As you mentioned, this was done to be able to set the layout in the ctor, 
because you normally don't change the layout later. 
I have no problem with setters, but I really guess this will be much more 

We can also do it like it is used in Digikam::EditorToolSettings. One enum for 
everything, like so:

enum ToolCodes {

We still can have defaults, but you don't have to provide them all the time, 
only the things you want to change.
The widget could be called like this:

ImagesList* imgl = new ImagesList(this, ButtonsBelow | AutoLoad);

You just combine the things you want, the default is to turn them off or in 
case of the buttons, display them on the right.
