Select Image dialog improvements

  • Select Image dialog improvements
  • Hi team,

    I'd like to add a suggestion for the image select dialog.
    Currently you see the thumbnails of images in one or more libraries. Works okay.

    Would be nice to also see the caption or name of the image. Sometimes I can't figure out which image I have to select, if they look almost the same, or when I have a big and a small version of the image. I have to quit the design mode and go back to the image library to check the image.

    So, caption, filename would be a nice addition. Maybe this whole dialog can be bigger, because it is just so small! Then you maybe have room for a listview of images...?

    Regards,
    Daniel
  • Hello Daniel,

    Thank you for your suggestion. I will discuss this with our UX team as they have the last word in this. I think it is a good suggestion, personally.

    Any news on this? I'm getting feedback from my customers that it is not a very friendly dialog in terms of searching images. It should look like the dialog that was created in one of the blogposts about an image selector dialog.

    See the attachment of an example.

    Thanks!

  • This has been a complaint since release...the popup dialog is horrible.  I've got a library with a bunch of logos, all with differing sizes, but in the popup they all literally look the same.

    What would be nice is a plain GRID view with image, name, tags

    Or even a listview with something like
    <image/><div>Name<br />Category\Tags</div>

    Just about every widget dialog has stayed the same since the January release...tons have scrollbar issues, missing functionality, etc, and they're just never improved outside of a bug fix (it seems)

    :/

    Hello Daniel, Steve,

    Thank you for your comments for the Image dialog.
    Attached you will find a screenshot of the wireframe we prepared to demonstrate some improvements we plan to make in the Image dialog.

    Please look at the wireframe and feel free to comment.

  • Hi Lubomir,

    Thanks for the wireframe. Looks much better then the current view.
    I personally think that including the title would be the most effective anyway. I see that this could be a problem with the layout, since some people think of ridiculous long titles, but there we could have the option to show the images as:

    1. A listview (like in the Images module in the backend)
    2. A thumbnail view (like the one in the wireframe)

    Is this planned or scheduled for this year? (4.3 / 4.4)

    Regards,
    Daniel

    Hello Daniel,

    Thank you for the feedback. Attached is a screenshot which demonstrates how the list with images will look like in List view.

  • Cool, that looks like what I need. Any estimate for this?
  • Hello Daniel,

    Thank you for the comment - I am happy to hear that.

    Unfortunately we do not have an estimate when this improvement will be implemented but it is definitely in the plans.

  • Well we have the hover-over details now...that's a start, you can at least better determine size
  • @Steve

    Thanks for the feedback. Waiting for language files to update my sites to 4.3. Don't have time to set up a test site just to see and therefore I desided to take advantage of the community (in this case you).

    Thanks.

  • Just like to bring this under the attention again. It's about 1 year later right now.

    Curious if these wireframes ideas are planned to be developed soon?

    Hey, if you need more developers to do stuff like this, let me know! ;)

    Regards,
    Daniel
