Possible to view thumbnails with remote login? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to figure out if it is possible to get a thumbnail view of photos via remote login.  I'd like to share pics with my family in a different state, and when I view things they upload I don't really want to see DSC45001.jpg.
    It seems the way that it is now, the remote login doesn't give you any advantage over a simple FTP server, and the FTP would probably allow resuming of dropped downloads!

  • Right....a gallery view would be great.  Along these same lines, I don't know why the remote view shows hidden/system files.  'thumbs.db' isn't a file I'd ever need to download. Why clutter the view?

    Just my 2¥.

  • I absolutely agree with you guys! Having a Thumbnail gallery is a "must have". When you have 200 Photos in a Folder and you search for a special picture it's WAY easier to fly trough the Thumbnails than to open each picture just to realize that it's the wrong one.

  • I experienced the same issue last night. I loaded photos up and I had no idea what was what. I agree, thumbnails are needed for the remote login share section.

  • have you guys filed bugs / suggestions of this stuff?  showing thumbs.db is definitely a bug in my opinion.  And showing thumbnails is a great suggestion.

  • Saw that just now, thanks.  I'm new to Connect...still trying to figure out how the reporting system works.

    Anyway, I've also made a report regarding thumbs.db here....https://connect.microsoft.com/WindowsHomeServer/feedback/ViewFeedback.aspx?FeedbackID=259790
