Qt5-based image viewer PhotoQt

Conclusions

PhotoQt makes a good impression at first glance. In terms of controls, it does not differ significantly from predecessors like Geeqie. Nonetheless, the software lacks important functions for managing the images, which significantly restricts its use especially in larger image collections, even though the filters offer an interesting approach.

All told, PhotoQt still does not implement the concept of having a single application for touchscreens, laptops, and desktop PCs in an ideal way. For example, the absence of context menus forces many unnecessary mouse movements, which has an impact on effectiveness depending on the size of the desktop. But, it is still definitely worth keeping an eye on the project's development.
