Hi,

Is it normal that when I start the photo application and I try to view my photos, the thumbnails photos are loading very slowly(like one photo each seconds).

And i'm not over network, i'm using it on my own computer.

Thanks

When accessing from your own computer, are you using the IP address or http://<account>.tonidoid.com? It will be faster if using IP address.

Note that the thumbnails are created the first time you access your photos, so it can take some time. After that, all future access will be fast. You can go back to a folder you had accessed before to see the difference.

This is not a bad idea, but is there a method whereby I can trigger a thumbnail create from command line? ... or create thumbnails at a low priority when the picture is uploaded? (possibly even a cron job at 2am when I dont care how much CPU power is used.)

Alternatively, can I create the thumbnails on a PC and then copy the db on to the plug?

Currently there is no commandline method to create thumbnails.
But, here is a trick, yes you can create a db in a PC and copy over the file.
the file is tonido.db. Simply use Tonido in a PC and browse the folder with your photos, it will create the thumbs in tonido.db. View a slideshow to make it to generate the slideshow sized photos too.

Copy it over to your plug.
