You can make the definition of the cropping and focus area of the folder theme image more user friendly by adding an 'Edit' button to Folder Theme image box (or less user friendly a context menu) .
If you click that button, the theme image should be displayed in a larger window like you see if you open an image in the explorer. Next you can use the cursor to define the area you like to use as theme image as is already done in the 'Cut the edges off to improve your composition' window You have to add a scale factor to get a theme image of the size you want, so for example 3840x800 instead of 1920x400
With this implementation you can remove the Sample shape options in the explorer Set crop focus... pop-up and use that pop-up only for the thumbnail focus, the user has no longer to search for the corresponding theme image thumbnails as is required in the current implementation.
You can also remove the other folder theme image context menu's by adding 2 extra buttons in the opened window.
Already more as a year on the todo list, but still not implemented!
André, I really don't understand your behavior. There's actually always an aggressive undertone in your writing. And then to add an exclamation mark to the sentences as an ultimate demand. Are you really sure this is the way to get your wish come true?
Well Markus, may be I would use such a phrasing in an email, but on a forum you should be concise. An implementation was promised, so you might expect that it is implemented in the next release, but in the meantime there were already 5 new releases.
The current context menu of the theme image is inconsistent and user unfriendly: The 'Reset' and 'Remove' actions are applied to the current folder in an album with folders, but the 'Set Cropping...' action is globally applied to all folder albums without giving a warning. Most users expect that the he 'Set Cropping...' action is also only applied on the current folder. An extra question is required to apply it globally to all folder albums and if it is applied only locally, the settings should be saved for the current folder. And of course a 'Browse' option should be added as already promised here.
