Different MIME should have slightly different colors of thumbnail backgrounds. It would make easier to recognize RAW and jpg in RAW+JPG soup, or in other similar situations (eg. videos).

xniew use a very small icons superimposed over the thumb to identify if Exif or Iptc are embeded in picture. 

The same way can be use in digiKam to identify memie type of item (RAW, JPG, PNG, TIF, AVI, MPG, etc...) It very easy to implement (KDE3 and KDE4).

I just need few small icons ready to use.

I will make them. But I don't think icons are good thing to 
differentiate between mime-types. Too much noise.

I think these icons should be optional. Sometime it could be useful but most of the time it will just hide the pictures. 

Comment 4 Bernhard Rode 2007-07-26 13:14:33 UTC
I even think, that the average user doesn't really care about which format the file is. 
He is only interested if it is a movie or an image.
I think it would be ok to have Images without and movies with an icon (oxygen maybe) over it.

p.e. kdelibs/pics/oxygen/scaleable/apps/kmplayer.png

As you can see here :


Icon view as now an option to show file format over thumbnail.

Using a color as thumb background to identify file format is not very elegant and will bloat GUI...
