I've recently tried out nomacs and it appears to modify image files without the users consent messing up both my file order (sorted by modification date) and causing syncing issues with my backup software.

Using the latest version (3.4.0-1~93~ubuntu16.10.1) from https://launchpad.net/~nomacs/+archive/ubuntu/stable

nomacs should not write anything unless you e.g. rotate. Could you please send us an image that is edited?

Really strange, I had to create an account to write a reply here.

Anyway, here is one of the images affected.
I did not rotate it or did anything else that should have caused a modification.

I apparently accidentally clicked onto the star rating and it changed the file date!
(The selected stars are difficult to notice IMO, but I do not intend to rate my pictures with that feature anyway.)

I turned on the file info, because I wanted to see the date and time of the file.

So I support the requested feature "Ask before modifying files".
