Recommended image viewer replacements ...?

Hi, everyone. Does anyone have any recommendations for replacement programs that can take the place of the default image viewer in Zorin OS? I don't like how I can't resize the window and have it stay the same size every time I open it.

It's annoying, to be honest. Is there something else that functions more like the image viewer on Linux Mint ("Pix" is what I think it's called)? That one remembers window size, and has an excellent overall browsing capability for images.

Thanks to whoever responds.


I found gThumb Image Viewer. Seems to be the closest thing I can find to Pix.

Checks off all the things I like to see in an image viewer, so OK. Problem solved.

But if anyone else has any recommendations still, feel free. I'm open. Thanks.

Another option to comes to mind is Ristretto, used in the XFCE desktop environment. I don't know if it will be able to do what you need but it's available in the software repositories so you can give it a quick try.

I took a quick look at the Software Center just now. I think gThumb will work.

Thank you, though! I appreciate the kindness this forum has to offer each other.

I've tried Ristretto elsewhere and there is just sonething about it I can't get on with it.

I don't usually pay too much attention to this type of things to be honest, but I wouldn't be surprised that being for XFCE is lacking on some features in favor of simplicity and performance.

Strangely, it is usually the other way around...

True that... I haven't had any complaints with XFCE as far as functionality goes, it seems to have everything.
