When browsing JPEG images with EXIF information, Gwenview automatically rotates them according to the EXIF Orientation tag.

It can show image properties and image specific meta-information like Dolphin does.

It knows about animated images like MNG or GIF and is also capable of displaying vector images in SVG format as well as playing videos.
Image manipulations

Gwenview does not try to replace your favorite image editor, so it only features simple image manipulations: rotation, mirroring, cropping, resizing and red eye reduction. When working with JPEG files, Gwenview performs lossless manipulations.
Browsing your collections of images

Gwenview features the necessary file management operations: copy, move, delete, rename and drag'n drop images. It has full support for KIO slaves: you can browse FTP/Windows shares, go into tar balls or zip files.
Presenting your images

The fullscreen with optional thumbnail bar and the simple built-in slide show allows you to present images the way you want them to show.
The interface

Gwenview features a browse mode to get a quick overview of images in a folder and a view mode to go through one image at a time. The view mode can also display a thumbnail bar. Visit the screenshot section to see what it looks like.

Gwenview can be used both as a standalone application and embedded in other KDE applications through the KPart system. For example, thanks to Gwenview image KPart, Konqueror can display images using Gwneview, letting you zoom in and out as well as rotate it.
