Mezich,

thank you for all your work so far.

Could you update your page with the 'copy special' icon - in your own free time

... and an icon is now needed for the new "Spotlight" menu item <----- a metaphor icon of a 'led torch light' should be just sufficient. A 16x16 and a 24x24

Or perhaps a yellow marker icon (refering to highlighting).

No. Because 'highlighting', in the fashion your referring to, is not the original purpose of the "Spotlight" feature.

Yes, I guess it does. :( But the full screen icon does not show the second (larger) image.

Here is a crude color depth suggestion. The diagonal across the square is a common metaphor.

I like this icon John, where did you find it. I think (if Pierre agrees) an icon much like this would go well for 'Icon Snapshot on/off' proposed feature instead of using the sharing that same 'Multipage' icon I originally proposed. That's if the metaphor is still available?

OK John, But I was thinking it would make a nice icon for icon snapshot on/off - I like the metaphor, if mezich could recreat an icon similar to this.

--------------------------

So in latest summary these need doing:
1.) The "copy special" icon needs to be on the demopage :wink:
2.) I requested an icon for "Spotlight" (see latest XnView MP - Image>spotlight)
3.) I requested an icon for "Icon snapshot on/off" ,in this post
4.) Pierre requested an icon for "Edit IPTC/XMP" (in XnView MP Browser -Tools>Metadata>'Edit IPTC/XMP')

Pierre do you agree with this summary?

2. Why it called Spotlight? As I see this is quick way to change some values. I'm not sure that it should have icon.
3. I need more information.

yes I agree I like your 3rd one the best :)

Well, I think it should. A metaphor for it would be very simple as simple as an icon of a 'Torch flashlight' or even a 'lighthouse (with light)'

Read this below topic link for info on "Spotlight":
Subject: A "Spotlight" feature

An Icon for "icon snapshot" too should be easy like JohnFredC's posted icon would be nice. Good luck on everything

Tell me please why I should use spotlight tool? To select faces in group photo only? What is the use?
I'm afraid that XnView become monster with tons of features for "one person". By my opinion, not every tools in XnView should be promoted by icon. So I would like to see comments from you and from also other users.
