Image Viewing and Manipulation

The basic image viewer is xv, but Mandrake comes with half a dozen image manipulation programs. Among these, gimp (the unfortunately-named Gnu Image Manipulation Program) is a favorite, comparable to Adobe photoshop. There are also several ``paint''-type programs, with mostly self-explanatory interfaces. The program gphoto is useful for downloading photos from a digital camera. A couple of programs can be used to magnify what's on the screen under the mouse pointer; try kreglo and kmag.
