When I maximise an Image Viewer window, the picture stays the same size. In the view options none of them seem to make the image just fill the window.

I can zoom in but that is quite irritating as I have to compare several pictures in a folder and it forgets that I zoomed in when I return to a picture.

Is there anyway to change the default behaviour? Or perhaps there is a different program I should be using?

Note: This is for my work computer which will be sticking with 11.10 for at least another month, but any 12.04 specific advice would also be much appreciated.

You could always use feh instead. feh -ZXrF ./ results in a full screen image of all subfolders recursively and you can navigate with the arrow keys. Change to feh -ZXrFD 5 ./ to auto-advance after 5 seconds.

Just realised I can do full screen with Image Viewer which solves my problem, but I like your solution much better! –  Anake May 4 '12 at 11:51

So What you are asking for manipulating image ....like when you zoom it and save it , it should to saved as you have zoomed it .

If this is the case try out GIMP . A very good image editing tool . A new version is available also through PPA . You can find in the details in the link provided GIMP 2.8

Thanks for your response. But no I don't want to edit the image, I just want to be able to scan through pictures full screen quickly without having to change the zoom settings for each image –  Anake May 4 '12 at 11:41
    
SHOTWELL can make your thing half done but i don't think it will maintain the same zoom setting while traversing through images –  mViswa May 4 '12 at 11:49
