New Image Gallery Observations / problems

Congratulations on the New Image Gallery addition, I think it's got a lot of potential. I especially like the use of a storage group for the picture location, as I think storage groups are a great asset of MythTV. I guess this is still a work in progress, but since I've tried it I think I should state the things I observed.

  • The menu entry is not available on the Classic Menu that I use, only on the Default.
  • I guess it was created on a 1280x720 screen, because on that the resolution the thumbnail window fills the screen. On my 1920x1080 monitor it leaves a lot of area uncovered.
  • When I enter a folder with many pictures, on the top right corner I can see 1 of N. Just on the left a counter starts until it reaches the N total. Is this reduntant? It stops counting upon pressing an arrow and continues after.
  • The first time I enter a folder, only the top left five thumbnails show (the folder plus 4 pictures) while the counter is counting. I guess it needs time to create the thumbnails, but I would suggest a message instead of only 5 pictures?
  • The pictures show uncentered, their left and top side is beyond the screen borders, leaving about 1/6th of the right side background showing. However,the bottom side is aligned to the bottom of the screen as it should.
  • The Settings screen has layout problems, the storagegroup text area and sorting method selection box extend over the right side of their rectangular area. The "Empty database" label overlaps its tickbox. I have the language set to Greek so maybe its the looooong words to blame?

Thanks for your time,

Most of what you've noted are theme related and will be fixed, we're also aware of other issues and are working to fix those too. This new feature should be considered as work in progress for now, probably safe to assume we know of the problems and fixes are in the pipeline.

No worries, thanks for the update. I just thought I could share my input.
