KSquirrel is an image viewer for KDE with disk navigator, file tree, thumbnails, extended thumbnails, dynamic format support, DCOP interface and tools to resize, rotate, convert, colorize and print images (since 0.6.0-pre7).A lack of dynamic support of formats is a big minus for programs of a similar sort. Any person, possessing the certain knowledge of any format of the image and language C++, should have an opportunity to add support of the favourite format by himself. For these purposes the set of dynamically loaded codecs was created - ksquirrel-libs. KSquirrel loads these codecs from the directory /usr/lib/ksquirrel-libs and uses it for decoding images. Support of formats completely dynamic. It means, that it is possible not only to change contents of the directory /usr/lib/ksquirrel-libs, adding (or deleting) the libraries, but also to do it directly during work. If the corresponding option in options is checked, KSquirrel will inform you on what libraries have just been added or removed.
