But for some reason, still the interface when comparing with others such as gThumb or F-Spot for example is not that user-friendly (at least for my taste anyway) but if you're just bored with the same GUI over and over again and for a change looking for "something", well then, Geeqie is certainly not a bad choice at all.
*. Supports almost all the image file types under the sun :).
*. Filter out certain file types.
*. Zoom-in or out (switch between different resizing methods from low quality to high).
*. Edit image meta data.
*. Colour management.
*. Delete/copy/move files.
|Preference window which lets you configure a lot of things...|
*. Edit images with already installed software in your GNU/Linux distributions (via its "plug-in" API).
*. Delete, change size, create new or change the default directory where thumbnails are stored.
*. Comes with a "set as wallpaper" feature, but it did not work while I was playing with it :/.
*. Change file associations.
*. Change image loading cache file size.
*. View images as slide-shows.
*. Hide the toolbar and make the "side-bar" and the image viewer separate (shown below).
*. Enable/disable image pixel info display (you know, it displays the pixel "locations" when you move your mouse hover over pictures).
*. Assign keyboard shortcuts for easy manoeuvrability.
These are just a few to mention. You can install Geeqie in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal by entering the below command in your GNU/Linux terminal.
sudo apt-get install geeqieWith all the due respect for the developers for their hard work... but I don't think I'll be using Geeqie as my primarily image editor (it just doesn't suit my taste + I think if you have a huge collection to manage, it can be a bit frustrating with it as well).
But it's very popular and a highly recommended (starred app in Ubuntu Software Center) utility nonetheless.
