thanx to all for the feedback and help.


This sounds nice, i will check it out. I'm trying now to create a
automatic thumbnailer 
( like http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/OpenDocument_Thumbnails
and if it done i will write a small plugin called "Browse Images" that
will open Nautilus with the
directory of the opened image. If none image is loaded it will open the
home directory. 
My Script generates at the moment only for PSD, RGB and XCF files
thumbnails, that i have
toch change too.
