Re: XnView MP 0.93

There are examples of bad images in attached files with "_res" in the end The code ...

Re: Nconvert - From square to circular images

Is there a way to bulk convert square images (all 100x100) to Circular images with NConvert? I'm working on a script that reads a directory, copies its content on file change, and then converts the image using Nconvert. I couldn't find anything in the help of NConvert on Windows. Circular images?? ...

Re: [NConvert] Watermark as Percentage of Image Size

The most recent NConvert help file listing I have to hand doesn't show 'Percentage (width)' so it probably hasn't been added yet, if you wish you could make a request in a separate thread for it to be added. A possible workaround might be to make a resized copy of the watermark file in a separate co...

Re: Warning message "this picture will be converted to rgb with 8 bits per component"

Which message will be more clearer? Not entirely easy... :wink: Minimal change would be "This picture will be converted to RGB with 8 bits per pixel, the original file will not be changed." Possibly clearer and more accurate: "This image will be opened as RGB with 8 bits per pixel, the original fil...

Warning message "this picture will be converted to rgb with 8 bits per component"

Before an image with a bit depth greater than 24 bits is opened a warning message is displayed advising that the image will be converted to 8 bits per component. In practice users are sometimes unsure whether the original file opened will be modified, and therefore understandably concerned. Suggesti...

Re: Please elaborate on "this picture will be converted to rgb ..."

Hopefully, other users will weigh in, but my opinion remains that users do not need to know this and should never see the message. This is something that should remain under the covers. Probably, if I were editing the photo with XnView, the warning would be important (I use Photoshop Elements to ed...

Re: Please elaborate on "this picture will be converted to rgb ..."

What is the purpose in warning users of this? Who cares? Users can do nothing with this information, and It is alarming. Consider the time I've wasted (including a bit of yours) because of this message. This occurred within 2 minutes of my first trial run of XnView, and frankly, it has turned me of...

Re: Please elaborate on "this picture will be converted to rgb ..."

When a file is opened in XnView software the bitmap created that is used for any further processing or saving, is 24-bit depth; the original file opened is unaltered, so there is no reason for concern there. You could test using a copy of a higher bit depth file to confirm that. The warning message ...

Re: Color Separatoin | High Contrast B&W

I am seeking something like a eye dropper (like in Gimp I think?) that I can use to identify a color, then with that HEX value change that color to another one. Maybe I am ahead of myself? There is likely a way to see the value of particular pixels, but I don't think there is a way to globally chan...

Re: Option to disable XnView from starting up whenever we view an image in fullscreen mode

Whenever you open an image to be viewed in fullscreen mode, after pressing ESC to exit, XnView program is automatically opened and shows that same image. I find that intrusive, it would be nice to have an option to disable XnView from automatically opening whenever we view an image in fullscreen mo...

Re: Filelist option - Help file shows incorrect syntax?

Resolved I think: The issue seems to have been related to the detailed format of the filelists used, correct output is now obtained with either -l or -L . For reference the following filelist, with each filename on a separate line, works: Input\1.jpg Input\2.jpg Input\3.jpg Input\4.jpg That is the f...
