Indeed your suggestions did the trick, but I still think there is something
wrong in terms of user interface design.
First of all what does 100% mean when that configuration option is not checked?
You say that 100% means 100% of the screen width, but is that also the case for
portrait photo's. Anyway we need another name for this.
Secondly there is another confusing thing. I was looking for configuration
option you pointed me add, but I could not find it. Why? Because the subtitle
of the "Album View" configuration page is: "Customize the look of the album
lists". So the problem is that I did not expect this option on this page
because in my opinion it has nothing to do with the looks of the album list.
Another thing that I find wrong is that it says "Embedded preview loads
full-sized images.". What is a "preview"? When I double-click on a image in the
album i would say "digikam views the image" instead of "digikam previews the
image" (I would call a thumbnail something that is a preview). So use the word
"view" instead of "preview". That would also be consistent with the "View"
button in the toolbar.
