There are many interesting ways to edit images with Gwenview available through the Tools menu. Among other options, you can:

  • Create a calendar from your pictures
  • Select images to combine in a video or animation
  • Convert RAW images from a camera to other formats
  • Convert a photo into a panorama (a bit like the Liquid Rescale function in Gimp)
  • Blend different pictures into one image

Batch processing

There is more to editing than just working on one image at a time, though. You can also do Batch Processing. There are many actions available, such as:

  • Changing borders and colors
  • Resizing images
  • Reconverting images
  • Removing red eyes
  • …and much more
