    Image viewer problem in 12.04

    Bottom edge of image viewer window is below bottom of screen, making scrolling and full viewing of image impossible. This is true using Image Viewer 3.4.2 in a clean install of Ubuntu 12.04 on a laptop with a 1280x800 screen. It is true whenever the pixel height of the image is greater than that of the screen, even though "Best Fit" is checked. Bug?

    Sounds like it could be a bug, have you tried Shotwell Photo Manager? I find Shotwell to be better to say the least.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install shotwell

    You may, if you wish, report this as a bug but is it a bug in Image Viewer or Unity.

    A way to work around this is to spread the four workplaces and then drag the application window partway into the lower workspace. Then expand that lower workspace and now you can adjust the application window size. And then push it back into the first workspace.

    I have used this workaround countless times because many programs don't like 1024x600 resolution. Its a great workaround, that didn't come to my mind when I posted earlier. Good job.

    If you lean on the Alt key and grab the window, you can move it up. Then make it shorter, and move the window down.
