Req: Cache two different thumbnail sizes

Post by JohnFredC » Wed Jan 31, 2007 6:52 pm

Most of the time I use rather large thumbs. But sometimes I need to see a lot of thumbs at once.

My request is that XnView store 2 sizes of thumbs in the cache: "small" and "large".

This is how it would work:
  • The options dialog would allow me to select two different sizes for thumbs.

    When caching thumbs, XnView would automatically create and save BOTH sizes.

    Then, with a toolbar button (or menu option, of course) I could switch quickly between the two sizes without waiting for the thumbs to be rebuilt.

:) Hello John !

• Although it's the opposite situation here - I use the most times small thumb nails and need larger ones from time to time -
I support your wish !

• To switch between the two sizes, I would like a button… :wink:

• This leads to get something we have now in TC, and I proposed there, totally ignored by the Author, it seems :|

Please see the other thread. I still prefer my suggestion (you would specify the large size in cache and freely adjust the small version in realtime, for example). Of course discussion is much welcome there.

One more wish: when changing to the bigger thumbnails I would like to have a different layout too. Usually (with small thumbs) I have the folder tree on the left. With the bigger thumbs I remove this to have more space available for viewing. So such an action (changing thumbnail size) should include the current/desired window layout.
