    I want to say up front, you could not even consider me an amateur
    photographer. But I've encountered this problem more than once without a
    solution. I'm hoping someone here can offer me a solution.

    After I take some digital pictures, I usually view them via Windows Picture
    and Fax Viewer. I can zoom and recentering the picture to get it just
    right. But then how can I save it with those setting so that when it's
    brought up again, it will show already zoomed and centered the way I want?
    The zooming and recentering is always lost and I have to do it again. It
    there any easy way to save the zoom/centering settings? Perhaps some other
    software can do this?

    Thanks in advance,

    No, you would have to use something that saves the actual changed image.
    I like FastStone for quick edits, it's quite good, easy to use and free.
    Some people like Picasa, it's also free but I don't have any experience
    with it. There are some of other freebies including some that go a
    little further in editing power, but you will probably be able to do
    most of what you want with one of the two I named.

    Nikon ViewNX does work that way... you can even position other than
    center and scroll though images... this is nice for comparing matched
    shots for sharpness. It's a free download. I can't say I'd recommend it
    in general but that's a nice feature. All your images will have the same
    zoom and position, no program will save that individually except picassa
    where you would perform a crop & it saves that info without changing the
    file. Unless picassa has changed it has the strange behavior of sorting
    chronologically instead of by folder... which is very strange to me.
