I m puzzled by one or two small things :
* What is the difference between
Images > View selected
Images > View selected in new window
It seems to do the same for me, but maybe IÂm missing something obvious
* When doing a search, when does the category browser appears, and when
does it not ?
IÂm asking this, after reading the fair concerns of Rafael Beccar
who wants to have an easy way to launch the slidedhow on all images
and what you wrote in the TODO list :
- I really would like to do something with pictures found with image search.
E.g., I want to send them by email, but before I have to reduce them in size.
Therefore, most helpful would be (with decreasing importance):
- copy to directory
- move to directory (incl. thumbnails and updating the database)
- create ascii list of path/filenames (this would allow making batch
- export/import of selection - thus make it possible to share part of
Here is an idea on how to handle that :
Add an >>Actions<< entry in the Category browser, alongside with >>Date<< and
>>Search<< we have now.
If I clik on >>Actions<<, the browser shows many items like
>>Slideshow<< or the actions I extracted from the TODO list.
>>Generate HTML<< could also go here, as well as
>>Mark current view as lock<< and its browser
>>Mark all but current view as lock<<
What do you thing of my idea ?
A condition for this to work is that the category browser appears
always after a search. This is currently not always the case, depending I
guess on how much pictures/persons/... you have, but I didnÂt found
a general rule.
(PS: After another reading, mmmh, itÂs perhaps too complicated, an >>Actions<< menu could
probably do the same.)
* A little thing for improving usability :
Say I want to add some infos about the persons present in a photo.
Usually, I do this very quickly thanks the thumbmais, I can select
all photo where a specific person is present.
For the rest, I must see the whole picture. So, I select them and
press V, then Ctrl-1.
Then, i have to quit the <<image configuration>> panel, press next,
then Ctrl-1 again.
It would be great if the previous/next buttons could be used from
the <<image configuration>> panel, just like I can use it if I
press Ctrl-1 from the main panel, only that the image in the viewer
would be updated as well.
