Option request for folder thumbnails.

Post by CK » Fri May 05, 2006 11:58 am

Hey everyone. I've searched but haven't found anything, basically I think the folder thumbnails are a cool idea but they look a bit ugly so what it be possible to have an option so they handle like .7z's do (like a .zip file).

Here's an example:

(Basically in that .7z archive there's like 100 images but it only shows one, not four).

Update:

Thanks so much! XnView rules, keep up the good work!

But it's not easy to see if it's a folder or not!

But it won't have a .extension name though. Oh well, just a thought!

The idea is good, but one still should see that a folder is a folder. What about something like this:

Some people like viewing 4 images per folder, some just 1 image, so there should be definetely an option.
