(an image viewer for digital camera users, by Jason Pepas)
Why write yet another image viewer for Linux? In short, the others are packed with too many features which get in the way.
Phiew is not designed to be a general purpose image viewer. It is designed to be a simple tool for digital camera users.
When using a digital camera, one often needs to accomplish the following tasks:
Phiew aims to be the simplest possible tool to accomplish the above tasks. It does not aim to be a general purpose image viewer.
- Review a "roll" of pictures downloaded from your camera. That is, be able to easily cycle through all pictures in a directory, preferrably scaled fullscreen.
- Rotate pictures in 90 degree increments, preferrably losslessly.
- Delete poor pictures.

Phiew uses the SDL.
This means that though I am developing it on Linux, it should compile on many platforms
(though I have not yet gotten cross-compilation working under linux yet).
The Phiew source code is released under the GPL.
Phiew is nearly feature complete (haven't implemented delete yet), and should be considered beta software.
To compile Phiew, you will need the SDL, SDL_Image, and SDL_gfx development and runtime libraries installed. Debian users apt-get install libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-gfx1.2-dev.
You will also need the jpegtran binary installed. Debian users apt-get install libjpeg-progs.
