maxibuntu: I don't quite understand what you mean by "thumbnail size". If you are referring to Thunar's "View as Icons" option then you can use Ctrl-mousewheel to make the icon larger or smaller. These zoom options are also available under the Thunar > View menu.

maxibuntu: I don't know any way of increasing the icon size in Thunar.

However, the Shotwell photo manager is installed by default on SolydX and should do what you want.

maxibuntu: Have you tried Mirage - a lightweight gtk viewer/editor that can rename files dynamically?
Mirage is ideal for users who wish to keep their computers lean while still having a clean image viewer.

Features:
* Supports png, jpg, svg, xpm, gif, bmp, tiff, and others
* Preloading to navigate faster through images (optional)
* Thumbnail pane for quick navigation
* Slideshow and fullscreen mode
* Rotating, zooming, flipping, resizing, and cropping
* Custom user actions
* Screenshot

Code: Select all

sudo apt install mirage
Note: Mirage fits well with SolydX unlike gwenview which pulls in much of KDE as dependent packages.

I can do this with gwenview too, but I'd rather not have an extra application installed just to sort pictures.
Go to Menu-->View-->Zoom In

May the Source be with you.

maxibuntu: Fotoxx might do what you want as it has "Thumbnail browser and navigator, variable thumbnail size or list view."
Fotoxx is a free Linux program for editing photos or other images and managing a large collection.
Images can be viewed in scrollable pages of thumbnails (variable size) or singly in a large window.
See this video for further details: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utuspbONvMY

Code: Select all

sudo apt install fotoxx
Caveat... I haven't installed this myself so cannot comment on its functionality. However, it doesn't want to pull in too many dependencies on my SolydX system.

I'm glad that you are happy with Gwenview. Obviously, you are not as fussy as I am about all the bloat resulting from installing packages intended for different DE's. ;-)
