Great News.

Thank you Pierre... and everybody involved (somehow) in XnView for this piece of really useful software.

Cheers,

Any update ?

I update this thread and make a list of various usefull requests about this 'High Zoom Quality' issue: - Use 2 passes (Normal quality first, then Higher quality in the background) - User's actions should start immediately (and interrupt background processes if required). Now, my turn: :mrgreen: I no...

Looks fine to me.
Maybe a generic "RAW" format for the various RAWs of digital cameras (Canon crw+thm and cr2, Nikon nef, Olympus orf, Minolta mrw, Pentax pef, Sony srf, Sigma x3f, Kodak dcr, etc...) although I don't think that all of them are already implemented in xnview.

Personally I'd prefer the spin buttons and have no default extra digit I wouldn't want to spoil the party here... :D , but I tend to prefer the extra digit version. The more options you add to do the same thing (without real specific advantage), the more clutter you add. And this never helps the en...

I don't know how you feel about it, but I personnaly prefer the simple icons without the "white page" design on it. It looks more 'professional' to me: clear and efficient ...and a lot of cheap applications keep using this damn old 'white page' design... :mrgreen: So far, my preferred version is thi...

I've put some more work into the 16x16 pixel icons and modified some few icons as examples. Excellent work, Helmut. I like it quite a lot: - Nice and recognisable xnview logo - Readable filetype (horizontal, at the bottom, like this, is great) - Clean and 'light' design Great like this... :D About ...

Re: Iconset for XnView 1.75

The 16x16 pixel icon all look the same for all formats (JPG, TIF, ...), so the format cannot be seen when looking at the icon (different to ACDSee). Why not? Most letters can probably be drawned within 5x5 pixels or even 5x4, which would be enough for 3 letters in the 16x16 icons. I personnaly have...

Thanks, Olivier...But is there a way to redirect the standard Plugins folder (as opposed to simply the Adobe plugins location)? I really don't know... sorry. Thanks a lot for the explanation about RamDiskPlus. Interesting... (not for me, though... as my 448MB is used by the System+progs more often ...

You can change the cache Location in:
Menu Tools > Options => Browser > Cache: Directory

And for the Adobe Plugins:
> Options => Plugin Adobe 8bf

But, is the 1GB ram disk really useful?

IIT (Image Info Toolkit), IrfanView are able to show all the IPTC fields correctly...
The image is from 2002, and a comment mentions that it was edited with Photoshop 4 (I don't know if it helps...)
I am surprised that XnView doesn't show all the IPTC fields here :(

XMP and IPTC

Images can carry both IPTC (IIMv4.1) and XMP (Adobe's own implementation of metadada, that Photoshop call "IPTC" as well). They may be used in parallel... as in Photoshop. It seems that Photoshop writes into both XMP and IPTC, but read only from XMP. => Create/Update in PS => IPTC updated in XnView ...
