"Global Magnification" lock for Thumbnails in Image Tree

Post by Hanginon » July 11th, 2019, 7:55 am

Is there a way to to have all the Thumbnails in the Image Tree "locked together" (as an option) so that when you change the displayed magnification of the image you are working on (as well as it's position in the frame), all the others are altered the same way? IMHO, this would be a real help when quickly comparing how each change altered the image.

I'm a new user - please forgive my ignorance if this option already exists.

Lastly. The "Anti-Spam" threshold setting is too low. You should be able to Preview a Post you are composing a few times, without getting locked out.

Sorry, there is no way to do that currently although it is an interesting feature suggestion. A problem with trying to synchronize zooming and scrolling across multiple images is that some transformations (such as Crop, Warp or Resize) change the dimensions of the image and there is no way to synchronize the views in this case since the images do not line up.

Unfortunately, the message board gets bombarded weekly with hundreds of spam attacks. Even with aggressive anti-spam settings a few get through from time to time. Its a jungle out there.

It turns out I was able to add a feature for the next release that should let you do what you were asking for. Thanks for the suggestion.

If you hold down the Alt key while clicking on a thumbnail in the image browser (or on its caption bar), the new image is zoomed and scrolled the same as the previously current image, assuming it was the same size. This lets you compare the same region of interest in multiple images by Alt-clicking on the image thumbnails.
