    Starts in fullscreen by default, bloated - includes a file browser, lacking settings to make it as simple a picture viewer as photo viewer is. Not too user-friendly of an UI. May have it's uses, but does far too much for the requirements - if I wanna edit I'll just jump into photoshop, if I wanna browse - I'll just jump into a file browser.
