PM 5.0 Disturbing Preview Toolbar Icons
« on: July 08, 2012, 03:51:53 AM »
I think the preview toolbar icons in PM 5.0 are too big and too colorful. They are intrusive. Please make them smaller and in black-and-white, similar to the PM 4.6.9 icons. 

It would also be good to be able to hide the toolbar in order to leave maximum space for the image.

Thanks,
Karl

The large splashes of color are pretty distracting for an app to review photos.  I agree.

What would be perfect (and I think this has been promised sometime ago) is a mode where the secondary screen is filled only with your picture, plus the controls to change color and star settings, overlayed on the photo at the bottom.
Nothing around to attract your eyes, and all screen pixels dedicated to the photo.

Hi,
I have customised my toolbar (in the menu, under View) to use small size icons.
There is also an option to hide the toolbar.
As to the colors of the icons, I don't think one can change that at least for the time being.
HTH,

Hi Luiz,

I cannot find any possibility to do that on my Windows 7 machine.

Oryk, It should be in the toolbar. Perhaps you've customised it previously and now you just need to reset it to the default (press shift at startup if I'm not mistaken). Or, at least on a Mac, simply right click on the toolbar, choose customise and drag the upload icon it back onto the toolbar (or reset it altogether).

Karl, that's a Mac only feature (built into the OS).

Thanks Hayo.  Once I used small icons, I thought the icons were fine.  Maybe this should be default.

It would be nice if Windows users could customize the preview toolbar too. At least hide it. Is there any plan for making that possible?

Karl

If ever, this is not a feature that you'll likely see soon; as it is an OS feature on the Mac it “comes for free”. On windows, however, it would require Camera Bits to program it fully, don't think it's that simple either. Haven't used PM on windows for a long time now, but I thought you could at least hide it there (but I could be mistaken).

No, not at this time.

I see. But please do what you can to make the toolbar less distracting for us using Windows, i.e. much smaller icons, and in B/W.

Karl

It should be, but I can't see any. Is anybody out there who has an UPLOAD icon in his toolbar (MAC OS 10.7, PM5 beta2) ?

Here is what the toolbar customization looks like for me:

Hi Oryk!

Yes, it is there without customizing / adjusting anything.
