Mirage is a fast and simple GTK+ image viewer. Mirage project supports a variety of image formats (png, jpg, xpm, gif, bmp, tiff, and many others). Mirage provides zooming and rotating capabilities, as well as displaying transparency as a checkerboard.

Because it depends only on PyGTK, Mirage is ideal for users who wish to keep their computers lean while still having a clean image viewer.

Mirage was written because of what I perceive to be a lack of a simple and lightweight GTK+ image viewer available. A secondary reason was my desire to learn python and the GTK+ toolkit, of which I am very fond. It's been a struggle and a challenge at times, but a fun one at that.

GTK+ version 2.6.x
