Right

Maybe show the first picture of the selection at 2/3 of the size of the
preview picture frame, and show two windows in cascade behind it,
so it's more obvious that you are setting properties for multiple pictures.


PS : there are more important improvements though (like better import feature,
or doing a flash demo like the ones made by  Nat for Beagle here
http://nat.org/demos/ which will explain much better than a set
of screenshots how great, effective and fast KimDaBa is)
