Thumbnail Size

Select the size in pixels you want your thumbnails to be. Available predefined options are: Small, Normal, Large and Very Large; respectively. 140, 160, 180, and 220 pixels.

 

You can set any custom value by entering it in the input box behind the selection field. The thumb size can be specified between 30 and 1000 pixels. Keep in mind that specifying a value above 160 will slow the thumbnail building process down. This is because IDimager uses existing Exif thumbnails first. Those thumbnails are normally sized at 160 pixels. If a larger value is specified, IDimager will have to open the full image in order to build a thumbnail for it. That is slower.

 

After changing the thumb size, you may need to refresh the thumbnails in the Collection Viewer by pressing  [Ctrl]+[T] once you closed the options dialog.

 

Thumb Storage Quality

Here you can set the quality of the thumbnails. Thumbnails are stored and displayed by IDimager as JPG images. This setting determines the storage quality of the thumbnails. A larger value will result in a larger catalog.

 

Default Sort Order

Select the default sort order for collections. This is the sort order that IDimager will use when you first pen a collection. As soon as you change the sort order with the sort button above the Collection Viewer then that sort order is persistent and will be used instead of the default sort order.

 

The Default Sort Order can be defined as "ascending" or "descending"

 

Display hover thumbnail indicators

Hover thumbnail indicators are the indicators that appear interactively when the mouse is placed over a thumbnail. With this option you can switch the hover indicators off.

 

Display image hover info

Enable this option if you want IDimager to display a hover information panel when the mouse is placed over a thumbnail. When this option is selected then you can click the button to the right of this option to define the content of the information panel. The information panel can be configured to use mini-HTML and macro commands.

 

Custom info for selected thumbs

Enable this option if you want IDimager to generate additional custom information on the selected thumb's area itself (below the thumb picture). Once you select this option, you can click the button to the right to open the mini-HTML editor.
