I applied your patches and they seem to be working nicely. Thanks!

I find it useful, too, but others might not. I guess it calls for an
option quite like "show labels in thumbnail view".
Probably it does.
BTW: Showing the full path exceeds the size of the info box, and I
really don't want to have scroll bars there.
Replacing the 2nd line in Utilities::createInfoText() (in
QString text = i18n("<b>File Name: </b> ") +
results in displaying the same label in the info box that is used in the
thumbnail view as well (file name without path and ending).
Actually, I specifically want path and ending -- I have been known to
have multiple files with the same basename but different endings, and
I'm using KPhotoAlbum to store photos from multiple cameras. Maybe it
should be configurable.
(Personally, I hate the notion of programs trying to be "friendly"
about not displaying too much information -- I'd rather have
everything and decide what is and isn't interesting to me.)
