Image and Photo viewing software (Poll)


#1

By default in 18.04 we ship gthumb as our image and photoviewer.

We need feedback as to whether this should be replaced/supplemented by either Shotwell or GNOME Photos.

GNOME Photos we originally shipped in 16.04 & 17.04 but we dropped due to its Tracker dependencies. Tracker probably will be included in 18.10 due to Nautilus 3.30 changes - so GNOME Photos could be a viable choice again.

Shotwell we have not considered before - but development has restarted with some exciting new features.

So what do you think - what software (if any) should we ship for viewing images and photos?

  • Shotwell
  • GNOME Photos
  • gThumb
  • Other (tell us below)
  • None

Shotwell is a bad idea unless they fixed their photo import (and editing) and changed it to be non-destructive.


#3

Why is it destructive?
