Imagine Comments

It is really fast

Comment by richen
about Imagine and IrfanView Aug 2011

I've ised IrfanView for a long time, but then I've tried Imagine — it's much faster, then IrfanView. Now I use Imagine as default image viewer and IrfanView — for cropping (it's more convenient and precise)
