Figure 14.60.  The Images dialog

The Images dialog

The Images Dialog displays the list of open images on your screen; each of them is represented with a thumbnail. This dialog is useful when you have many overlapping images on your screen: thus, you can raise the wanted image to foreground.

4.2.1.  Activate Dialog

The Images dialog is a dockable dialog; see the section on Dialogs and Docking for help on manipulating it. It can be activated in several ways:

  • From the Toolbox menu: FileDialogsImages.

  • From an image menu: DialogsImages.

  • From the Tab menu in any dockable dialog: Add TabIhmages.

4.2.2.  Using the Images dialog

At the top of the dialog, a drop-list of open images appears if the “Show Image Selection” option is checked in the Tab Menu.

At center, open images appear, as a list or a grid, according to the selected mode. The current image is highlighted in list mode, outlined in grid mode. With a double click on an image name, you raise this image to the foreground of your screen. With a simple click you select this image so that the buttons of the dialog can act on it.

Grid and List modes, preview size

As in all dialogs with thumbnails, the Tab menu gives you the possibility of adapting thumbnail display to your liking. See Docking


Three buttons at the bottom of the dialog allow you to operate on the selected image. These buttons are present if the “Show button bar” is checked in the tab dialog. You can get the same commands through the pop menu by right-clicking on the dialog.

Raise this image displays

The selected image appears at the foreground of your screen. If this image has another view, this view also is raised but remains behind the original. The same option in the pop-up menu, that you get by right-clicking, is called “Raise views
