a few first thoughts:

first of all, it looks great.

Personaly I would very rarely (almost never) use a mode with more than 4 
pictures. But if it is possible:

- what happens if you are in 4 view and select number 5. Is the window 
automaticly rearranged or do you need to preselect a view mode?

- And what happens if you are in 6 view and you select a seventh?

In your screenshot everything except ¨Synchronize¨ and ¨Full  screen¨ 
looks greyed out. But ¨Slideshow¨ would be very usefull here too.

4) It would be great if the pictures in the view could be selected 
automaticly if you richtclick within the picture or elseway as the 
action you are going to perform is appllied to to picture the mouse 
pointer is in instead of to the selected picture. Else you have to left 
click to select and subsequently richtclick to perform an action such as 
tag as ¨select¨ or ¨reject¨.

Or alternatively, what do you think of this: go with Tab or Arrow trough 
the picture and use del to either actually delete or add a ¨reject¨ 
tag/flag. Or use the enter key to attach a ¨select¨ tag/flag

5) It is a bit beside this but I think it would be an improvement if 
there is always an option to put images as a new selection on the 
lighttable instead of only ¨add to lightable¨

Thanks for the great work sofar!

 From my point of view no need for left sidebar

That´s great, for this function there is no need for individual zooming 
or panning and synchronized zooming is way better than the magnifier 
tool in Bridge

I am in doubt about this one. If it´s not too hard to implement I would 
prefer to see the name in each picture, though not necessery.

I will try this later, I don´t think it will have to add much to this ideas.
