PhotoQt is an image viewer that does things a little different. Its unique interface might remind some of the 'Lightbox' image viewer that can be found on some websites. Others might be reminded of smartphone image viewers. In the end, there are certainly similarities, however, PhotoQt is written and optimized for normal desktop usage. As such, the main interface consists of nothing but the viewed image, with a few elements available as fade-in/slide-in (e.g., thumbnails along the bottom edge). With its flexibility and speed it can easily adapt perfectly to each individual workflow.
I am Lukas Spies, the sole developer of PhotoQt. Born and raised in Germany, I left my home country to pursue my university studies shortly after finishing high school. Since then I have lived for some years in Ireland, Canada, USA, and France, studying and doing research in Mathematics and Computer Science. Currently I am living in the US of A (in the Midwest) pursuing a PhD in Scientific Computing.
Developing PhotoQt takes up quite a bit of my free time. I appreciate any donation showing your appreciation of my efforts.
