Pix Image Viewer, simple and useful image editor on Manjaro

Pix is a nice, simple Image Viewer and Editor that comes with Linux Mint 18.1. It comes with pretty simple user interface but its very easy to use. Pix 1.2.1 can be installed through Manjaro Pamac software manager.

Pix Image Viewer was developed based on gThumb Image Viewer. The browser mode will display image thumbnails of any images found on the selected folder. The detailed metadata of the selected image will be displayed on the left panel. We can also configure the layout of the main window as well.

Edit Image with Pix Image Viewer

Now lets try the image editing feature on this application. Click the Edit button on the top right to open the edit menu where you can find some adjustment tools. Unfortunately there is no slider for the contrast menu, so we cannot change it manually.

Install Pix on Manjaro

In my case, I also install clutter-gtk to run Pix properly.

sudo pacman -S clutter-gtk
