- make separate page about XnView Shell Extension (with detailed info)
- add custom size for image resizing option
- add "Fit to desktop" in "Set wallpaper as" (I think that "Fit to desktop" is better than "Best fit to desktop")
Btw, XnView Shell Extension is now on my blog
(I guess first Serbian blog/web site with some useful info about Extension)
Ok here are ALL my recent requests that I have moved from a previous posting within this topic and have consolidated into all-in-one (no post bumping was intended):
Here are some things I request for a future XnShell 3.0.0 xx :
A clean up is needed of the context menu 'highlighter' visual under Vista/7 when previewing images ON the context menu (non sub-menu), look at the comparison for what I mean; http://i46.tinypic.com/2qtfmg8.png
More fixes/feature for the "File's Icon"
Right, all of the below that I have striked-out text for "File's Icon" can be solved by implementing a registry scanner feature within "File's Icon" much like FileTypesMan by nirsoft uses
I took these screenshots for help:
- for .URL (native internet explorer) use custom argument system32\url.dll,0
- for File-type with no icon assigned, use custom argument system32\imageres.dll,1
- for FOLDERS in Vista/7 use custom argument system32\imageres.dll,2
-support for File Icon path's that lead direct to a .ico (non-embedded file type icons not located within a .exe or .dll) e.g. foobar2000 file type icons; pic1 , pic2
-support for icons of folders
-support for shortcut .url files (native Internet Explorer ones)
-support for 'simple' blank Windows file icons (filetypes with no registered association or known file extension) on Win Vista/7 they look as this icon and on Win XP they look as this icon
'File's Icon' might be better named as Item's Icon
.. If support for folders was added.. just a thought..
File's Icon - Add an 'Extract icon' feature as a button.
A simple ability to be able to save converted images to another disk. What should happen is that a prompt window with choice 'Yes/No' should display. If a user chooses 'Yes' then a user can then be give a Windows folder-disk saving window. For this feature to exist a tickbox setting in the "Options" named something like 'Prompt to save to folder' in which a user can enable/disable anytime.
- XnShell could incorporate a Resize feature that is more simplified than the 'resize' in full version Xnview. Upon selecting multiple files this would rename itself to 'Batch Resize' or 'Multiple Resize'. In 'Batch/Multiple' resize the window should present the ability to resize only with % or custom % (percent). With the % , XnView could show two window columns that would consist of current un-resized list and second column with a real-time preview for showing exact new sizes.
File's Icon - should not show when highlighting multiple files and right clicking. In future, the window size and GUI to files Icon could be made larger to accommodate a batch session listing multiple filenames in a downward list with and 16x and 48x icon size with of course next to their root (path) file's icon. This batch-multiple feature may be difficult to implement. Duplicate extensions e.g. two .jpg files would not display
. batch-multiple window could look like this:
.. But this is not an important feature
Backup settings feature. A button in the XnShell option to backup all settings to a .reg file or optionally a .ini file (.ini is editable). The button should best look like a drop-down menu button like in recent UsbSafelyRemove app; http://i56.tinypic.com/vrrh44.png
Add XnShell support for full transparency on GFL; http://i42.tinypic.com/15f18r5.png
Add an option to disable showing transparency on the shell context menu for transparent images (disabled by default of course
Add 256x256 (or highest page) icon viewing for .icns MacOS icons (just like as already so for .ico). Some users (like me) work with .icns creation and viewing on Windows platform.
Auto refresh Explorer after each or any 'Rotate'.
A typing cursor or other cursor to view the rest of a long filename in the "File's Icon" window:
An option, for the Uninstall process, to be able to remove all XnShell preferences in the registry (option).
A separate executable, named something like 'shelloptions.exe'. This exe would dynamically link and open the "options" window found in 'XnViewShellExt.dll' so that we can make settings to the application without having to right-click on an image file to get "options" window.
When mass Converting/Rotating/Resizing lot's of image files. Two dialogs should exist, one before the other, that would assist the user in showing that the background process is happening and that most importantly it can be canceled. This is an important feature of functionality to consider for the next version.
