Re: Provide a version of XnViewMP with no thumbnail support

I fear dear sir that you have developed what is called the thumbnoliaphobia.
just get a decent computer (faster drives , more memory, faster processor) or try windows.
and you'll be cured.

and also..just try to stop calling people silly around here... you'll feel better.

Re: Free size of thumbnails

XnView is many things to many people. Some may even prefer PhotoScape-style grids . Sure, but that's quite off topic. this is a creator tool meant to create a composition.(this would most probably be a candidate for a plug-in.) In any case I have a feeling that this discussion is sterile, until Pie...

Re: Free size of thumbnails

To me, the Masonry approach isn't so much about optimzed use of screen real estate or aligning thumbnails along both the left and right margin ( justification ) of the pane. I like the concept, because it might enable XnView's browser to better accomodate thumbnails of images with mixed aspect rati...

Re: Free size of thumbnails

My opinion is that unless I have to work for a very long period (a very huge folder) in a specific folder only containing a unique format of images that strongly deviates from the 1:1 ratio, going through the length of adjusting a thumbnail ratio that I will have to change back again once I get bac...

Re: Free size of thumbnails

Hi Thibaud, 1:1 is useful for folders with an even mix of both portrait and landscape images. But for folders dominated by one or the other orientation, 1:1 becomes increasingly inefficient. For instance, I have many (many!) folders of horizontal panoramas. Compare three approaches to displaying th...

Re: Free size of thumbnails

Someone please en-light me as to what the thumbnail ratio would do ? AFAIK Thumbnails are strictly using the original image ratio. (and I fail to see any good reason why anyone would want to change that, cropped thumbnails ?) Perhaps are you talking about the "thumbnail cell" which is conveniently s...

Re: [0.61] Folders icon in XnView MP and Classic differ

The truth is, the bigger folder are actually more easily identified as being folder not containing any thumbs. I suspect that the problem is that by using xnview for a while, you trained your brain at finding the logic in it's flawed way of displaying the folders. I understand that it makes you reac...

Re: [0.61] Folders icon in XnView MP and Classic differ

I'd say the way xnviewMP displays it, is the correct way.
I see no reason why the folder representation itself should change.

Re: Request: please enable some tools in view mode.

But why not just give a menu item like XnView classic, I used to press Ctrl+U and Shift+Delete, and now none of them lefted in XnViewMP. Ok, i'll add 'Batch convert' in view mode I suppose having ctrl+u working in view mode isn't a problem. But I still fail to understand the purpose of opening batc...

Re: Reqst: Integer Thumb Tiling/Autofit thumbs

Good point. Exactly.
Though id be curious to know why would someone prefer to use the "old" method (thumbs not fitting the view).
performance perhaps ?

Re: Reqst: Integer Thumb Tiling/Autofit thumbs

Mhh, seems weird to have "fit" to be a button you'd need to push every time the browse pane is resized. imo it should a be either a toggle button or an option in the settings that once turned on: make the thumb size slider behaves like a step slider ranging from 1 thumb per row to 50 or whatever (yo...

Re: Re-re-re-thinking thumbnails

I'm not sure having the thumbnail cell re-sized every time the browser window is re-sized will be much faster :)
I still believe this would look way better this empty space sitting at the end of each row is something that bothered me since xnview exist

I vote Yes for all points.

also looks like there's some open source gpu based (cuda only) codec.
