The very popular donation-ware file manager BBFileScout has just been updated to version 0.6.5 which adds a feature that many will be interested in. The application is under active development which is why we keep mentioning it. This latest version adds thumbnail support for images that you can enable or disable in the options. The app will show you a 128 pixel preview of the image in the folder if you so desire kind of like the default RIM file viewer. This more or less fixes the last shortcoming of BBFileScout compared to the native RIM file editor. Sorry for the lack of screenshots but my MacBook is acting up for some reason…
From the change log:
- Thumbnail support for images (if enabled in BBFileScout options)
BBFileScout is able to display a small (depending on the selected font site) preview of supported image files.
Please note that this option could eat up a lot of performance of your device, if you open a directory that contain a large number of images that have a file size which is larger the 500KiB. In order to avoid serious performance problems the search result will not display thumbnails for images.
- BBFileScout will display a 128px preview of image files in the details dialog [Key shortcut: I] The thumbnail creation could take some moments – so please be a bit patient.
- Select your favorite folder icons
- When you have chosen ‘Ask each time’ in the ‘When destination exist’ option then it can become quite inconvenient when you will be prompted for plenty of files and you have to select each time the option of your choice. This have been improved: BBFileScout will now remember the first made choice and for the next time the dialog will be displayed the ‘OK’-Button is automatically focused.
