KDE Dev-Vlog 3: The Final of the Gwenview Trilogy

For several weeks we have been working on the user interface of KDE's standard image viewer Gwenview and now the date for the release is just around the corner. In this video five remaining problems are pointed out. We were able to implement solutions to most of them in time for the Gwenview 21.08 release.

KDE Dev-Vlog 2: The Eye of the Beholder

This video continues right where the prior one left off: Improving the user interface of Gwenview, the default image viewer of KDE.

Different than the first video, this one is slightly thrilling at times. It also has more of a focus on showing the work processes instead of mostly presenting the results and thoughts behind it.

Have fun!

This is a German video with hand-crafted English subtitles.

KDE Dev-Vlog 1: Gwenview becomes more pretty

Hello! I've been contributing to KDE software for a while but this is the first blog post I am writing.

Over the last couple of weeks we have been improving the user interface of the default KDE image viewer Gwenview. Instead of just writing a text about the steps of turning a mockup into reality I made a video. I think it is way easier to show the evolution this way and it is also more fun for me personally. I think the video turned out great overall so please enjoy!

I went through the effort of writing English subtitles for this German video so I hope you won't mind reading them.

Strangely enough this is the first time the KDE community can see moving pictures of me even though I've been contributing for over two years now: I didn't have a webcam until recently and in-person events weren't possible because of Covid.
