            Bug ID: 328430
           Summary: Maximum thumbnail size of 256px is too small for big
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified

            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Preview

When I import shots from a trip I usually have a few hundred pictures that I
quickly want to sort and filter by their quality. Therefore I tag them with the
"accepted" (green flag) and "rejected" (red flag) etc.

At the moment I need to open the big preview image in digikam to actually be
able to see some details of the image. That has the bad sideeffect that the
thumbnailbar at the top doesn't show all the details that the thumbnails in the
album preview do. Like filename, status (the green/red flags), tags and so on.

Currently the maximum thumbnail size is limited to 256px in the album preview,
but I don't see any reason why it is set to this value. It would be nice to
increase that value a bit more. I'm working on a 27" with a resolution of
2560x1440, which is not uncommon anymore these days. Having at most three
thumbnails next to each other would be desired, therefore the maximum thumbnail
size should be increased to at least ~800px.

Here is a screenshot of my workspace which should make clear that bigger
thumbnails are more desirable: http://i.imgur.com/I910ZEn.png

Thanks for creating such an awesome photo manager!
