Small thumbs in Lighttable

Post by JimiV » 22 Sep 12 16:05

OK, I've selected 4 images (cr2) files. I select Light table. All I get is tiny little images. I don't see how to make the thumbnails full size. I've seen it on individuall images, but not in the LT.

Who thought it would ever be a good idea to have these tiny images display anyway?? And is there a global setting to display image previews that are actually worth looking at?

Thanks

Hi JimV

Not sure what the problem may be ?

Have you tried clicking on the Zoom - View Image Best in the Toolbar at the bottom of one of the images in Light Table

If you can't see the toolbar hit the Up Arrow

Hi JimV

Brilliant - Just some info please

Did you migrate you thumbs database from V5 ?

If so were you storing previews in the V5 Database ?

Darn!

I was hoping that the problem was that the previews weren't stored in the database (as it came from v5)

BTW if the size of the previews stored in V5 were bigger than 1680 (the max size for Supreme) its worth rebuilding all the thumbs and previews in Supreme - it will "right size" them for supreme and also save disk space.

And of course if the previews were smaller than what you (one) has set in Supreme then a thumb rebuild should also be on the cards.

But still don't know why your problem existed :-(
