This section describes the options presented under the Image Tab of the preferences dialog.
Selects the method used to scale the size of an image:
Fastest scaler, but results in poor image quality.
Results are somewhat close to bilinear, with better speed.
High quality results, moderately fast.
Slowest scaler, sometimes gives better results than bilinear.
Use alternate renderer. Geeqie must be compiled with the --enable-gpu-accel option.
Enables Geeqie to first display a scaled image using the Nearest zoom quality. After image decoding is complete, the image is scaled again using the selected Zoom Quality method. This allows faster display of an image as it is decoded from the source file.
Adjusts the step size when zooming in or out on an image. This value corresponds to the percentage of the original image.
Enable this to allow Geeqie to increase the image size for images that are smaller than the current view area when the zoom is set to Fit image to window . This value sets the maximum expansion permitted in percent i.e. 100% is full-size.
This value will set the virtual size of the window when Fit image to window is set. Instead of using the actual size of the window, the specified percentage of the window will be used. It allows one to keep a border around the image (values lower than 100%) or to auto zoom the image (values greater than 100%). It affects fullscreen mode too.
Enable this to draw the image background (the area around the image) in the specified color.
Use this color chooser to define the color to use as image background.
You may use the Virtual window size (see above) option to keep a border around the image in fullscreen mode.
These two colors define the checkerboard background used when images with an alpha channel are displayed.
