Png transprency in thumbnails

Post by Alain » Fri Oct 10, 2014 1:12 pm

Hello all,

In my old Xnview, I had the png thumbnails displaying the transparency, may we do that in the MP version ?

Thanks by advance.

Hello Alain

Are Use transparent index (<=8bits) and Use alpha channel activated in the View menu of viewer mode?
You may also want to enable Use checkerboard pattern as background in Tools » Settings... » View » View.

Thanks for the reply.

I did all that and I get transparency into the previiew windows, but not in the thumbnails.

Other ideas ?

Rebuild thumbnails in the View menu of browser mode should do the trick.

Sorry, I should have been more specific: Could you please also post a screenshot of XnView Classic, so we can see the effect that you are trying to achieve.

Thanks, Alain. I get it now (and learned something new along the way).

Unfortunately, this is currently not possible in MP. Please add your support the topic mentioned in my previous post.

Thanks for the reply,
Maybe it will be implrement in a next version. I know than the .psd files are hugely used into the Adobe world, but in other PAO worlds the.png is very usefull, so I guess that the thumnails transparency for PNG will be highly appreciated by a lot of PAO actors.

About your question about support, I am sorry but I don't understand what is your request, please explain a little bit, my English is very bad.

thanks again.

I just posted a link to your request in “SVG thumbnails of white designs”, because the more users ask for a certain feature, the greater the chances are that Pierre (the developer of XnView) will implement it.
