Em comparação com xviewer e o pix, eu prefiro muito esse aplicativo! o gthumb realmente poderia se tornar padrão no linux mint, vamos pensar nisso?

This supposed to be the default gallery application for Mint Cinnamon. It's very similar to Pix, with some improvements, mainly a better support for touchpad scrolling.

Cinammon 21, Gthumb 3.12.0 - Nearly perfect now the mousewheel can be configured for zoom. I'd like themes, the left sidebar to be configurable and an option to ask with to close the app as I often close meaning to go back to the browser but those are minor issues compared to the excellent (for me) functionality.

gThumb is excellent for browsing, viewing, and editing images. There are a few things that I don't like like not being able to zoom on images using the scrollwheel, or not being able to use the arrow keys to navigate across images displayed in the side pane when an image is displayed in the main pane, but those might be able to be fixed with some custom programming. It has lots of keyboard shortcuts, features, and extensions, and overall, it just works. My favorite image viewer.

I like the software especially for opening cr2 files. it is one of the only viewers that can do that, but it does it a little slowly. i noticed that it is pinned on one thread and the others lay mainly idle, so i would love for it to be updated to multithread.

opens everything instantly. Currently the only program in Mint 19.3 to open Webp images. I HATE the interface however. I will never agree to hiding the menu bar for desktop apps, (and with no options to bring it back). Even more importantly I will never get used to the fact that scrolling the mouse will cycle images. SCROLLING SHOULD ZOOM OR PAN THE IMAGE, not cycle through images. Scroll the mouse wheel, and you're 15 images away from what you were viewing. An inexplicable developer choice that persists through the years. 3 because of that

Steady honest software with useful tools. Gwenview no longer exports to html but Gthumb tools include export to Web Album.

Used to be great, intuitively easy to use and now they messed up. Presentation configuration difficult to navigate. Controls hard to find. The resize feature is confusing to a novice.

I am a novice when it comes to Linux. I have recently migrated from windows to linux. And I must say that I am loving it. Gthumb is one of the best apps I have ever come across. Simple to use, Glitch-free and does the job well.

All you need to view and convert WebP files in Linux.

handy & fast -- this is what you need... what I need, if it had nondestructive editing, as Canon's DPP, it would be perfect...

what I miss is the arrows during when viewing an image, I would expect left and right arrows to bring the next / previous image...

CTRL+P for properties would be also cool...

but in any case, scrolling and viewing, and rotating is the basic functionality that we NEED so badly :)
and GThumb just has it!

this is apparently a very good project, very promising, lots of potentials for further development, but this fast and simple use is the greatest virtue of it, hope it will remein like this for ever :)
(darktable, a different functionality, for example, is extremely bad at browsing...)

I use it mostly for importing photos from camera, and checking photo information, details. For this use it is great for me! I know it has many other functions too but haven't got habbit to use them – yet!

It's working very fine in Mint 18. This is a perfect tool for an easy image edition.
