Using the Image Viewer

The Image Viewer software is unique in that you usually don't start it by itself. There's no entry for it in the default Ubuntu Applications menu. Instead, it's usually started by some other application, such as Nautilus, when you want to view image files. If you're viewing a folder in Nautilus and double-click on an image file, the Image Viewer main window appears with the image inside, as shown in Figure 10-1.
