Eye of GNOME is the official image viewer for the GNOME desktop environment. Unlike some other image viewers, Image Viewer will only display images. It does, however, provide basic effects for improved viewing, such as zooming, full-screen, rotation, and transparent image background control.
Image Viewer 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)
Image Viewer also supports the viewing of the Exif/XMP metadata associated with an image.
Also, it 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.
