The main window of PreviewQt

Preview all kinds of files

PreviewQt is a very simple application for previewing a wide range of files. Its main aim is on speed, striving to provide a preview as instantaneously as possible. It achieves this by being very lightweight and by its ability to sit in the system tray, ready to show whatever is thrown at it.

Supported file formats include:

  • More than 140 image formats
  • All of the common video formats
  • Photo spheres and 360 degree panoramas (that use equirectangular projections)
  • Motion photos, Micro videos, and Apple live photos
  • PDF documents including page navigation
  • Archives (zip, tar.gz, rar, 7-zip) with the ability to explore its content
  • Comic Books (cbz, cbt, cbr, cb7) including page navigation

It is also possible to set up an external application for the categories of files. With a shortcut or button it is possible to pass a previewed file on to the provided external application for further processing.

You can pass files to PreviewQt by means of a remote application (small square) wth any file dropped on it passed on to PreviewQt. If you are running KDE Plasma 6, there is also a plasmoid that integrates nicely with your desktop.

If you like the overall concept of PreviewQt but would like to have more features, check out the fully featured image viewer PhotoQt.
