Gamma corrected thumbnails.

An option to gamma correct thumbnails might be useful for old dim monitors.

@Clo

This might not be an expert feature. You may want to display a screenful of only very large thumbnails and nothing else- not even labels. Then such an option becomes more useful.

:) Hello B. !

- Extra INI-entries are not specially for expert-users ! I use that for years in Total Commander, and I can say you that even fresh newbies add some simple ones… In example, having a flag to set as either "1" or "0" = Yes / No.
- For the case you quote, an average correction value could be defined by Pierre, then set or not…

Shouldn't the same Gamma correction be applied to both image view and thumbnails by default?

Note:
Currently Gamma correction can be set in options dialog, category "View".

I also think that linking them is better than seperate controls. Why use a giant hammer on a small nail?
