It can also import photos from digital cameras and support exporting photos to online services such as Facebook, PicasaWeb and more.


The two most notable changes include in gThumb 3.3.3 are Special effects that include Dessert, Soil, Fresh Blue, Mangos, Vintage, Blurred Edges, Negative and more such effects and the second is color curve adjusting.

There are many other changes in gThumb 3.3.3 –

  • unified ‘equalize histogram’ and ‘adjust contrast’: show a preview of the various contrast filters;
  • The grayscale tool now shows a preview of the different filters;
  • fixed the interface style when used with gtk + 3.14;
  • file property view:
    • use a switcher;
    • added a details page that shows all the metadata, show only the important exif fields in the properties page;
  • UI changes to the preferences dialog:
    • use a sidebar instead of a notebook to avoid a large dialog with some translations;
    • better spacing;
    • removed the Ok button;
  • video player:
    • save the screenshot without showing the dialog;
    • allow to set the location of the screenshot in the extension preferences dialog;
    • show a message in the status bar after saving;
  • fixed Flickr image uploading.

Other than these features, there are many bug fixes in this release.

Important note: gThumb 3.3.x uses header bars so only install it on desktop environments that support header bars (also known as client-side decorations), like GNOME (Shell) or Cinnamon! In Unity, for instance, you can use a hack to disable the header bars, but you’ll also have to remove the overlay-scrollbar package or else some parts of the app will be transparent (here’s a gThumb screenshot taken in Unity without applying these tweaks).
