Image Preview Pane

Is is possible to include a preview pane when clicking on a file either in the upload or download screen. Especially dealing with pictures, I sometimes have to open several different ones just to make sure I am uploading the correct one. I did search tickets for "preview pane" and returned "no results found"

This would require including an image viewer. I think that would be huge effort for very little benefit.

It would be best to address this with a proper organization system for your images, so that you knew which ones needed to be sent/received.

Alternatively, use thumbnail or preview mode in Explorer, and drag/drop the files for send.

For receive, even if there were a preview, you would still be downloading the file first behind the scenes. In such a case, again, Windows explorer is your best bet. Go to My Computer -> Map network drive -> then click the link "Connect to a Website". Put in the URL format, such as . Click next, and uncheck "log On Anonymously". Fill in username, then next, then password.

If you need preview via SFTP of remote files, I don't think there's any functionality anywhere for that. I really don't think that would be a primary focus for FileZilla for the next 10 years or so.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
