I'll come back with some bugs to smash later!

 

EDIT: Chrome sees this download as a potential hazard.

Just tried it out and is very nicely done! I had 1 crash when dragging a picture from my OneDrive folder in Windows 8. I used procdump.exe to find out what type of exception occured. Here it is:

 

------------------------------------------------------------------

[12:28:42] Exception: E0434F4D.System.IO.IOException ("The file cannot be access
ed by the system.
")
[12:28:42] Exception: E0434F4D.System.Windows.Markup.XamlParseException ("The fi
le cannot be accessed by the system.
")
The process has exited.

------------------------------------------------------------------

 

The problem is Windows shows you the content of the OneDrive folder, even if the files are not available locally yet. Windows downloads the file only when needed. That explains the above.

 

Thanks! I'll check it out and try to sort it, thanks for the help :)

 

Interesting stuff!  Will it be able to scale up by % and 'fill to size maintaining ratio' in the future?  I hoped it could up-scale my wallpapers to 2560x1440 (I know Windows already does a fair job).

 

I can certainly look into adding those features! Thanks for the feedback :)

 

Pretty cool, I think software with a UX like this is sort of the future. Gone are the days of ugly tools.

It feels more inspired by OS X or iOS than Metro to me, because of the colours and the blurred headerbar (which I think look great in this context). And the circle spread animation on clicking things feels a bit like Material Design, also cool!

One thing though, nothing happens when I hit the checkmark after selecting images. It just clears the selection and that's it.

 

Yep! It features elements from all operating systems, eg the blurred header bar from iOS and OS X, the subtle circle animations from Android as well as the window controls and some fonts from Windows.

 

That's what the checkmark is supposed to do once you've selected images, it's just an easy way to deselect all the images.

It's completely safe don't worry  :shiftyninja:

Then how do I actually resize images :p ? The X removes them from the grid, the checkmark clears the selection.


* Edit, just got it. Wouldn't it make more sense to make the checkmark resize just the selected images?

I wanted the selection mode purely to be for removing images, but your suggestion is valid and i'll certainly look into a way of incorporating it.

 

Thanks.

I've just pushed out an update which allows you to scale images up with the Percentage tool, also a window should popup at the start to tell you of the new feature in the update. Your app install should update as soon as you open it thanks to ClickOnce.

Anddddddddddddd I've pushed out another update, this time to fix a problem with the last update :p

This is what happens when 64 large photos are loaded and then hovered over :p

I really need to sort hovering over images out :p It doesn't release the memory.

 

So basically try not to hover over images until it's sorted otherwise byebye memory  :s

Not too sure why it was so high then :p It normally isn't.

You should still try musiX out, it's pretty darn sweet.

Pushed another update out to Scalemate, it now shows the progress when saving images in the taskbar, I'll hopefully get it to show in the app soon.
