Hi. I bought SimpleViewer-Pro yesterday, and have the following suggestions, in no particular order:
Re the GUI:
- I'd like to be able to set the image resizing quality to 100%; the current limit seems to be 99%.
- The dark-on-dark scroll bars hard to see (when they go from gray to near black).
- The "Drop Shadow Strength" should be a checkbox, if its only valid values are 0 and 1.
- I'd like to see a recently-opened build list for reopening galleries, perhaps the last 10 or so projects; currently, only the path to the last-saved gallery is shown.
- I think the "First Image Index" should be 1-relative, not 0-relative; you don't show "Image 0 of 9" for 10 images - you display Image 1 of 10.
- I'd like to have the image drop shadow based solely on the image, not on the frame of the image. (I have some drop shadow questions, and I'll be posting them in the main v2 forum shortly.)
- I'd like to have the image frame made proportionally smaller as the browser window size decreases. If you resize the window to something like 800x600, the main image is much smaller (of course) but the frame becomes (relatively and noticeably) much larger.
- I'd like to see the number of rows of a vertical thumbstrip changed on the fly, based on browser window size... just as the main image gets resized. If you have a row number too high for a small browser window, the top and bottom thumbs are not shown (and neither are the thumbstrip navigation buttons, unless you float them; this makes changing thumbstrip pages impossible, as there isn't a vertical scroll bar, either). You'll notice that the (yes, single-row) MatrixSlide thumbstrip changes in this regard.
- For non-Flash viewing, I'd like "page x of y" changed to "Page x of y"
- I'd like to be able to set a page's favicon (without my having to embed the SV-generated code).
- I'd like to be able to supply an icon, rather than text, for Back navigation (which I'm using as a homepage link).
- Or, I'd like to be able to add a Home (or Back) nav button to the image nav button group. You see how nice this looks on my MS page?
- I'd like a smaller "Triangle" size button for thumbnail navigation (i.e., similar in size to the image nav arrows).
- [Edit, almost forgot:] I'd like image nav buttons for First Picture and Last Picture in a gallery.
