Possible with latest release.

Already possible

You can change the view type. Possible types depend on used skin.

Thank you! Smile

Not sure if I should tell you or skin authors about it (not sure how Add-Ons really work), but it would be awesome if I could decide that the default view type for Pictures is "blank". Now, I need to change it for each folder. Not complaining, just throwing ideas Smile.

Ahhh, that explains a lot. Can't see the update in XBMC yet, but I will check it whenever it shows.

I also have some other ideas on how this plugin could be even better (don't get me wrong, it's already awesome :>):
- Adding folders / dates to Collections (now you can only choose individual photos)
- Browsing collections as any other folder (now it seems to automatically launch a slideshow)

Maybe those two are by design and were basically designed to do something else. My scenario would be like I am back from vacation and would like to have a Collection like "Mexico Cruise" and add there all dates from June 1st to June 14th. I could probably do it with Filter Wizard, though? (however, the above may be an alternative way to do it?)

Thanks again for the information and looking forward to seeing the upgrade in my XBMC.

Got the upgrade. Installed it first through Superrepo. Added your repo and it's there. Works great! ;-)

Makes sense. I'll add a setting to automatically set the view type to thumbnails (in the next few weeks, not tomorrow!).

- Please try the context menu. Quiet often there is already a menu "Add to collection". Only adding folders to a collection is missing.
- You can browse your collection with the context menu.

Ahh, thanks for information. I didn't notice that. Only tried folders and files, so I assumed it's only available for files Wink.

Will check browsing collections tomorrow, thanks for a hint.
