    Linux Image Viewing / Editing Apps


    Apologies if this is in the wrong forum - but although I am really happy with my recent changeover from Windoze to Debian Linux - one app that I REALLY miiss is compupic 6.1. This app is a basic image viewer with basic editing functions (contrast, shapness filters etc...) BUT the really cool feature it had was on-the-fly viewing of images in an archive (ZIP, TZ etc..).

    I have been unable to find a linux app which has these functions (I tried compupic 5.1 for Linux but got a segmentation fault). The killer feature I really need is the ability to browse images in archived files without unpacking them first.

    Does anyone know of a linux app which will do this??

    I'm pretty sure a combination of Konqueror and Kwikview (sp?) will do what you need it to.

    Konqueror can browse zip files without unpacking them, and Kwikview has the features you need.

    Gwenview can go into zip files and tar balls. It's a native KDE application, so it's a natural choice if you use KDE.

    In my opinion, it's a highly dubious feature, because image files are already compressed. People who keep image archives in zip files should be smacked upside the head.

    What about bitmaps, Isaac?
    The GIMP can open & save Bzip and Gzip image archives, but it won't be "on the fly" like Konquerer.
