Description Hans Meier 2006-07-21 11:47:23 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.3)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

Right now, there are only fixed sizes of the thumbnails available. A better solution would be to scale the thumbnails smoothly, as in F-Spot or iPhoto. 

First, it looks much better. Second, resizing the thumbnails is much faster (only the biggest thumbnail has to be created once, and all smaller versions are just scaled down). Third, the user can see the thumbnails in exactly the size and number per screen he/she wants.

Has to be said but from a purely aesthetic point of view I'd really like this.

SVN commit 645545 by cgilles:

digiKam from trunk : add a new slider on the status bar to set finelly the thumbs size in album icon view, like iphoto do.
Now, you can set the thumbs size by step of 8 pixels between 32 to 256 instead the old 5 const sizes hardcoded (32, 64, 100, 160, 256)
