Akasya,

I'm changing this to an idea. If anybody else is interested in being able to preview the images uploaded to Storage, please let us know by +1 the topic.

Thanks.

I'm glad I came across this thread. I was getting ready to post about the very same thing. The Rise Storage most definitely needs a thumbnail preview for uploaded images. It's all well and fine if someone like myself in the IT dept is working within the storage (I pretty much know what images are what by the names). However,  I'd like to delegate control out to other depts, and I know they would have a harder time finding images within Rise Storage without the assist of thumbnail previews. 

This feature would really go a longs ways in terms of easy of use. Please make it a reality!

Indeed, as now, when pointed a presentation to Image Folder, I need to download all existing images to know what images it is in the folder... very frustrating!

I'm happy to see this thread again! We still definitely need thumbnail preview in storage. It's very frustrating not knowing what image you are selecting.

I thought this feature was already implemented... searching more about it ended up here.  :-)

Ulf,

Not yet, but we will let everyone know if this functionality comes into the platform.

Thanks!
Storage in general needs a lot of usability improvements and this would be a fantastic addition. I have an idea thread of other UI improvements to make as well. Currently for $10/Mo Storage really isn't worth the cost. Nobody is using a tremendous amount of storage for their signs and a VPS with 20GB storage is only $5/mo from Digital Ocean yet is monumentally more versatile. Currently I only use Storage to keep everything in one place and to support Rise but it would be great if the features matched the price. You could use Dropbox for static hosting on your sign and it's free with a much better UI.

Thanks for that feedback Chris, we appreciate it! We'll let everyone know if and when this functionality comes into the Storage interface.
