Bug Description

In viewer and full screen mode Gthumb let's the user to choose between "set actual size / fit window / fit window if larger etc". In slide show mode the images are always shown in "fit window" mode even when the image is very small. This results in very poor quality slideshow experience. The suggested solution: please add the same options to slide show mode so that the user can choose what zooming function to use (whether to use original size, fit window etc...).

Finally found "fit image to window" button in "view" dropdown in normal mode. It was driving me crazy that the window kept resizing to whatever it WANTED to. (version 2.14.3) If you view in slideshow, it does make very small images larger. In full screen (maximized) it's not designed to do that but it's pretty easy to go to the top of the screen and hit the zoom button.
I was expecting to find this behavior in "preferences" but no it's right there in "view" without opening preferences. I guess I always do things the hard way.
Hope it helps someone searching with this same problem.
