How do I customize the preview of a photo in Thunar?

Greetings. I would like to customize my XFCE image viewing in the form of large previews, as in the screenshot from the main page of your site. What do I need to do? Install the packages as in the screenshot?

Hello and welcome.

To change the size of the icons (and the image previews), use the menu option View>Zoom In, or keyboard shortcut Ctrl++, or Ctrl+mouse scroll.

In Thunar, it's in the View menu.

You can also use the keyboard or keyboard/mouse shortcuts.

No, you did not understand me. You need a magnification as in Windows Explorer.
Here when you insert a photo on the Internet sites Thunar propose a magnification.  How do I do this in my home folders?

The image that you have posted is not from Thunar. It is the GTK FileChooser dialog (initiated by your web browser). The screenshot in your first post is from Thunar.

My apologies, but I still don't understand what it is you want Thunar to do. If it's to show bigger previews, then my method above is the way. There is a limit on the maximum size of the preview Thunar can generate and it is smaller than the size that the Gtk FileChooser dialog generates.

Increasing the image of your method is very small, I need more. In addition, this entails an increase in the size of other labels., And I do not need all, but only images.
I want as in Windows (sketch on the right)

Re: How do I customize the preview of a photo in Thunar?

It looks like you're asking about a separate image preview pane. That functionality doesn't exist in Thunar.

Other possible options include:
- Gloobus-preview
- A custom Thunar action (requires ImageMagik):

<action>
	<icon></icon>
	<name>Preview Image</name>
	<unique-id>1494421350909003-1</unique-id>
	<command>display -resize 512x512 %f</command>
	<description>Preview image...</description>
	<patterns>*</patterns>
	<image-files/>
</action>

But neither create that preview pane like you've shown in the Windows screenshot.
