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

Uncheck the Automatically play checkbox to disable autoplaying videos. This prevents video from automatically starting when browsing.

Notify after reaching the last image

Select the Never item to allow Gwenview looping through the list of images without additional notifications.

Select the Only during slideshows item if notifications about reaching the list end should be shown only in the slideshow mode.

Select the Always item if you want to receive the notifications unconditionally.

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).

Fullscreen background
  • Black — Set the background color in fullscreen mode to black.

  • Dark gray texture — Set the background in fullscreen mode to a dark gray texture.

Lossy image save quality

Save/compression quality setting for lossy image formats like JPEG, WEBP, AVIF, HEIF, and HEIC, which can be temporarily overridden in the Save As dialog when saving a file in a lossy image format. When saving an existing lossy image 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
