This is the worst image browser I have found. I was attempting to find something for my mother to use with her digital camera--I can safely say this program is the opposite of everything for which I was looking. To wit, it is difficult to use, hard to explain, completely counter-intuitive, slow, processor intensive... I could go on. Avoid this program.

The way this program behaves seems counter-intuitive. Are there menus or controls that I can somehow bring into view? Docs don't make it clear exactly *which* features are disabled until the shareware fee is paid. Overall, I found this item to be puzzling.
