Does anyone know an app that allows to get an overview about all pictures of a folder, including all subfolders?

I would like to browse through my filesystem and then have an overview of all pictures of the current folder, like Adobe Bridge (on a Mac).

Shotwell Photo Manager

shotwell

Shotwell is a digital photo organizer designed for the GNOME desktop environment. It allows you to import photos from disk or camera, organize them in various ways, view them in full-window or fullscreen mode, and export them to share with others.

Install via the software center

It is installed by default. Import your main folder (and all sub folders automatically) via FileImport from Folder. I also suggest to check "Watch library directory for new files" in EditPreferencesLibrary.

thanks, but i don't want to import the pictures. I would like to browse through my filesystem and then have an overview of all pictures of the current folder, like Adobe Bridge (on a Mac) –  user68827 Jun 6 '12 at 19:18
    
It is called "import" - but it actually means "scan" when you choose your pictures folder. But indeed it doesn't work as what you are looking for. –  Jakob Jun 7 '12 at 17:56

try digikam. (sudo apt-get install digikam)

It allows you to browse your filesystem, and it shows the number of pictures available rekursively for each folder. You dont need to import the pictures, but digikam will take (maybe hours) some time to scan your filesystem

note that digikam is a KDE tool and will require installation of a large amount of packages - it may not be the best option if he just wants a listing. –  ImaginaryRobots Jun 7 '12 at 17:50

You should be able to just do a search for specific file types in the file manager (Nautilus). Look for the option to search for image file types.

That doesn't show the (contents of the) images, though. –  Eliah Kagan Jun 7 '12 at 18:11
    
The screenshot on the page I linked to is showing thumbnails - is there some other information that you want displayed instead? –  ImaginaryRobots Jun 7 '12 at 18:34
    
I'm not the asker of the question, so I don't know, but it seems from the question like the OP may want something that will view the pictures in full size (without launching a separate application). –  Eliah Kagan Jun 7 '12 at 18:49
