Ubuntu – Ubuntu replacement for IrfanView


On Windows I really liked IrfanView as a basic image editor/manager.
Some of the main features I liked were

  • great shortcut keys
  • good batch conversion options
  • ability to work with many image file formats
  • easy viewing of images in a folder
  • ability to open the program and paste the clipboard and do a quick save
  • simple cropping

Though it did have a lot of features, they tended not to get in the way of simple tasks.

What would be a good replacement on Ubuntu?
