shufti - the persistent image viewer 1.0

shufti is a lightweight, PyQt5-based image viewer. It automatically saves and restores the zoom level, rotation, window size, desktop location and the scrollbar positions (ie viewing area) for every image it loads, on a per-image/location basis. It supports viewing .jpg, .png, .gif and .bmp files, amongst others. shufti has no GUI (as in icons or menus) and that is by design. It aims to be efficient and lightweight - it will never edit images, play videos or do you a brew. Its complete and uncompressed source code is little more than 7KB. Due to its nature, shufti will only be of use if you maintain the same display configuration ie screen / desktop config and resolution(s). shufti is free and open source software licensed under the latest GNU Affero GPL license and should run on any platform that can run PyQt - that includes GNU/Linux, *BSD, macOS and Windows.

Recent Releases

1.025 Feb 2017 12:06 major feature: Happy 1.0 to shufti! Today sees the first proper release of my free, open source and cross-platform "persistent" image viewer, shufti. So far, I have only created a 64-bit Windows installer. It should work under Windows Vista/7/8/10 64-bit but I've only tried it under Windows 10 64-bit. Linux and BSD users can follow the existing, easy installation instructions. Please let me know if you try it and remember to mention the version/family of OS you're running - thanks!
