General

Videos

Check the Show videos checkbox to allow Gwenview to show videos among the images.

Background color

Move the slider to change the color of the gray background in Browse and View mode from black (the leftmost position) to white (the rightmost position).

JPEG save quality

JPEG save/compression quality setting, which can be temporarily overridden in the Save As dialog when saving a file as a JPEG. When saving an existing JPEG file with a new name or after performing a non-lossy edit (e.g. rotation, which only changes the EXIF rotation tag), the appearance of the file is not changed because no actual image manipulation is done.

Thumbnail actions

Whether the thumbnail action buttons should be shown as overlays above image thumbnails.

  • All buttons — Show all buttons

  • Show selection button only — Show select/unselect button only

  • None — Do not show any thumbnail button
