"Does 95% of what you need to do with images"
Performs batch operations (rename, resize, etc.). Simple cropping, you can play with color balance or edit the palette for images using one (e.g. GIF). Add text or simple graphics to images (arrows, ellipses, and boxes). Nice slideshow mode.
No white balance tool. You're forced to play around with Red, Green, Blue sliders if you need to fix an image where the camera guessed wrong about white balance.
Great tool for image manipulation.
