Do

Can GNOME Do show thumbnail previews of files?

Asked by Miguel Pires da Rosa

Is there a plan to support thumbnailing of images while navigating through directories?

When I locate a directory of photos, the names of the photos pretty much are all irrelevant if I want to search for a specific one and they're all starting with DSC.

You should use Nautilus/Thunar or Dolphin to navigate directories.

In nautilus go to:

     Edit -> Preferences -> Preview

Then choose the option that better fit your needs: Never, Always, Local Files Only.

I know I can see thumbnailed images in nautilus.

Maybe I didn't explain myself correctly:

In gnome Do, one can "locate...photos of prague" and it shows - with the help of locatefiles plugin - the contents of that directory. What I was asking was if it is planned for a feature that while gnome-do is showing the hundreds of pictures within the directory, those images one chosen appear thumbnailed in the same gnome-do instance.

Yes, I understand. This actually used to be a feature in GNOME Do (thumbnailing image files) but until I figure out why the app leaks memory when it loads images as pixbufs, and how to do so asynchronously so that thumbnail loading doesn't make Do feel unresponsive, this feature won't be reintroduced. If anyone here wants to look into it and send me a patch, that would be great!
