Shortcut to switch specific image when comparing

Post by sogangee »

Up to 4 images can be compared at the same time in side by side or toggle between (Check "Use tabs"). When comparing more than 2 images, often need to toggle between image 1 and image 3, for example. I can choose image 2 and 3 using mouse, but in that case, I have to move my eye to the mouse cursor and then come back to the image every time toggling. If a shortcut is supported to select a specific image to toggle (ex. Alt + 1, 2, 3, or 4), it would be really helpful.

Very much "yes, please". Keyboard shortcuts to switch between 1-4 images and a shortcut to switch between tabbed mode and side-by-side mode is what I miss most. Shortcuts for various zoom levels would also be useful (and the possibility to set arbitrary zoom levels to better compare different resolution images).

I keep going back to the Faststone Image Viewer just for the comparison tool, but I would prefer staying with XnViewMp for all image viewing needs.

+1 (Sounds like a simple and important enhancement to me.)
