Useful free photo editor. I often use it for simple editing that I don't need to open up Photoshop for. But it could be a bit better.

Slow opening & High background resources. Just a Junk. Like annoying Cryptojacking.

The application has many features that will be enough for most people, but the huge disadvantage of this application is that it is too slow and resource-intensive. One word, bloatware.

Overall functionality of the app is pretty good for a photo viewer, you can even do some basic editing, but main application problem is performance, very slow opening of images, mistakes with metadata sometimes, and even hangs/freezes.
