Dark theme

Post by xnview »

Currently we have 'Fusion dark' as dark theme, what do you think that must be improved?

I think to have icons for dark theme like that

1. I think there is no need to change any icon, except the "toggle slider function: thumbnail size" icon on the right corner.
just to need to change the color so in fusion dark it is more visible, light blue color like the slider color would be nice.

2. when I say dark theme improvement, it means that all of the app must turn dark. the default setting doesn't turn everything dark, I always change color from settings. I attach some screenshots to how I set the color.

EDIT:
3. dark title bar, would be nice too :)

J'ai constaté que le thème sombre n'est pas assez sombre, qu'il y a trop de blanc dans la fenêtre et que lorsque des éléments sont sélectionnés ou mis en surbrillance, il est encore trop clair pour que je puisse l'utiliser confortablement la nuit. Voir ci-dessous.

I have found that the dark theme is not dark enough, there is too much white in the window, and when items are selected or highlighted it is still too light for me to use comfortably at night. See below.

Il serait idéal d'avoir un thème encore plus sombre, n'ayez pas peur d'utiliser du noir pur dans les éléments de l'UI, le contraste est important mais avoir un thème vraiment "sombre" est optimal pour certains. Le texte blanc sur fond noir est souvent plus facile à lire et à voir pour moi et moins de fatigue pour les yeux. J'ai modifié ma capture d'écran précédente comme un exemple rapide de ce à quoi je m'attendais à l'origine du thème sombre, ce n'est pas un exemple parfait mais devrait suffire comme guide rapide. Ce serait bien d'avoir un thème avec des variations de couleurs facultatives comme "Dark Standard" (comme dans l'exemple) puis Dark + violet (avec des couleurs d'accent violet), Dark + rouge, Dark + bleu, etc.

It would be ideal to have an even darker theme, don't be afraid to use pure black in the UI elements, the contrast is important but having a really "dark" theme is optimal for some. White text on a black background is often easier to read and see for me and less strain on the eyes. I edited my previous screenshot as a quick example of what I originally expected from the dark theme, it's not a perfect example but should suffice as a quick guide. It would be nice to have a theme with optional color variations like "Dark Standard" (as in the example) then Dark + purple (with purple accent colors), Dark + red, Dark + blue, etc.

Un meilleur contraste sur les barres de défilement serait excellent, et peut-être quelque chose qui pourrait également bénéficier des couleurs de surbrillance/accent.

Better contrast on the scroll bars would be great, and maybe something that could benefit from the highlight / accent colors as well.

De nombreux appareils disposent désormais d'écrans bénéficiant d'un noir pur comme les écrans OLED. Le "mode sombre" d'Android 11 est agréablement sombre.

Many devices now have screens that benefit from a pure black like OLED screens. Android 11's "dark mode" is pleasantly dark.

I have attempted to translate for better context, if anything doesn't make sense let me know and I will try to rephrase/improve it.

I totally agree to Xeddius. I also turned down some colors that didn't turn dark by default. Don't forget the background of the Preview Window. Also I think I changed the font color to a light grey for not so necessary items which is pretty easy on the eye.

The ICC symbol could be adjusted.

The clickable Tag Corner could be adjusted.

That is much better on the eyes and is a big improvement! Thank you!
My final request is a second "dark" theme which is darker.

I have edited the previous screenshot quickly it is not perfect but shows an example of a very dark theme.

Yes, this makes the scrollbar much more noticeable.
