make pic on image file icon
« on: February 18, 2009, 07:36:00 AM »
Some time we don't like download large image when we don't know what the image look like.

HFS will just take windows file icon to show on webpage, so use this program can change windows file icon for jpg,png,gif... and the other image files.

and now, HFS will take the new icon from windows, then we can see the small image before we download the image file.

By the way, this program will flash the icon when you open the image folder on windows. it is fast.
and you can change the settings on the windows control center.



Download this program from here. file size:706kb

link is not working.  It looks like the server is down.

What's the name of the program?

Can somebody host the file?

Exactly how does this program work?  Do you have to restart every time to update the configuration files?  If so then this is practically useless for HFS seeing as most of us don't frequently restart our server computers. ???

It does work....but the icons are like 5px by 5px.  How the heck are people supposed to be able to see those?  Nice image preview. ::)

I'll give anyone $5 if they can tell me what these images are:

will... HFS take icon for 16x16 only, so the image can not be bigger anymore.
maby you can ask rejetto make HFS to take 32x32 64x64 icons.

or you need make thumbs manual with other tool, and use another template.
or if your total files is not bigger then 2GB, maby you can try Dropbox.

Dropbox will auto update photo/files by folder, and auto make web Album.
it's look like this

sorry rejetto i love this software, but i can not find other way to solve this question.  :'(

the 16x16 is a big limit, i know, but some other lacks are worse
