No shadow for the thumb-nails

Post by Clo » Tue Dec 20, 2005 8:25 pm

:) Hello !

- I have set the option, like one can see below :

———Image

¤ But I don't get any shadow on the board of thumb-nails :

- Let's notice that here are small pics as 21*21 - 24 BPP, there is room enough around to draw the shadow, I guess…

No problem here with tiny (16x16) GIFs and 32x32 ICO files.

Shadows require true color. They don't show up when just using 16bit display.

:) Hello B. !

- Right! But I guess this is annoying. I'll add a note in my Manual…

- I use 16 BPP at display here because the shared memory, and 32 BPP (24 BPP is not available here with 1024*768) is really too greedy at RAM.

- Thank you !

:mrgreen: Kind regards,

I disagree. There is an incoherence here, since the DropShadow effect can work with 16 BPP. So, this is an issue anyway.
Moreover, such a limitation¦lacuna should need at least a note in the setting dialogue like i.e. <needs 24BPP minimal>

There may be incoherence, but there is no problem to fix.
Drop Shadow option works by design only in 24-32bpp. It only lacks proper description. We may argue if it is good design, but that's another matter.
Drop Shadow effect may work even for 8bpp and that's OK as well.
