I have two small suggestions for the album view: display of number of images
and removal of (IMHO unnecessary) text, and allowing to collapse the thumbnails
of one album (like in iPhoto). See attached screenshot.
With the left side arrow pointing down, the view is expanded and the album's
thumbnails are visible below. With the arrow pointing right, the view is
collapsed and there are no thumbnails (and subalbums fo the collapsed album)
A Ctrl-click (or Shift-click) on the arrow could in addition collapse / expand
*all* albums' thumbnails of the current view. The arrow status (collapsed /
expanded) would need to be saved in the albums' metadata.
This slight UI change has several advantages:
- less strings to translate,
- metadata like date and number of images is easier to find (right-aligned),
- less (vertical) screen space required (important for today's 16:9 displays)
if album name, date and number of images tag fit beside (otherwise the date and
the number of images would need to wrap),
- I can view the contents of several albums at once (e.g. to compare or find
images, or to split/merge albums), even if they are not chronologically beside
each other. This is what I did in iPhoto (it used to have the same view) and
actually my main reason for this suggestion.
I think it would make a nice UI improvement for the albums view.
What do you think?
