Gthumb, Image Viewer and Editor for Gnome
Gthumb is my favorite image viewer and editor. When I open an image from nautilus, I open this image using Gthum, not Eye of Gnome (built in image viewer on Gnome). I can edit the image using Gthumb, for example crop, increase the contrast or brightness, resize etc. No need to open another image editor like Gimp. I think Gimp is good, but there are too many tools if I just need to resize an image. It is more simple using Gthumb.
If you’re using Ubuntu, you can install this nice tool from Synaptic. Just search Ghumb, mark install, and click Apply. And you can start browsing you image/picture in your laptop, double click to view in viewer mode. To return to browser mode, just click close.
Here are the features of Gthumb :
- View single images (including GIF animations). Supported image types are: BMP, JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, ICO, XPM.
