Property Value

A boolean value (true or false). If true Image Uploader displays disproportional EXIF thumbnails in the thumbnail list, otherwise the control resizes original image to thumbnail size.

Default value is "true".


To accelerate folder navigation Image Uploader supports displaying EXIF thumbnails in the folder and upload panes when the Thumbnails view mode is set. Such thumbnails are created by the most of cameras and stored along with image data. However, some cameras may create EXIF thumbnails which are out of proportions of original images. If so disproportional thumbnails will have black stripes above and below them. In this case you can set this property to false to regenerate preview thumbnails from original images and get rid of black stripes or specify a true value to display disproportional thumbnails instead.
