Image Viewer and Browser for Unix/X11

Ximaging is a lightweight, multithreaded, open source image viewer for FreeBSD, Linux and other Unix like platforms running X11. The application can be run in viewer or browser mode. The viewer displays full size images and provides zooming, panning, rotation and other useful functions. The browser searches a directory for known image file types and displays them as thumbnails. Additionally both modes provide basic file management routines. A custom tool may be specified for opening selected files in another application for editing.

Most common raster image types are suppported directly, while filters (any program that can write PNM/PAM data to the stdout) may be used to add support for other kinds of image data.

The program is written in C, and uses the Motif widget toolkit. The source code may be modified and distributed under the terms of the X/MIT license.

See the included README file for build instructions. Everything is usually tested on FreeBSD and some sort of GNU/Linux. If you have a question that isn't answered in the manpage, feel free to contact me (Alex):

⇒ Git repository and release archives are also available on sourceforge and github. Note however that I'm not using these platforms for any purpose other than archiving.
