This is Viewnior, an image viewer program. Created to be simple, fast and elegant. It's minimalistic interface provides more screenspace for your images. Among its features are:

  • Fullscreen & Slideshow
  • Rotate, flip, crop, save, delete images
  • Animation support
  • Browse only selected images
  • Navigation window
  • Set image as wallpaper (Gnome 2, Gnome 3, XFCE, LXDE, FluxBox, Nitrogen)
  • EXIF and IPTC metadata
  • Simple interface
  • Configurable mouse actions

Viewnior is insipred by big projects like Eye of Gnome, because of it's usability and richness,and by GPicView, because of it's lightweight design and minimal interface. So here comes Viewnior - small and light, with no compromise with the quality of it's functions. The program is made with better integration in mind (follows Gnome HIG2)

Viewnior is written in C (GTK+) and uses modified version of the GtkImageView library by Bjourn Lindqvist. Without it, image viewing wouldn't be such a pleasure. :)

Viewnior is licensed under the terms of the GPLv3.

To do

I would like Viewnior to:

  • Migrate to GTK+3
  • Automatically update the folder contents
  • Drag images out of Viewnior

If you can/want to help, first contact me, because I'm already working on some of this features. For more information, browse the git repo.

All things marked as "ready for the next release" are available in the master branch in the git repo. Can't wait? Download the code from there (might be unstable!).
