Drag and drop.
Collections - a virtual group of images from several folders.
support for stereoscopic images
Viewing raster and vector images, in the following formats: 3FR, ANI, APM, ARW, BMP, CR2, CRW, CUR, DCR, DNG, ERF, GIF, ICNS, ICO, JPE/JPEG/JPG, JP2/JPC/JPX/J2K/JPF, JPS, K25, KDC, MEF, MPO, MOS, MRW, NEF, ORF, PCX, PEF, PBM/PGM/PNM/PPM, PNG, PTX, QIF/QTIF (QuickTime Image Format), R3D, RAF, RAS (Sun raster), RAW, SR2, SRF, SVG/SVGZ, TGA/TARGA, TIF/TIFF, WBMP, WMF, X3F, XBM, XPM. Animated GIFs are supported.
Images can be displayed singly in normal or fullscreen mode; static or slideshow mode; in sets of two or four per page for comparison; or as thumbnails of various sizes. Synchronised zoom when multi images are displayed.
Pan(orama) view displays image thumbnails in calendar, grid, folder and other layouts.
All available metadata and Exif/IPTC/XMP data can be displayed, as well as colour histograms and assigned tags, keywords and comments.
Selectable image overlay display box - can contain any text or meta-data.
Panels can be docked or floating.
Tags, both predefined and custom, can be assigned to images, and stored either as image metadata (where the file format allows), sidecar files, or in directory metadata files. Keywords and comments can also be assigned.
Basic editing in the form of lossless 90/180-degree rotation and flipping is supported; external programs such as GIMP, Inkscape, and custom scripts using ImageMagick can be linked to allow further processing.
Advanced searching is available using criteria such as filename, file size, age, image dimensions, similarity to a specified image, or by keywords or comments. If images have GPS coordinates embedded, you may also search for images within a radius of a geographical point.
Geeqie supports applying the colour profile embedded in an image along with the system monitor profile (or a user-specified monitor profile).
Geeqie sessions can be remotely controlled from external software, so it can be used as an image-viewer component of a bigger application.
Geeqie includes a 'find duplicates' tool which can compare images using a variety of criteria (filename, file size, visual similarity, dimensions, image content), either within a single folder or between two folders. Finding duplicates ignoring the rotation of images is also supported.
Images may be given a rating value (also known as a "star rating").
Maps from OpenStreetMap may be displayed in a side panel. If an image has GPS coordinates embedded, its position will be displayed on the map - if Image Direction is encoded, that will be displayed also. If an image does not have embedded GPS coordinates, it may be dragged-and-dropped onto the map to encode its position.
