Phototonic - Image viewer and organizer

Re: Phototonic - Image viewer and organizer

I like it so far, I find phototonic simple and efficient. Is there a way to customize the keyboard shortcuts?
Thank you for sharing!

Re: Phototonic - Image viewer and organizer

@skualito: Thanks.
Currently not (only by recompiling).
I guess customizing the shortcuts is inevitable, Opened a new issue: https://github.com/oferkv/phototonic/issues/22

Re: Phototonic - Image viewer and organizer

Already does quite a lot in a tiny package!
Other features I'd look for: zoom to original size; and in context menu: show image information; 'open with ...' (associated with MIME-type and/or customisable?)
Will watch its development with interest ... many thanks for making it available.

How does your Phototonic compare to Shotwell?

Re: Phototonic - Image viewer and organizer

@ninian: Thanks!
"Zoom to original" option already there, "image info" an existing issue, opened a new issue for "open with".

@orschiro: I am not too familiar with Shotwell.

Re: Phototonic - Image viewer and organizer

@ninian FYI Added a basic "Open With" option. Also now image info is displayed in the status bar when selecting a thumb.

Ah, thank you! Will look forward to testing it out when I get back to my Arch system tomorrow.

Very nice and lightweight tool!
Any chance of EXIF parsing/display?

Re: Phototonic - Image viewer and organizer

Thanks nojan smile
I am opening an issue for EXIF support. This is mostly for displaying image information (that was embedded in the image during taking the shot by the camera), and also rotating the image automatically yes?
Phototonic will have to include an additional lib to support this (not supported by Qt by default).
I am not sure if this means crossing the line between "light" and "not so light"... What do others think about this?

libexif is about 2MB, exiv2 about 4MB (supports iptc, too) Then you have three options to include it.
1) create a plugin interface and use a plugin , then using libexif as optdepend is possible
2a) simply hardcode it
2b) hardcode it, but make it a compile-time switch with defines.

That is precisely what I meant smile The photographer in me likes to be able to check things aperture and shutter when browsing images. Automagic rotation is of course nice to.

My vote is on a compile time switch to make it optional in a clean, uncluttered way.

Re: Phototonic - Image viewer and organizer

Thanks guys, this is helpful. I think I will go with the smaller lib or which ever is more common. As for implementation, something like "View->show EXIF info" that will show a panel with all relevant data and switches.

Re: Phototonic - Image viewer and organizer

Hello,

thank you for this interesting project! I'm interested in an image viewer
and organizer which is independend of a desktop environment. Unfortunately
I have a lot of pictures in cr2 format. Any chance to have support for that format ?

Re: Phototonic - Image viewer and organizer

Thank you very much! I'll wait until the raw format will be supported. After that I'll consider to use Phototonic.
I'm eager to test it!

Re: Phototonic - Image viewer and organizer

Good news everyone! v0.99 is released.
Note that Exiv2 is now a dependency (This is a must, in order to retain image metadata when editing and saving images).

V0.99 highlights:
Exif support (with automatic image rotation option).
File name filtering option.
Images can now be rotated freely to any angle.
New Image and Copy and Paste image data options.
File system tree and Image Info panes can be removed or docked.
Other bug fixes...
