Version: 1.3.1 (using KDE KDE 3.5.3)
Installed from: Debian testing/unstable Packages
How about incorporating a "Watch file" feature so that the application reloads an image file automatically when it is modified (as kview does)? This is useful for me since I like to have a graph displayed while I rerun the program that generates that graph several times between making changes to the program code. It would be convenient if the graph image was reloaded automatically by gwenview.
Sorry, I was filing this as "Wishlist", not "Bug". But my "Short description" was to short, and when I was asked to rewrite it by the bug report wizard, the bug report had automatically jumped from "Wishlist" to "Bug".
It would be convenient if the watch feature was not just for images but for thumbnails as well—see Bug 131068.
Confirming feature is still missing in KDE 4.4.1.

Confirming feature is still missing in Gwenview 2.6.0 (KDE 4.6.3).
This would be useful for when you edit an image in an external editor. The changes should show up immediately when you switch back to Gwenview.
Tested this out. It *sort of* works now. When you have an image open in Gwenview and you edit it in another program:
- In browse mode, the thumbnail is instantly updated
- In View mode, the thumbnail is instantly updated
- In view mode, the actual large image is NOT instantly updated, even after you view another image and come back to that one. You need to restart the program.
Marking as a bug rather than a wishlist item.

Still an issue as of Gwenview 17.12.1. Nate's description of the symptoms is spot on.
You don't have to close and open, you can just hit refresh (F5), but it's still annoying if there are lots of images.
slightly related: Even when F5 is pressed to refresh the image, the image size shown in pixels in the title bar does not refresh at all.
This can be annoying, for example when you're trying to optimise the size of a graph image, and you need to know how large the current version is.
It DOES refresh if you move to another image, and then move back, after a refresh.

Cannot reproduce that part with 17.12.3, I guess it has been fixed in one of the patches we did in this area recently.
