Re: Does Windows dpi scaling reduce sharpness of images?

Perhaps but most probably it is unrelated to XnView per se. Anything which is up-scaled reduces the image quality.

Re: Batch convert to rename reduces file size

For what you want you can use Import and Sort - much faster. Steps: If you want to rename & copy the actual folder then: 1. Copy from Address Bar the actual folder 2. Start the Import & Sort dialog 3. Paste the actual folder in Source field. If not, just start the Import & Sort dialog. T...

Re: Text Field in Categories

I certainly understand what you are sayings but It is much better to NOT have this, because of various reasons. This problem is a very old (and known) in database theory. The discussion is big, but I'll mention briefly some things: 1. quality : by allowing a FREE text field the data entry is prone t...

Re: jpg Metadata, Importing, and Multiple Computers

You're welcome! :) 2a. Thanks for the script, however there's NO universal solution, as you mentioned. Use cases are very different between the users, thing which implies a very convoluted GUI in order to handle all of them, denying the principle of simplicity which is needed for such a downloader. ...

Re: jpg Metadata, Importing, and Multiple Computers

Hi FunkyB! Welcome among us! :) 1. It is harmless WRT quality. The metadata space is edited without touching the actual image data. 2a. "Importing photos" (as in Lr language) in XnView MP does NOT exist. (!) :shock: The images are automatically added to DB and ready to catalog when you &qu...

Dear kbezold, Welcome among us! Most probably nobody responded because your request is quite clear and it isn't first time when we have it. However, thumbs up for the screenshot from Clementine. Most probably that in a future version we'll have it. (what you're requesting is easy to implement either...

Re: Ratings not being saved

Colors work but ratings work only if a color is assigned. and categories? do you export rating/color in metadata? Ah yes there it is, "export ratings in XMP data" and that works. So that means write the ratings to the xnview.db SQLite database. Sorry didn't understand the terms. Thanks! I...

Re: ok, i'm trying to do something...

Got the 24bits thing. Never saw it. Anyway it is better to have it.
Also, got the Alienware thing. :)

Hmmm.... it seems that there are some APNGs with PNG extension. Toooooo bad. :( You must filter them out „by hand”. Do you have many of them?

Re: ok, i'm trying to do something...

Ok, I think that I can give you a solution. :) 1. PNG does not support animation. MNG or APNG does. (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portable_Network_Graphics ). 2. GIFs do not need to be converted - waste of time and (perhaps?) space. So, our problem turns to: a. Exclude (temporarily) APNGs and G...

Re: Join Image Automatic sizing

The most natural way is to automatically choose on the widest width, in the way in which it is working now. - just IMHO of course. :) But if you chose a strip width based on the widest image, you'd have to upscale the smaller images. Nope. The engine keeps the smallest image at its size - just adds...
