Ubuntu :: Default Image Viewer Failed But GIMP Fine
Mar 19, 2011
The default image viewer in 10.10 (eog) has met its match, a ~500MB image of the moon. I just thought it was kind of funny, while browsing the software center for an image viewer that could handle it, I noticed the description of the one installed by default and thought it was kind of funny, so I snapped this screenshot and thought I'd share it with you guys. By the way I have 4 GB of RAM and can view the image just fine in GIMP, just thought this was kind of funny.
Iam looking for an Image viewer that lets me delete images through an 'delete' button/option in toolbox.. Most of the image viewers uses edit menu-->delete option,but iam looking for an direct link,clicking on which deletes the image currently open in image viewer ???
I've read about and taken brief looks at F-Spot, Gthumb, GQView, KphotoAlbum, and digiKam. Why is it so hard to find an app that edits IPTC? I think digiKam is supposed to, but 1) I was hoping not to have to run a KDE app on Gnome and 2) I can't even figure out how to use the darn thing ... it seems very unintuitive to me.
I miss Irfanview so much. (and no, I don't want to run WINE. I don't know why so many people are quick to suggest running Windows apps in WINE. If i wanted to run Windows apps, I'd run stinkin' Windows.)
It's one of those weeks for me when I feel like the more I actually try to USE Ubuntu for getting things done (as a long time Windows user), the more my hands are tied. I mean crap... MediaMonkey, Irfanview, ... ugh. Computers are for accomplishing tasks. Apps are for doing those tasks. OSes are for running those apps. I used to be a diehard OS/2 fan back in the day until I finally gave in to Windows. I still knew OS/2 was way superior, but what's the use in running a "superior" OS if you don't have the apps with features you need? I'm not trying to start a fight here and I hope I don't get slammed for my little venting here, but honestly...
I've tried what feels like at least a dozen different image viewers and I'm still hunting for one that handles viewing by date taken. The trick is that I'd like to just click the jpeg as they come off the camera and then browse through all the photos in the order taken... without having to load them into a photo management application, sort them in their, then start viewing from there. Too many extra steps for too many pictures when you're looking at a collection that is already organized (using the file system, i.e., nested directories) back to 2000. I need (ideally) a viewer where I click the jpeg, then go next next next through them in the order in which they were taken. Does anyone know if this sort of thing exists?
I would like to display a fully opaque image (e.g. PNG RGB8) on the desktop in an image viewer - but such that I can set the window (showing the image) to be, say, 50% transparent (so I could see through and compare with other windows below). It would be even better if the viewer just shows a "panel" instead of a "window" (i.e. I'd prefer just the image shown, possibly with a border - instead of a full blown window with menubar, titlebar etc).
I'm aware that in Compiz, it should be possible to run a plugin, and have any window you want transparent - but I was hoping for a solution (viewer) that would not be Compiz-specific (and even more preferred, if it is neither Gnome nor KDE specific - but I'm not sure that is possible).
Whenever I want to look at an image on the command line I use Kview, but what I want to use is the standard one you get when you click on an image file in windows mode. For me it's called visionneur d'image cos I'm using linux at my university in France.
I want to know if there is any application from which I can view/convert the JBG Images to any other format. I have installed XnView and Image Magick. XnView does no support the JBG Images and Image Magick gives error while converting the image.
I can't figure out how to set Okular to be the default PDF viewer.Using Ubuntu 10.04. And it keeps using evince to open PDF files even after I changed it. See the attached picture for what I've already done.
I have four smaller jpg files, that I would like to merge into one file. Each image is similar in size, and they are color images. The only way I could get close is by creating multi-layered composites, which got really big. The only other way I could think of doing it is with OO, creating a presentation slide, and then rendering that slide.
I'm not a Script-fu expert but I did manage to get a Script-fu script to at least not throw up any errors. However, it also doesn't work. I've written a bash script to use gphoto2 and imagemagick to snap a picture, download, rotate and crop it ready for print. I'd like to automate the final step and have The GIMP or some other program print it.
My script-fu script is: (define (printshot filename) (let* ((image (car(gimp-file-load RUN-NONINTERACTIVE filename filename))) (gimp-print-gtk RUN-NONINTERACTIVE image) (gimp-image-delete image))) )
and my bash script to call it is: gimp -i -b '(printshot $1)' -b '(gimp-quit)' I know it's executing the script-fu script because I have received error messages when I do something invalid in it. However, I don't get any output. I get the same thing when I run it from the Script-fu console. It seems to execute but doesn't print anything.
I'm trying to make buttons for a webpage - each button has a "graphic" part - say an oval with a drop shadow, and text on top of that, such as "About Us", "Contact Us" etc. I'd like the text to line up horizontally against one another, so that if the buttons are placed next to one another in a straight line across the page, the texts line up with one another. How do I do this in GIMP?Common sense suggests that the "Align" tool should be what I should be using, but how do I use it?
I want to make an 8-bit looking image that has very large pixels. My solution was to make a 50x50 image, zoom in, draw it with the 1x1 pixel pencil tool, and then scale it to whatever size i want.Everything went well except, when i try to scale it the anti-aliasing kicks in and blurs everything. Is there a way that i can disable anti-aliasing?
I have a doubt about the Gnome default Image Viewer.It's because I edit my RAW images on RawTherapee, and then export them to jpg.When I open the exported pictures on the image viewer, it looks like has lots of noise.But when I open the same picture on Gimp or Iceweasel, the noises doen't appear.
So, the question is: which image viewer is wrong? Is Gimp and Iceweasel "fixing" the picture automatically, or Gnome Image Viewer is reading it wrongly and showing it with noise?URL...
I've noticed in Gnome pretty much all applications auto-rotate images when viewing, but leave the original image data intact. This may sound silly, but when I want to post pictures on, for instance, Facebook they upload as the picture was originally taken. So, if I took a picture with the camera flipped sideways it appears upright in Nautilus and the two image viewers I have installed, but when I upload the picture it appears to be flipped on its side. Does anyone know how to disable the auto-rotate when viewing feature?
The viewer should have a button that if clicked, would then convert the file to a TIFF, again using dcraw. That's it, that's all there is to it. My initial impression is that I should be able to achieve this using Python and GTK widgets. Am I right? How can I find the commands and structures I will need to work with?
There's something very annoying about how Nautilus opens "image viewer" windows. They open, I can see them, but when I press the keyboard, it's still Nautilus which gets the commands. This is because Nautilus stays the active window!
Most annoyingly, when I want to have a quick look at an image, and then close it, Nautilus closes instead (Alt+F4).
Does anyone know what I'm talking about? How to solve it?
When I am deleting pictures using gThumb image viewer it asks "The selected images will be moved to Trash, are you sure?" And if I press "yes" button - it moves message to ~/.Trash, can it be configured to move them into "real" trash? I have created symbolic link and it solved part of my problems, but files "restore" option is unavailable to files which were moved in to trash by this method.
Whenever I try to open a folder or some other location on disk through any program, I get the Remote Desktop Viewer. For example, if I go to Places --> Home Folder, the RDV opens up and says "the connection to /home/<me>" is closed. It's very odd. I get the same behavior in Chromium if I select "Show in Folder" for a download.
If I go to the terminal and type 'xdg-open ~' or 'gnome-open ~' I also get the Remote Desktop Viewer, just like I do when I select home from the Places menu.
I have a large image that I want to print over 4 pages, each page showing 1/4 of the overall image, that I will past together. I'm doing this from GIMP on an up-to-date fc12 system. Searching around I find that there is a "scale" field in the print dialog and the lp command that cups supports and according to the documentation if I set scale to "200%" it should do what I want.However, when I set scale to 200% I get only one page with the upper left 1/4 of the page and then nothing. How do I get it to print the remaining 3 pages?
I want a simple short gimp batch script that will take one image, paste it into a predetermined layer on another image, export as png and discard changes. Unfortunately, I can't find any tutorials on using gimp batch. Anyone know any such tutorials (Or better yet, what my script needs to be)
So far this is what I have. I need a way to loop through the layers to check the name of them, I also need a way to ditch the previously opened files from memory (Otherwise gimp still has both images in memory) (I'm going to mark this solved so I can make a cleaner post once I get it together)
