow keys do it. I use IrfanView for this, just because you can use the arrow keys with that.
It's the only image program I know of that has a slide show feature that can work with a given directory (or set of directories), and if you add images to the directory while the slide show is playing, those images will be displayed in the slide show. Slide show functions on other programs I've used do this stupid initialization thing where all the images get added to some database before the show begins. Pretty ridiculous, when it could simply look at the directory as it goes, like Polyview does.
