If the preferred size has changed since a catalogue or catalogues were created then the thumbnails could always be re-created if necessary.
When an image is Alt-dragged to a.n.other application and that application modifies the image, Thumbcat recognises that the original has changed and re-creates the thumbnails. The rate at which Thumbcat checks for external changes is set here. When an image changes the rate is initially set to 0.1s and slows by 0.1s per check down to the rate set here. Thus frequent changes occur at a fast rate of every 0.1s whereas "steady state" slows down to a user defined value.
The slide interval is the time in seconds between slideshow image changes.
Inner margin size defines the space between and image and a border in both the album and detail views.
Outer Margin defines the spacing between objects in all views. This includes the margin between a window border and the catalogue text list, the spacing between album "slides", the spacing between headers and the main display area etc.
Performance enhancement is used to reduce the size of the intermediate drawfiles that are built for printing. The resolution applies to the viewable image not the resolution of the printer. Under normal viewing conditions the human eye can resolve 300dpi colour and 600dpi monochrome. When an image is being printed the resolution of the scaled image is determined and if this is higher than the resolution chosen here then the image will be scaled before inserting into the drawfile. This will result in a smaller filesize especially for multiple images. Normally an unmodified image is inserted into a drawfile and the drawfile object has the scaling specified.
