Robert, though I haven't tried out your patches yet: Thanks a
bunch! Those (faster display, 1:1 scaling) are exactly those
features which I missed most and which made switch to other image
viewers (and even consider digikam...) for browsing.
As for the scaling: I found it also useful in some viewers to be
able to scale an image to a size smaller than the screen size
(i.e. display with black borders). This allows to judge the
impression that an image would make in a certain print size. Some
images are OK for specific print sizes (whther small or large) and
The other thing I think would be good with the zooming in and out
would be to zoom to fixed multipliers or alternatively sqrt(2) each
step. The current zoom steps never result in integral multipliers.
But that's less important than being able to scale down.
