GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 748598
EOG opens tiff always with a small window
Last modified: 2015-05-17 14:27:52 UTC
Usually the size of a newly opened eog window is as it was when closed.
But when opening tiffs the eog window always opens with 388x298 pixel.
No, eog does not remember its window size when closing.
If you start eog with an image it will try to make the window as large as necessary to achieve ideally 100% zoom. This is limited I think to about 2/3 of your screen size.

eog opens tiffs just too small on my machine.
That looks indeed wrong.
I suppose you can't attach the image here?
Can you launch eog from console with EOG_DEBUG=1 set and attach the output?
Okay, I could reproduce it with an empty TIFF file the size of yours. It seems the the signal to show the UI is emitted too early (before the size of the image is known) when the TIFF file is loaded. Converting the image to aother supported format like BMP or PNG makes it work correctly.
I'll have to check the logs why the signal emission was setup here, before I can change it.

EogImage: Fix too early size-prepared emission
If an image without metadata support is loaded it could happen that
the size-prepared signal was emitted without knowing the actual
image size. That resulted in a smaller than necessary window size.
Remove unneeded emission since the loader will make sure to emit the
signal once the size is known.
This problem has been fixed in the unstable development version. The fix will be available in the next major software release. You may need to upgrade your Linux distribution to obtain that newer version.
