thumbnails for georeferenced pictures: not really needed, slow, no caching
|Reported by:||malenki||Owned by:||team|
While builting the AgPifoJ-plugin into Josm a thumbnail-generator was also coded. Sure it was meant good, but it has some flaws:
*It slows down the system quite a lot. After loading ~800 pictures the generating of the thumbnails one core of my C2D E6600 goes full blast with the java-engine for seven minutes. Will be really bad when I'd try to use this on my Atom-Netbook I bet. (I won't try and will stuck there with some old josm for some time)
*The thumbnails aren't cached so one has the joy to see the thumbs being generated every time he loads images into josm.
*The thumbnails are really small. Maybe somebody likes to use such tiny images for the fun of it, but I don't need them really (and don't want bigger ones).
Desired behaviour: being able to switch off thumbnails
Additionally desired: caching of thumbnails since otherwise people using thumbs would have to generate them anew every time the load the same images
