One way to show image properties
Eye of GNOME currently offers three different methods for a user to see image properties:
- Status bar
- Side pane
- Properties dialog
This is problematic for various reasons:
- It clutters up the primary menu.
- It isn't clear to users which option they should use.
- It prevents us from properly improving the design of the image properties experience (because which one is it we're developing?)
- It allows users to clutter up the UI with multiple overlapping options (say if the status bar and side pane are displayed at once).
I don't believe that it's the user's responsibility to configure their apps properly. It's our responsibility to provide a sane set of high-quality options, which don't degrade the user experience.
We should pick one option (probably the side pane) and drop the other two.
