[New: openFATE 317229] Gthumb as default image viewer on opensuse13.1 Gnome
Feature added by: david grajales (Mirage)

Feature #317229, revision 1
Title: Gthumb as default image viewer on opensuse13.1 Gnome

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: david grajales (mirage)
Partner organization:

The current image viewer used is Shotwell but it has some lacks as 1) It does
not use Gnome's HIGs. breaks the visual consistency. 2) The way it organize and
classify the albums is not very well designed 3) there are some functionality
stuff missing or not well applied

the word here is "design" the app is not well designed.

Business case (Partner benefit): let's check out alternatives. The official Gome-photos app is
clean and beautiful but it feels kinda incomplete. it lacks in many image
editing features (at least I have not find those, anyone?) I like the KISS
approach but I think is desirable that the image viewer can do some basics
editing task (re-size, cut, ad text, etc if I must use apps such as inkscape to
make these basics, we have something going wrong here. this let us with Gtumb
as the only one well designed and with a consistency between current Gnome's
apps and HIGs and with the features required in any image viewer.

the current Gthumb branch (3.3) has more features than others, in a cleaner and
more organized interface. this is way I think we should use Gthumb instead of
shotwell for opensuse 13.2
