Colors for Thumbnails, Overlay Icons [solved]

Post by michel038 »

Hi,
Sometimes, I try to find at a glance photos containing GPS data
Or photos with missing XMP data ...

With coloured icons, it would be much easier to see if a colour is missing, rather than grey small text !
See an example of colours on the right side

That's it
I created a "icons" folder under Xnviewmp
There I copied the sample you gave, named info.png

It works, I can change colours !

Ok, thank you

We have to reduce height to 11 pixels, and width 165 px.
(anyone can copy this sample, and paste it into icons folder )

Thanks! I love these, but unfortunately despite putting them into UI/icons-48 they're still showing as the old grey style icons for me... any idea what I'm doing wrong please? :(

Create a new folder named "icons" ... and use this one, instead of using existing folders
Copy info.png into this folder
restart XnViewMp

Thank you! :) I've done that, is there a setting or a place to point the application to the new folder?

sorry, I've forgotten to say "icons" folder must be in xnviewmp installation folder
Are you using windows ? Is Xnviewmp installed in C:\Program Files\Xnviewmp ?
in this configuration, info.png must be placed in C:\Program Files\Xnviewmp\icons\ , and is automatically used .
