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 will eventually be replaced by a combination of Sushi and GNOME Photos.[2]
