qView overview

qView is an image viewer designed with minimalism and usability in mind. An image viewer for viewing. No toolbars or distractions-pure space efficiency.

Beautifully simple

qView was designed from the very start to be as visually minimal and space efficient as possible. No cluttered interface, just your image and a titlebar.

Fast and lightweight

You shouldn't have to wait just to view an image—qView opens practically instantly, and switching images is just as quick, all while having low memory and CPU usage.


With features such as animated GIF controls, file history, rotation/mirroring, and multithreaded preloading, minimalism doesn't have to be a compromise.
