Re: Screen resolution of thumbnails

Thanks, Helmut. I don't really want to slow down the program, so I'll heed your advice. I thought that the sharpening might be useful though, but when I tick "sharpen thumbnail" and then "Rebuild thumbnails", the process runs until it gets to a particular folder on my PC then is seems to stop. I've ...

Screen resolution of large thumbnails

Can anyone tell me why the thumbnails shown on my computer in XnView MP appear at very low resolution? They don't look bad at small sizes, but at say 192 x 144 and bigger they are very blurred. The originals are all about 5000x4000px. How can I get them to appear clearly?
Thanks

Re: How can I export my ratings and colours?

Hi Erixx haxx, Yes, I think you've hit the nail on the head there. I was trying to get the best of all worlds. I've been a PC user for 35 years and a mac user for 1 year, the latter mainly to use Affinity Photo. As Serif now say they are going to launch Affinity for Windows later this year I was try...

Re: How can I export my ratings and colours?

Another thought - when I searched for XnView.db on my PC, I found 2 - one in C:\Users\myname\AppData\Roaming\XnViewMP\XnView.db, and C:\Documents and settings\myname\AppData\Roaming\XnViewMP\XnView.db. Both were the same age and size. The path set in XnView is to the first one whereas I think I copi...

Re: How can I export my ratings and colours?

A further issue. I closed XnViewMP on my mac and re-opened it, as I remembered I had to do that when changing the names of the colour labels to make the changes visible. What I was hoping to see was the same ratings and colours as on the PC. On the PC, nothing has a star rating, and many images have...

Re: How can I export my ratings and colours?

Thanks XnTriq, I'm actually trying to migrate from my PC to my Macmini. The "correct" ratings and colours were set in the PC. I back this PC up to an external USB drive just by copying the PC images to it, and I read the copied files on the backup drive with my mac whose HDD isn't big enough for all...

How can I export my ratings and colours?

I've found that if I browse through my images and assign ratings and colours to them, then if I back up my files to an external drive and then examine the files on that external drive (actually my backups drive) then those ratings and colours are not there. It seems as though the files themselves ar...

Re: Customise meaning of stars and colours

Thanks, XnTriq. I'm fairly new to XnView and although I thought I'd trawled through all the menus, I hadn't done a good job and discovered that one. So my colours are now redefined, but I guess you are confirming I can't do that for the stars? It's taken me many hours of trying and checking many pho...

Customise meaning of stars and colours

I'm using XnView to organise my image collection and workflow. It would be very useful to be able to redefine what the stars and colours represent, from the standard ones to user-defined ones, and for these new labels to appear in the filters [ie I'd like to be able to change, for example, "5* Excel...
