The Faststone Image Viewer is a very versatile application.  It has a similar appearance to Widows Explorer, but also has some editing capabilities - resizing, cropping and cloning to mention just a few.  It is also very customisable and has a great slide show built-in.  Best of all is that it is free!  You will see an invitation to donate, but you don't have to.  However if you do donate you get a key and then the pop-up will not appear.  N.B. This is for Windows PCs only.
