Video thumbnails gallery - few improvements

Post by user0 »

XnViewMP 1.6.1 64bit
Windows11 (22H2), display resolution 3840x2160, win scaling 150%


Video thumbnails gallery
few main points:
- inconvenient to save galleries for multiple files
- no way to change text size in timecode
- difficult to read timecode when its color matches color of content

Suggestion

  • File info
    • use Spacing around File info
      so there is unified border around whole gallery (thumbnails and info)
    • change default text size from 18 to 14
    • swap Bit rate and Duration
    • improve text readability by splitting Info into 2 columns:
      - labels align left OR right
      - values align right

  • Timecode
    • make text visible on content of the same color
      - add Outline OR bg behind text
  • Output
    • add Output folder/format functionality
    • folder behaviour with multiple files:
      - if all files from the same location - show this folder in control
      - if files from different locations - leave control blank, that means source folders in use
      - if user sets folder manually - use given folder


Examples
