Subject description: GPicView 0.1.11 in Puppy Linux 4.2.1 is wonderful!
 

GPicView 0.1.11 in Puppy Linux 4.2.1 is wonderful! It makes it so easy to start showing all the files in a directory as an automatic slideshow!! Just open one picture in GPicView, click on the triangle or type W, and a fully automatic slideshow starts, a new picture every 5 seconds!!! It is then easy to stop and start the slideshow, go forward and back as desired...

Even more incredibly wonderful, this simple little tool also includes a complete ability to handle the image orientation problem. If your pictures come up sideways, you can easily rotate them -- and your changes will be permanent in the picture file itself. The picture will display properly in the future. However, this feature is somewhat dangerous, perhaps too powerfully easy. Many users would not realize that every time they rotate the image they are making a permanent change in the file -- most programs that include this function just rotate the current view. We can hope/assume this rotation is lossless, but is the image data actually recomputed, or is just the EXIF orientation tag changed? (There does not seem to be a big change in the file size.) Also, when the file contents are updated by this program it seems to add thumbnail data to the file and change the last-modified date. Is there any documentation about this program anywhere?

Is there any way to change the 5-second delay in the slideshow? How, exactly? It would be nice if it were easy to do this while the program is running.

It includes a fullscreen mode, but it is a little quirky. The toolbar at the bottom stays. And it is unclear how to get out of fullscreen mode. It would be nice to be able to specify the background color, at least black/white.

There is a new version, GPicView 0.2.0 (2009-05-29). Is there a changelog? Any significant changes?
Would some kind soul please make this available for Puppy, and incorporate it in future versions?

A further improvement in ease of access to slideshows would be for GPicView to be able to directly access directories, and be integrated into the Puppy context menu for directories, instead of being forced to start with one picture file to access the slideshow function. And it would be great to be able to choose between a slideshow of just one level of the directory or to have it recurse the sub-sub-directories.

Bug reports: changing the screen mag setting during a slideshow only applies to the current image. There is a very nice Preferences sub-window with settings for the Slide Delay time and whether and how rotated images are saved. But this function is hidden as the last icon in the toolbar, and does not appear in the right-click list. Also, the bottom toolbar and the right-click list do not include an exit function. If the top bar disappears, which happened to me and may be intentional in fullscreen mode, there is no way to exit the program.

hi kethd,

the slideshow-function was added by our forum-member HairyWill. Unless the original author has picked up his code, gpicview will not have the slideshow-function you like so much.
