Re: what code page in IPTC description field

XnView has no unicode capability, unlike most software, so that's probably where the problem comes from. :(

My favorite skin. =D

Can you post a blank copy of the button so that I could make a couple of the missing icons? I'm tired of using random icons around my system for export, delete, etc.

Look up imageshack and photobucket, they're the two main image upload services, if you don't have an FTP available. You can also get Pierre's email from the main website.

Re: Some questions

Is there a shorter way to sharpen pics? Is the preview wrong? Yes, the preview is generally useless, but you can use Apply to Image to see the real effect. As an aside - avoid the basic 'sharpen' in all software like the plague, it causes extremely ugly ringing (black and white edges around objects...

Any chance arrows can be added to the paint plugin? I sometimes use them when editing screenshots. Yes, development time should be wasted including a minor feature that other software does much better. How much point is there in using something less powerful than MS Paint? This might be an unpopula...

Xnview has always done very strange things with print screen when it's open, for me, though I never got around to reporting it. Oddly, I have the same card, though it occurred on a 9200-based laptop as well. (I get 1-bit monochrome output, not even 8-bit like you.) The only way you can get good scre...

Please post one of these jpegs, or upload to an image host service (don't let it re-encode, obvs), both before and after, so that we can tell whether it's a bug in xnview or a bug in Arcsoft that might have to be worked around.

Not sure, other than it works fine here and for many others, though it has definitely changes some of the movie code. Something you might want to do is use a debugger (like windbg, though it's not terribly easy to use) to scan the call stack at the point that it crashes. You can probably also use Pr...

Oh, I guess that option is on by default. Well, I turned it off, so I'll see how it goes.

Basically, you found the dichotomy: In what's called the browser fullscreen, HQ view is very restricted, in the other "viewer" fullscreen, HQ is used in all zooms. The behavior was settled on during the early 1.9 discussions.

I don't have any workaround for this though.

For videos, XnView check extension. For pictures, xnview can read header to find the format... It does? o.O Whenever I have a picture in a folder with a wrong extension, it's always given a blank icon and won't open. (Showing properties sometimes does show the real format though, for whatever good ...

Re: 256---

Many other viewers do use high quality (as Lanczos resampling as XnView itself uses) on 65k / 256 / 16 / 1 color pics too, like http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm Even acdsee does some kind of upsampling of paletted pics, but not very good. Joachim Xnview only uses lanczos in slide show (w...

Re: Misc Ideas

1. It does have count colors in the image menu, when in view mode, but if you mean the browser then yeah, it's unfortunate that no color count exists. 2. I find working with file lists as text files to be an incredibly powerful paradigm. I have no idea why it's not more common, I'm stuck with a bugg...

Uninstall any codec packs any other codecs you might have. There's a good tool that can help you with this: CCCP Insurgent. Once you have everything sorted out, you can install something like CCCP, K-Lite ( NOT K-lite Mega), or simply ffdshow tryouts+haali's media splitter. Update DirectX as well, t...

Re: Display and storage of pictures

LADIES AND/OR GENTLEMEN: I like XN View very much, but I don't find some features, which are very important to me. I am using a Canon camera and/or take the pictures from a 1:1 burned CD from my storage medium (flash-card, USB-stick, or copies from CD) 1.) I don't find the feature for Thumbnails 2....
