Photo is a simple, yet powerful and good looking image viewer, written in Qt, published as open-source, and completely free.

Photo comes with a variety of features. Most features you would expect from a image viewer should be there. It’s constantly being developed and improved.

The list below is meant to give you a rough idea of Photo’s abilities and is by far not an exhaustive list:

  • Support of all image formats supported by your Qt setup
  • Basic image manipulations (Rotating, Flipping, Zooming)
  • Basic File Management (Renaming, Deleting, Moving, Copying)
  • Keyboard and Mouse Shortcuts
  • Exif information
  • Highly Adjustable to your custom preference
  • Interface that doesn’t get into your way
