nomacs: beautiful app to view, edit images

GPicView is the viewer of my choice when it comes to images. However, I came across a strong contender today – nomacs. While GPicView has no image editing features as such, nomacs in its light bulk come with some useful editing features. And the transition effects, aesthetics and slideshow modes are incredibly beautiful. One more plus point for nomacs – advanced settings are hidden for regular users as long as they are not turned on. Features at a glance:

  • Supports the most common image formats including RAW
  • Fast thumbnail preview
  • Zoomable grid preview of thumbnails
  • Display EXIF information
  • Framless mode
  • Change transparency of windows
  • Display overview/histogram/file info
  • File filtering/searching/sorting
  • Improved anti-aliasing (cool for displaying highly textured images)
  • Sllideshow
  • Crop, resize, colour adjustment, rotate, create mosaic image
  • Viewer Synchronization
  • Supports Linux, Windows and Mac.

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nomacs/stable
