Alternative way for "Change color depth" is represent most common usage. By my opinion this is decrease count of colors. What do you think?
Directionality/position-based meaning precedence is a cultural thing. Left-right has precedence in Western culture, so I personally would interpret my little color depth example to mean "increase" in color depth.

As an aside:

Precedence/directionality is not only left-right-top-bottom, but also "most recent/least recent", typically indicated by "in front/behind".

For instance, in the Image Resize example #1 (posted above), from a Westerner's point of view there are two possible interpretations of the precedence of the components:

1. Smaller on left, larger on right suggests "small-to-large" (since by convention left occurs first in time).
2. Smaller in front, larger behind suggests "large-to-small" (since behind -underneath- occurs first in time).

So that icon is ambiguous.

"Send by FTP"


What is 'Shadow/highlight' ?
I can't found it nor XnView, nor XnViewMP.

In Xn, image/Map>Shadow. Allows to modify shadow or highlight tone of a picture

№ 1 is perfect. (The bi-di arrows in № 3+5 mean “exchange” to me.)

1, 3, 5 ImageResize
2, 4, 6 CanvasResize
I also like № 4+6, ...

... but the dashed borders would be more suitable for cmd_SelectAll and/or SelectNone.

For me #1 is good also.

In XnView I have not seen dashed border in selection.
So here my version of SelectAll:

I think icon SelectAll/SelectNone should work as checkbox in toolbar - icon pushed(clicked) when all or part of image is selected.

You were right, Yuri. Those handles will make it easier to distinguish between the icons for Canvas resize and Select all. As of v0.31, the latter hasn't made it into MP yet:

Sorry for delay people. Now I'm too busy on making money. I hope to be free this weekend or early next week to begin with xnView icons.
