I have all my photo data arranged in a tree under a single folder - that means I can regularly use the menu item "Render thumbnails for a specific folder - include subfolders" to re-render everything, overnight if necessary. That saves a lot of time when I open any folder in icon view.

.sim files:

These files, used for "find duplicates", are also stored in the same cache folder as the thumbnails. Would it be sensible to have another menu item to recursively create these files as for the thumbnails? (I recognise that the comparison phase of "find duplicates" is actually far longer than the create .sim file phase).

Exif data:

Reading exif data takes time - as far as I can see this is due to exiv2, and therefore is irreducible. Would it be possible/sensible to try to cache exif data also?
