Eye of GNOME is the official image viewer for the GNOME desktop environment, where it is also known as Image Viewer. Unlike some other image viewers, Eye of GNOME will only display images. It does, however, provide basic effects for improved viewing, such as zooming, full-screen, rotation, and transparent image background control.
Eye of GNOME supports the following file formats:
- ANI – Animation
- BMP – Windows Bitmap
- Graphics Interchange Format (GIF)
- ICO – Windows Icon
- JPEG – Joint Photographic Experts Group
- PCX – PC Paintbrush
- Portable Network Graphics (PNG)
- PNM – Portable Anymap from the PPM Toolkit
- RAS – Sun Raster
- Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)
- TGA – Targa
- Tagged Image File Format (TIFF)
- Wireless Application Protocol Bitmap Format (WBMP)
- X BitMap (XBM)
- X PixMap (XPM)
Eye of GNOME also supports the viewing of the Exif/XMP metadata associated with an image.
Also, Eye of GNOME is used to render SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) as a rasterized bitmap by default. This bitmap then gets manipulated when scaling the image, resulting in pixelation when zooming in. However, this is fixed since version 2.31.1.
