Re: Folder tree very slow to load

Check your Network folder. Sometimes shares and printers from long-gone PCs are stored there and some programs pick them up. I haven't seen it happen on 7 yet, just XP, but it's a possibility. If I click on the Network in the folder pane when I open XnView, I get the long hang too.

Re: Addons/Plugins/...

Terribly confused, I'm trying to write support for a new format with the Plugin SDK but it isn't working at all. The Plugin SDK exports the following functions: gfpGetPluginInfo gfpLoadPictureInit gfpLoadPictureGetInfo gfpLoadPictureGetLine gfpLoadPictureGetColormap gfpLoadPictureExit gfpSavePicture...

Re: Improving nConvert performance

If you timed it, I bet most of your time would be wasted in the actual startup and shutdown of nconvert, not the internal manipulation. It's a pretty bulky program. You'd probably be better off hooking into gfl sdk as a dll/so so it only has to load up once, or using batch conversion to process the ...

Re: How come no Microsoft Office (WORD, EXCEL) support?

The 2007 and up versions sometimes have embedded thumbnails easily accessible in the zip, mostly in powerpoints: <root>\docProps\thumbnail.jpeg. That might get you part of the way. The older versions also do, but you have to parse the binary IStream file format to get to them.

Re: Export with categoris

If you have them on EXACTLY the same network drives and paths on both PCs, it's really really simple: Just copy %appdata%\XnView\category.db to the second PC. Copy it back and forth when you update it, or get a syncronization program to do it for you. (%appdata% expands to C:\Users\<name>\AppData\Ro...

Re: jpeg saved to black and white has a bigger file size??!!

Could you explain me this? : I opened an jpeg image, did not make any change, just saved it to jpeg 50% quality. Result: 151ko Then, I opened the same image, converted it to binary (no dither), and saved it to jpeg 50% quality. Result: 204Ko :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: I thought I would dec...

Color quantization problems

This is half bug report/half enhancement request. From an old thread: But with the -dither, all is ok, no? Yes, but the output is... dithered ! I do not want dithering in the output images, I need plain colors. Yes, right. There is a problem because when i quantize picture, i reduce bits per compone...

NConvert/XnView plugins for 64-bit?

Hello! I'm currently using 64-bit nconvert to process images that are too huge for 32-bit to handle. Is there any possibility that you could compile the format plugins for 64-bit? I'm most interested in JBIG and JPEG-2000, if that helps (I realize for lurawave, the only way to get 64-bit would be a ...

I've asked before for xnview to just use the original file if it's on a gdiplus platform (xp, 2000, 2003, and vista can handle even more formats). Seems a complete waste to convert from one supported format to a much larger supported format. And yeah, converting unsupported formats to either a maxim...

You have to check the option to use full screen on the secondary monitor, in the full screen options. xnview doesn't check which monitor the browser is running on, only that option.

Are you guys talking about images that have broken alpha channels, or that xnview is incorrectly reading or applying existing alpha channels? I can't think of a single time you'd want to use a watermark with an alpha channel and not use it, so an option sounds like the wrong solution.... If xnview's...

Just to clear up a technical misconception: There is no 4:1:1 in jpeg (though DV uses it), there's 4:4:4 (1x1), 4:2:0 (2x2), 4:2:2 (1x2), and there's no real name for 2x1's format. Good jpeg decoders will upsample downsampled chroma so that it's not as obvious. (Good ones will also minimize corrupti...
