Allow user-defined pattern pictures as background

Post by Phenomenon » Thu Jan 10, 2019 11:37 pm

Images opened with XnView are shown on a flat solid color background. The user can chose what that color is. Being in 2019, flat solid backgrounds are as primitive as cavemen. Allow users to set their own image pattern as background. There are options of noise, checkers, gradients...

Flat solid color on the left, noise pattern on the right (not for laymen, for those, everything is the same)

An example of progress:
Windows 2000 flat solid color background on the left, Windows 7 non-flat evolved background on the right (not a pattern, but it's the idea that matters)

It's about time we put Windows 2000 behind our back. (:
