Even in single window mode, it looks very bothersome to me. You can
see the chrome browser next to GIMP, which shows a proper icon making
it very easy to recognize whereas GIMP shows a generated
thumbnail-icon of the opened image. Moreover Windows 7 was already
showing a bigger thumbnail of the whole GIMP window anyway.
Right now, the status is that some OS/desktop/window managers seem to
never use the generated thumbnail-icon anyway, and the ones who use it
would anyway also show their own thumbnail in better resolution.
Sorry, but for me the bothersome application is Chrome... because if I
have several Chrome instances, I cannot distinguish them (while i
could if Chrome replaced its icon by the site's favicon, or even had
distinct icon for its "open" and "private" modes)( Firefox has the
same shortcomings). Currently, if I have several Gimp images open, I
can identify them that way, however distorted they are, as long as
they are different enough. And even in SWM, I could have several Gimp
instances running... So let's not throw the baby with the bath water.
I am not throwing any baby with any water. I am on the contrary seeking
feedbacks. So thank for this, since you are the first person (finally!)
whose experience is opposite to all the other feedbacks we got until
At this point, I believe that the whole feature should be dropped,
whatever mode one is in.
If anyone likes the feature (we have not had 1 single positive
feedback until now), please make yourself heard now.
So let's not throw away the baby with the bath water.
