I don't really use an image editor, but SnagIt which I use for screen captures has basic image editing operations. I also use IrfanView which also has basic editing functionality.

Gimp Totally XD

Easily Customizable, i thinks its open source, A free powerful tool  ;) And its quick unlike Photoshop.

Except it has a long loadup if you add to many stuff to it. I had 4000+ once

I have been using  Photo Impact for years, but haven't updated it since X3 came out as it was sold to Corel, and of course it isn't free.  It has plenty of filters and I have added a lot of free ones. It is my image editor of choice.  Photoshop is too complicated and certainly too expensive.  I originally used Paint shop Pro and liked that too, but again it isn't free.
I have heard good things about GIMP too, and the online Pixlr looks interesting Polonus.

What do people mean when they say they have a portable program? Is it smaller, less files  ???

I mean, run from a portable device (memory stick etc.)
It is installed on the memory stick so it can be used on any computer without installing.

Have a look at this:

What is a portable app?

This is where I get most of my apps ;)

Another vote against paint.net and not one of functionality, it requires that you have .net framework installed and that is a monster in its own right.

means it can be run on a portable media (like USB key...), with no install needed; so no track on the hard disk, and no track in the registry...if you're careful. Also useful if you use friend's computers, you can run some apps without installing anything and/or bugging your friends  ;D

image editing, not often needed here, but when needed, I use GIMP. It's cool, powerful, and free. To be honest, if I was into serious image editing, I'd buy Photoshop, GIMP can't compare to it, but I'm thankful it exists for the rare times I need to edit a pic.

On contrary, I have .Net as other applications need it to run and it's there anyway, no problems with disk space.
I use Paint.Net with happiness.
