PositionMap: Request scrollable full-sized image in JCapPM

In JCapPM, single-clicking on the image display brings up an image that just fills the screen, if the original image is too large for the screen.

Double clicking brings up the original image in its full original size, but only part of it shows and there is no way to scroll it. I need to do this to read street signs, identify locations and faces, etc.

I am Using PositionMap 5.7.9 and JAlbum 7.4 under Windows. In Windows, the Preview applet for images is a good example of how I would like this to work. Maybe PositionMap could jst call on the preview applet?

The new version (4.5.3) of JCapPM supports this feature and has been released some minutes ago.

In Windows, the Preview applet for images is a good example of how I would like this to work. Maybe PositionMap could jst call on the preview applet?

No, if PM called the image viewer of Windows, PM wouldn't run on other OS than Windows.
Moreover I find scrollbars too laborious to navigate in an image. Hence the drag & drop & mouse-wheel-scroll solution.
I hope you enjoy it :)

Hi Kaya.

Sorry to be a pain in the a**, but it doesn't work at least on my computer.
Now, when I clic on a picture in JCapPM I have an error and the full picture doesn't show off.
The window opens to display the picture, it has the name of the picture in the blue top part of the window,
but it has 2 red warning triangle and nothing else where the picture (with scroll bars) should be displayed....

Could jsallen confirm this problem ?
Or am I the only one ?

Hi Dersou,

despite the fact that JCapPM can't load the photo, it's the way how it's meant to work when loading the photo is impossible.

However, you shouldn't more loose your captions or descriptions when loading of a photo fails as mentioned in this thread:
http://jalbum.net/forum/thread.jspa?threadID=28495&tstart=0

Loading of a photo may fail when the Java application (JA or JCapPM) has not enough memory as described in this thread:
http://jalbum.net/forum/thread.jspa?threadID=28465
In such a case the application must fail gracefully and this is what JCapPM does since v4.5.3

Hi Kaya.

I have checked with JAlbum 8.0.9 & PM 5.8.2 and guess what ?
Everything works perfectly....
I have the preview from JCapPM and when I clic on the picture I can see the great job you've done to let us scroll easily in the picture.

So, once again, I see that the problem seems to be in JAlbum 8.1.6 and my PC...
I could remain with JAlbum 8.1.6 and wait for a future version, but I'd like to implement widgets...
I'll try to buy some extra memory this week end to extend from 1 to 2 Go.

Thanks.
