>>I think perhaps a much larger image (maybe more on the order of >512
pixels) in a sort of side panel (opened with N?) which shows a preview
of the active file might be more useful..? This way you could use the
small thumbnails for finding a few files from a list of many files, then
the large preview to see more subtle details of the active file and pick
between the few files before opening.
Exactly! That is what I am talking about.
