GPicView is a simple and fast image viewer with low memory usage.

This little program is not aimed to be powerful or feature-rich. It's aimed to replace the default image viewer of current desktop systems. Fast-startup, low memory usage, and simple user interface make it a good choice for default viewer.

The program is inspired by the defualt image viewer of Windows xp and another GTK+ 2 image viewer - gimmage. Although looked quite similar to gimmage, GPicView has much lower memory usage and doesn't require libraries other than gtk+ 2. Even libstdc++ was not used.

Main features:

  • Extremely lightweight and fast with low memory usage
  • Very suitable for default image viewer of desktop system
  • Simple and intuitive interface
  • Minimal lib dependency: Only pure GTK+ is used
  • Desktop independent: Doesn't require any specific desktop environment
  • Open source, licensed under GNU GPL
