    I need a free third party photo viewer and editor that works well in XP. Some photos have too much red and some others are slightly blurred.

    Paint.net works well, its like a simplified version of Gimp or Photoshop.I have tried both of these & much prefer Paint.net.
    Oh yes, its free, they ask for a donation at/after install, but only the one time. All screenshots I have ever posted were via Paint.net. I love it!

    The last version that works with XP (32&64) is:

    https://www.oldapps.com/paint_net.php?old_apps=12794

    You will need at least Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1*(?) which is this version:

    You might have to turn off your firewall temporarily

    As I recall, I installed first the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1, & then ran the extracted

    "Paint.NET.3.5.11.Install.exe" from the zip file. Dont try to get it from

    https://www.getpaint.net/

    They only have newest version, I registered at their forum, theres a lotta good info to be had there.

    I use Smoothview now, and FastStone Image Viewer before:

    https://en.freedownloadmanager.org/Windows-PC/SmoothView-FREE.html
    https://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm

    Note that I got SmoothView from photo-freeware.net, which appears dead. According to mywot.com, freedownloadmanager.org is safe, but I have no experience with that source. Other apps are below.
