Glance 0.1.0: new image viewer in town

GlanceThe last blog post is more than a month old – sorry that I have to dash your expectations that I blew my head off or something environmentally benign like that. I just went on producing Open Source stuff.

Gabi, my very adorable girl friend, switched over to Linux lately together with her mother. Both of them used to use Picasa on Windows to manage their bazillions of photos. The main reason was that Picasa displays *all* images of all folders known to it on a single page so the user is able to scroll through the complete galley at once without changing folders inbetween. I tried all image managing programs available in the Debian repository but unfortunately there is not a single image viewer which is able to display the whole collection at once. You know what’s next…

The result is Glance. By now it offers some rudimentary functionality:

  • Select a folder to display its and all of its subdirectories contents
  • Select images with the mouse, CTRL and Shift are working as expected
  • Select images beyond directory boundaries with Shift and CTRL
  • Three preview sizes available
  • Themes (two by now – light and dark)
  • Multi language (german and english by now)
  • Multi-threaded thumbnail generator using all of your computers cores
  • Open images in most of the image viewers and editors available
  • Batch-oriented file handling for all functions
  • Batch-renaming and copying  with expressions for string subtitution including date, time, counters, …
  • Graphical configuration dialog
  • Remembers settings like theme, size, folder, …
  • DEB/RPM/TAR available, DEB via repository

A early version of Glance will be available for testing in the wild in a couple of days when I added some more essential features like overwriting dialog (to keep users from destructing their collection) and a file/folder watchdog to keep track of changes in the file system immediately.

So – nothing *really* new, just another way to handle and display your image collection…
