FreeVimager - Image Viewer and Editor

This is a Free & Fast Image Viewer and Editor for Windows. It can as well play avi video files, ordinary audio files and audio CDs. There are many tools around doing that, but the aim of this Freeware is to be a small and handy tool doing what it says and running also as a standalone exe file (installer not necessary).
