Different Album Art thunbnail sizes & grouping

Post by karimleo » Wed Jan 30, 2008 2:16 pm

For the album in the main window would be nice. I'd say the size they are right now would be a good "Medium"

"Small", "Very Small" and "Large" would be great options.

Maybe something to make the selection easier would be a drop down box with the 4 different sizes when you click on the Thumbnail icon in the view bar.

I especially would like the Very Small ones so I could fit more into the main window when browsing.

Also removing the Grouping would save more screen space.

Anybody else agree with me on this one?

I agree that it should exist;

1) A way to determine size of cached images. (and location)
2) A slider (skinnable) to resize album art size on-the-go. Just like Windows Vista.

Not in the Album Art views.

Personally I think 4 different sizes would be great. Winamp 5.5 has it and it works great. You simply click the "Album Art" button and a little sub menu appears asking you which size you would like and presto! The thumbnails all change instantly.

Vista's approach is in my opinion the best.

Still being an XP user I am not too use to it. However I have seen the Vista method but it looks more complicated to implement. If it can be done it would be great but if the Winamp method uses less resources and works well I would opt for that.

Try WMP11's resizing method then. That should also be possible.

I just wanted to second this request. I like the new Album Art view, but the thumbnails are smaller than I would like on my display.
