xzgv is a keyboard-controllable fast picture viewer. It's thumbnail-based file selector can rename, copy and move images, rotate by multiples of 90 degrees and mirror them. Displayed images can have their zoom, contrast, brightness and gamma adjusted.
Most file formats are supported, and the thumbnails used are compatible with xv, zgv, and the Gimp. It can also be used with `xzgv file(s)', to effectively bypass the file selector. For more on how xzgv works and how to use it, do `info xzgv' or `man xzgv' once it's installed.
xzgv differs from other picture viewers for X in that it uses one window for both the file selector and viewer, it (unlike xv) allows both scrolling and fit-to-window methods of viewing large pictures, and it (unlike xv and some others) doesn't ever mangle the picture's aspect ratio without you telling it to.
It also provides extensive keyboard support; if you prefer using the keyboard, this is probably the best viewer for you. But it doesn't skimp on the mousey stuff, either.
What's New in This Release:
· This release updates xzgv to GTK 2.0.
· Some functionality has been lost in the process, principally the ability to change the brightness, contrast and gamma of viewed pictures.
