You can use the commands in this section to define the look of the thumbnails in galleries that have them.

A thumbnail is a miniature version of a picture or video in a gallery, and it is created automatically by the program. Thumbnails are shown in frames that can make them look like slides, negatives, post-its, etc.

These commands are for defining the thumbnail's appearance:

Preset Image: you can choose the frame for the thumbnail from a selection.
Custom Image: you can load the graphic file (in .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, .BMP, .PSD, .TIF, .DIB, .PCX, .RLE, .TGA or .WPG format) that corresponds to the frame you want to use.

To create a new frame, prepare the image and save it in a file. You should create square frames and save them in .PNG form, if you want to maintain an outer transparency.

The following Options are also available for the thumbnails:

Thumbnails outer margin: you can define the margin between one thumbnail and the next.
Outer Image Margin (%): you can specify the margin between the thumbnail and the frame.
Enable Color Saturation: you can specify the color saturation of the thumbnail frame. A coloring effect is applied to the frame's image so that it tends towards the required color.

Color saturation has no effect on black or white frames.
