Sorting Gifs: Animated, multi image, Fix

Post by brotondi »

A way to sort gifs would be nice: Animated, Multi-Image, Fix

Perhaps easiest way: Add "Infos" in Detailview which can be used for this Info and others. Sorting by this Column then solves the Problem.

Another way, only a help: Properties = "50x50,256 (animated)" or "... (multi image)"

... Interesting for someone else?

Thanks!

An other way, is to use categories (already implemented in Xnview).

Animated cursors are easily distinguishable from regular cursors: They have different file extensions (ANI vs. CUR). With formats like GIF you won't know unless you view the file. The same goes for TIFFs or PSDs: Only when a document is opened will XnView tell the user that “this image contains multiple pages. Please use ‘Previous page’ and ‘Next page’ to navigate between the pages.”

XnView needs an animation overlay icon and/or multi-page indicator*. (In ThumbsPlus they're called “decorations”.)

  • Layered documents

    • Paint Shop Pro
*Tools » Options... » Browser » Thumbnails » Icon info » File info

:) Hello !
…Multi-page documents
• TIFF
• DjVu
… and also :
*.ICO
*.DCX
*.LDF (Luratech)…
• When discussing about the A-PNGs, I noticed already that it's the same extension,
hence it's impossible to distinguish them from the simple PNG pics ;)
- An overlay icon should do the trick, without flooding the thumb nail bottom,
since the most concerned formats have not any Exif and the like…

• Well, three pages more here in sight (at least) to find the right icon ! Image

I'm counting on your help to find every last one of 'em. :wink:

No one wants the thumbnails to be cluttered with info icons. Users should be able to turn them on and off individually.

Oh yes, it's going to be a wild ride. :mrgreen:
