PictView thumbs buggy - only some shown

Post by Georgd » 26 Mar 2010, 15:26

Hi, since I use Salamander on Win 7 64bit, PictView thumbs view (ALT+5) is buggy. I tried v2.52 and v2.53b1. Only for some files the thumbnail is shown, even though all have been created with same camera, also after "recreate EXIF thumbnail" in XnView. It's not only the pics created by me, but also pics from others. Screenshot Image

I need to go to PictView Configuration, tab Advanced, and activate "ignore original thumbs stored in image file", then every file has a thumb but it's reeeaaaaly slow in dirs containing many panoramas (big images) :-( so no acceptable as standard setting.

Any chance that bug will be fixed? Thanks, Georg

Yes, but please provide us at least image which doesn't show the thumbnail.

No big change in 2.53b2 - hoping the next version will do :)

Two years now. What's the result of your analysis? :) A fix would be nice; currently for image folders I can't use salamander :-( as up to a third of all pics have no thumb displayed

It happened with pictures from different cameras and different persons. It happened sometimes that 1/3 of all images had no thumbail in Salamander (see this screenshot or this screenshot), but in Windows Explorer, XnView etc. they worked fine, but those programs are lacking too many file management capabilities. Switching on "ignore original thumbnails stored in image files" was soooo slow. I was really unhappy with the situation so I looked for a workaround and found one: For each image that shows no thumbnails, call Plugins > PictView > Update Thumbnail. Of course, you have to repeat this every time an image has been modified by another program... :( Hence, that workaround makes only sense for picture folders you don't touch any more, i.e. your best-of image collection where everything is edited, rated, geo-tagged etc.
