Image-dired is a facility for browsing, organizing and tagging image files. It provides viewing the images either as thumbnails or in full size, either inside Emacs or through an external viewer.
Image-dired was first known as tumme. It is part of emacs since version 22.1.
You need ImageMagick for thumbnails creation and image manipulation.
- and choose a directory with images.
Alternatively, you can mark the image files you want to look at in the Dired buffer, using m as usual. Then type C-t d (image-dired-display-thumbs). This creates and switches to a buffer containing image-dired, corresponding to the marked files.
- From thumbnail buffer, mark, unmark and flag files in associated dired buffer.
- Tracking of movements in thumbnail buffer and mirroring of those movements in dired buffer, and the other way around.
- From thumbnail buffer, view thumbnail’s original image in external viewer or, automatically resized, in an Emacs buffer
- Rotate thumbnail images.
- Comment and tag support (writing, reading, marking by tag).
- Lossless rotation of JPEG files using jpegTRAN.
- Generation of a simple, static image gallery.
- Supports browing of all images types that Emacs and ImageMagick supports.
- Functions to write and extract EXIF comments using Exiftool.
- Configurable thumbnail storage (per-directory or in a central location)
- Because it is based on dired, you can do further file manipulation and image processing by using ‘dired-do-shell-command’.
