Ask for confirm before deleting images

Select this option if you want IDimager to ask you for confirmation before deleting images. It is recommended to deselect this option only if you have enabled “Deleted images go to the windows recycle bin”.

 

Deleted images go to the Windows Recycle Bin

Select this option if you want IDimager to move deleted images to the Windows Recycle Bin. With this option disabled, IDimager will permanently delete the files from the file system

 

JPG Publish Quality

Enter the image quality for JPEG images. This quality will be used to publish thumbnails and images to the web, or when transferring images to photo sharing websites like PicasaWeb/Flickr/Facebook/Zenfolio/Smugmug.

The higher the value, the better the quality, but the bigger the file size. 85% means 85% quality or 15% compression.

 

JPG Save Quality

Enter the image quality for JPEG images. This quality will be used as the default value when saving edited JPEG images. This value does not effect the publish quality. Those two quality settings are separated because often people like to save images in high quality, but publish in a lower quality. The higher the value, the better the quality, but the bigger the size. 85% means 85% quality or 15% compression.

 

Set this value to Custom and the slide bar behind this field will appear, allowing you to select any value between 0% and 100% quality.

 

Remark: Digital Cameras use around 97% quality to store their images in a Fine quality.

 

Status bar text content

When a thumbnail is selected in the Collection Viewer, the status bar displays some basic information about that image. By clicking the button you will be able to design the text that appears in the status bar.

 

The mini-HTML Editor allows you to design your custom text by using a HTML markup language with a subset of the full HTML (hence the name mini-HTML). In the Editor you can also use macro commands. By right clicking in the mini-HTML editor's entry field, you can lookup the different available commands.

 

The mini-HTML editor also allow you to enter inline scripts. These are custom pieces of application code that can be entered between %code and %/code commands.

Auto save active workspace

Use this option and IDimager will save the workspace when the application is closed down.

 

Measurement System

Choose between English and Metrics. This setting is used by the printer-feature to interpret sizes as inches (English) or as cm (Metrics).

 

GUI Language

Select your preferred language. Options displayed are the available language packs, currently installed. By default IDimager comes with translations for English, Dutch, German, and Russian.

 

Temporary File Folder

Select the folder here that you'd like IDimager to use for temporary files. By default it is set to your Windows system temporary file folder.

 

Display a login dialog on startup

Enable this option (Professional Edition only) to get a login dialog when the application is started. It is recommended to use this option when you either want to protect access to your catalog or when you use with multiple databases.
