What is a thumbnail?
A thumbnail is a small picture/image that appears when you add a
file to your album. The size, name, saved location and other details
about the pictures/images are being categorized when added to the
albums. A thumbnail acts like a "shortcut" (in Windows machines) or
as an "Alias" in Macintosh machines.
What is the relationship between the thumbnails and the original
A thumbnail shows the location and details of the original file
(called the original file or source file or saved file.) A thumbnail
is not the original saved file.
Still picture files, movie files and sound files can all be saved in
your PC's hard disk as original files; the thumbnails of these files

This is an image file format that has been standardized by JEIDA

images taken by digital cameras.
What happens when I select "Create album with selected thumbnails"

when you want to save searched results. A new album is created
containing only the thumbnails you have selected.
When I selected the "Rename file" option, the name of the thumbnail
The 'rename file' option indicates changing the name of the original
file and not the name of the thumbnail. When you select the "rename
file" option, and change the file name, only the name of the
original file has changed and not the name of the thumbnail.
Thumbnails are created at the import mode so it bears the same name
with the original file. However, ImageMixer handles and stores the
two names separately so it is not imperative that the names have to
be the same.
When you want to change or rename a thumbnail, please change the
"Title" of the information panel.
I cannot figure out how to quit the "Slide show" when it is running.
Press the'Esc' key on your keyboard and you can quit the slide show.
How many letters can I use for naming files and typing comments?
You can use up to 60 letters for the 'Title' area and 250 letters
for the 'Comment' area.

the thumbnail, as a result, long title names may not appear in full.

When I imported and edited vertically long still picture files and
converted them, only part of the image appear on the thumbnails.

the image is used to created its thumbnail. Image Mixer or Digital
still cameras will display these thumbnails showing only part of it.

My printer doesn't respond. Are there any fixed sizes to print
Usually, the model and settings of the printer the user has,
determines the process and limitations of data transfer between the
ImageMixer software and the printer. If the printer cannot print
certain sizes being set on the Imagemixer printer settings, then the
printer will not respond.
Also there are no specific or fixed sizes to to print images. You
can vary your sizes according to your liking. Use the editing mode
to edit images to the size and form you desire before printing.
Can I print the same picture in 4X6 images in one full page?
Printing in one full page of 4 x6 (4 colons and 6 rows) is possible
when the pictures are different. That is, if you have 16 pictures
and you want to print it out all in one page - 4 x 6. However, if
you would like to print one image or picture to cover the whole page
4 x 6, then the software could not respond to that request on this
version. The coming up version will probably include that function.
(Macintosh user) When I converted a still picture file and re-start
my PC, there is a file in my trash bin.
