Ability to add mega-pixel count to image information

Postby MacSass » Sat May 20, 2017 6:04 pm

Hi,
I really like XnView and finally decided to retire my FastStone Image viewer with it.

The only small thing I´m currently missing is the ability to add the mega-pixel count to the image description that is shown in full-screen mode.
There are really many variables you can add - which is great - but I think that one is missing. I still tend to think "mega-pixels" instead of width/heights, so having that value visiable right away helps me to see if I might have cropped pictures too much.

Obviously that would be a "calculated" field that could be derived from width x heigth and should be rounded to maybe one decimal (e.g. 9.5 mpix).

Hope it´s clear what I´m looking for - otherwise please take a look at FastStone image viewer in full screen mode.

Thanks for building that great piece of SW.

Regards - MacSass

Could be added?

Yes, it is very simple: Just a new menu entry in Settings | View | Info with "Megapixels " (it is a single word like kilogram is a single word). The formula to calculate it is very simple: Image Width x Height / 1000000

Will be added?

I hope so.
