from screenshot I want to cut only part that is important. I do know I can do it using GIMP, but GIMP is very slow too start. Is there any default image application that can do it faster?

To crop images with Shotwell (the default picture viewer) just open the image and choose "Crop" from the "Photo -> Tools" menu. This will give you a highlighted frame you can drag with your mouse.

Pinta also supports it – UAdapter Oct 18 '11 at 8:36

You can use Shotwell which comes installed by default. just right click an image and select Open With from the context meny and then select Shotwell. Shotwell comes with a CROP feature so you can select which part of the image you want.
