Re: Nouns, Verbs, Prepositions & Logins

Indeed, a 'log book' was devised to record the passage of a number of logs - timber, wooden logs - tied to a rope that was dropped over the side of a ship at sea to measure speed. Logs tied at fixed spaces on the rope meant that in a certain period of time, measured by a sand-glass, I expect, a cert...

Re: Evidence of Donation

How are we going, Pierre?
A donation 'thank you' marker.
Helmut and I are trying to start a revolution - to your benefit.
I don't mind minimal additional text in title-bar - what about a symbol? A D[tick]* symbol?

Is there a 'thank you' international emoji?

Misconceptions in this wonderful language of ours obtain every day, like everyday, may or may not, aggravate, agreeance, infer, incredulous, disinterested, fulsome, irregardless, literally, criteria, simplistic, effect/affect, lie/lay, fewer versus less; many more..

Evidence of Donation

I'd like to make a donation to Pierre and his collaborators for his XnV programs but I would like some evidence of my contribution. I'd like some integrated evidence of my being a donor because: 1. I often forget what programs I've contributed to (and only occasionally do I want to do it repeatedly....

Nouns, Verbs, Prepositions & Logins

Just redirectiing nerdiness away from tech for a moment, in the light of the Microsoft grammarians' managing to influence Windows 10's Start menu - an item on the user's icon on the far left on the Start menu is now 'Sign out', 'Sign' being the verb, the action, that is offered as a choice, and 'out...

Re: Tidying up straightened book pages

I appreciate that you've done the image-capture already, but it might be worth starting again and saving yourself all the processing discovered here. The vehicle I'd suggest your doing the job again with is Office Lens - an app. Windows Phone, iPhone, other. It straightens up trapeziums that the cam...

Re: Resize (Batch) Inconsistent in Results

You're a great curator, XnTriq. :) Many thanks. I'm settling in to the new meme determining my understanding of resizing, Hs and Ws, and fits. (BTW, the MP Ctrl-C usage still mystifies me. If I go outside to admire my new car, don't don't go out and admire my new car's data.. An image is, to all int...

Re: Resize (Batch) Inconsistent in Results

Yes, XnTriq, that seems to have solved the matter - oddly enough. I stayed away from that technique because it implied that the output would be square. 800x800 but with 'Keep ratio'. Which would be subordinate? I suspect I'll just have to put it down to the dialect of English called 'French'. :? Qui...

Resize (Batch) Inconsistent in Results

For quite a while now, XnView has failed to properly resize all selected photos in batch operations. It's now worth documenting, I believe. Upon selecting a set of random photos, images of all shapes and sizes, I have, today, set a batch process running that I hoped would output resized images with ...

Re: Show viewing offset in image information

Hi, -snip- Thanks, Yossi About "open images from different directories" - you can do that by eg. using Tag box. [emphasis/colour added] About the other thing: you said that "it's easier to spot differences when comparing images by alternating between them" - why that? Do you wan...

Re: iPhone Photos Appear To Be Overweight

Thanks for the suggestion, cday, but - no. Nothing much changed. I tried again with the exact set of jpeg options that you illustrated, even on a different set of originals, and the proportions were about the same. 42 MB for 24 files versus 24 megs for the same 100% resized output. In fact, with not...

iPhone Photos Appear To Be Overweight

Jpeg photos here imported from an iPhone 4 can be resized by XnView, by '100%', becoming files of half their former size - without any apparent visual or dimensional changes. These photos originate from iOS vn 6.1.3 in an iPhone 4; they are imported via Windows Live Photo Gallery 2012 and manipulate...

Re: Configuring External Editor and Open Functions F3 F4

I must admit that I didn't take this any further, until today, when the absence of any reference to the F3 and F4 function keys in Help annoyed me enough to reawaken my pursuit of it. Even after more sweat and gnashing of teeth I forgot that I had asked the question four years ago, and so it's worth...

Descriptions For Addons & Plugins

There's a mass of addons and plugins provided in the Extended download of XnView - but there's precious little information describing what they are, that I can find. Is there any chance a list could be drawn up providing these missing descriptions? Often in an installer there's a line or two describ...

Re: Sad news

Maybe it was a language thing but I found him quarrelsome. When a former workmate responded to a poster's reference to language with a reference to language, Clo accused him of 'bordering on an insult' and had him banned. Ridiculous behaviour. Belligerent. Rest in peace, Claude, free from perceived ...
