Settings - thumbnail - overlay icon - add custom positioning

Post by user0 »

XnViewMP 1.6.2 64bit
Windows11 (23H2), display resolution 3840x2160, win scaling 150%


Settings - thumbnail - overlay icon
it's only possible to enable/disable Browser's thumbnail overlay icons

Suggestion

A
  • add custom positioning functionality
    - Top left/center/right
    - Center left/right
    - Bottom left/center/right
  • add functionality to change Spacing between icons
    - starting from -1, so they can share single border (see Lighroom example)
    - guess it shall be per section basis
  • add functionality to change icons Size

B
  • add thumbnail Header and Footer
    this way the icons can be on a solid background and not block the image

C
  • (optional) add functionality to position icons vertically (see DxO)



Example
  • Capture One

  • ACDSee

  • DxO Photolab

  • Lightroom

  • darktable

  • FastStone

Y-E-S-S-S! I would like it very much.
The idea of ​​the spacing between the icons and above all their size is interesting.

The same options would be needed for full screen too!

"B" is a good idea, but with customizable background color.
I don't like the vertical "C" icons, but that depends on personal preference, monitor size, etc.
