I have gimp open, and I'm working on a drawing. I also keep faststone image viewer (http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm) running, *snip*

Hmm quick question RobA, I use xnview (http://pagesperso-orange.fr/pierre.g/xnview/enscreenshots.html) as my image viewer for that... ever heard of it? Or should I consider using Faststone?

XNViewer is cross platform, so if that matters to you....

The seem very comparable. The only additional feature that I believe Faststone has is the "draw board" where you can annotate, draw lines, circles, squares, etc. Also the screen capture is very powerful... window, window object, full screen, rectangular, or arbitrary polygon.

I tend to use the screen capture - crop - annotate - save workflow when making tutorials pretty much completely within faststone... so it works for me :)

It is also (as is vnview) free for non-commercial use.
