    Does anyone have a painting/photo editing application that is very quick to start.

    When I have something that I want to edit real quick, I open it in mspaint. But mspaint is so basic.

    I'm looking for something that I can open in less than 3 seconds. Something really fast like that.

    I have Adobe's CS2 and Elements 2.0, but they just take so long to load up.

    Any recommendations?

    Click for more activation options, then activate by telephone. Run the keygen.
    if I call them, aren't they going to get me? (you know, down there)

    Paint.Net and don't forget optional plugins and extensions!

    Also try xnview the fastest launch I ever seen. From the 1st time I tried it, I assigned it to open all image files. Also it has some nice image editing features.

    online editor, with layers
    i counted 15 secs (depends on your web speed)

    you also have a tweak to speed up loading of photoshop, which removes tons of filters etc
