Status Icons

Status Icons

Special icons may briefly appear just outside the upper-right corner of the thumbnail to tell you what Thumbnail Zoom Plus found, like this:

The icons you may see are:

“Working”: Thumbnail Zoom Plus is loading the pop-up’s image from the web site.  You may notice a small version of the image “scroll in” behind the icon to indicate the amount of progress.

“Too Small”: the pop-up’s image would be about the same size as the thumbnail itself, so it won’t be displayed.

  • This can happen when the site doesn’t have a higher resolution, when Thumbnail Zoom Plus doesn’t know how to find a higher-resolution image, or when your window is too small to let a larger image display.
  • If the “Show %” preference is on, it may also show something like “60%”, indicating the thumbnail is 60% as large as the full-resolution image.  A value less than 100% means you could see the image larger if you window were larger or if you pressed the “t” key while the icon is displayed to open the full-resolution image in a new tab, which will let you zoom in on it.

“Warning”: an error occurred while loading the pop-up’s image.  This could be a problem on the site, a networking problem, or Thumbnail Zoom Plus may not have figured out the correct location of the full-resolution image.

    I’m receiving the “Warning” sign on most every small – in the upper left hand corner – thumbnail on Face Book postings. The picture does not expand. Is that normal?

    The “Warning” status icon appears for gifv images on Imgur and bombs out. The other popular sites like gfycat and giphy work fine though.

      Yes, unfortunately uses a file format which TZP is unable to display in a pop-up (it’s not a webm like on other sites). In TZP v4.1beta2 (and newer) TZP no longer tries to show pop-ups for imgur gifv’s, so you won’t see the “Warning” icon, but unfortunately you won’t see a pop-up either.
