Re: Usability: Toolbar consistent in all modes

I agree with dismissal of do-nothing informational buttons (about, options, properties). Also flip horizontal/vertical, & goto frame for reasons given. View mode dismissal suggestions: Batch processing (works better for browser mode where files can be highlighted). Search (works better in browser mo...

Re: Jpeg lossless rotate, file size decreases 10%

BTW, MP's clean metadata function can un-optimize an image. I don't think the v.1.9x(Win32) version can do this.

Toolbar spacers

The program has vertical line seperators... but a 'spacer' item which provides more distance between buttons would be interesting. Filler. An item about nothing to make it look less crowded?

Re: UI: Default toolbar in image view mode: More buttons

I think far seperation of any button involving a follow-up saving action would look less busy and better emphasize the common viewing functions. Example with save button at rightmost: [x] [x] [x] [x] [x] [x] [x] | [y] [y] [y] | [z] x=viewing types y=edit types z=save Perhaps two sets of buttons coul...

Re: Jpeg lossless rotate, file size decreases 10%

I suspect browser rotate always uses optimize. Tested by rotating jpeg two full turns in browser by 90 degree steps: 21,338 Bytes; 552x176 (original) +90(cw) 16,136 Bytes; 176x552 +90(cw) 16,354 Bytes; 552x176 +90(cw) 16,144 Bytes; +90(cw) 16,334 Bytes; +90(cw) 16,136 Bytes; +90(cw) 16,354 Bytes; +9...

Re: Question About Converting Jpgs to Jpeg2000

I see no extra info retained. The information dialog which appears upon saving is correct: "Be careful, saving in this format will lose existing metadata!"

Re: Prevent from openning

Limiting to only images is shown below. After starting from browser, set small toolbar filter to custom. Only check images in options... browser>file list

Re: UMPlayer - mplayer front-end fork of SMPlayer

It looks like that fork knifed mencoder from its features. I haven't seen a difference in playback between mplayers so far.

Re: Batch rename with action list

I like this idea of one function teaching the other. Both transformations and renaming.
If someone can pick up on current filename template button ">", then why not this?
It looks more modern than v.1.x style dialog. Drag and drop ready.

Re: Why i can't open my bmf file

Confirmed. But, handling of files has been described as being limited to preview (thumbnail) in older topics (as they are proprietary):
- Corel .bmf files
- Still can not read BMF format
- Handling limited Corel format support
