here are some enhancement ideas for the TGDIPPictureContainer comonent.
  • import images from existing TImageList OR convert TImageList to TGDIPPictureContainer (important) by maybe a design-time wizard?
  • pasting of images directly into left-side container list by either hotkey or right-click "Paste from Clipboard"
  • history of recently opened directories (important); maybe add a drop-down menu to the "Load Directory" button; at least open the last one again...
  • drag'n'drop re-ordering of images and indexing (numbering)  them in addition to the image names like in TImageList (I know, sounds useless to most)
  • displayed row heights are way too large for collections of 16x16 glyphs (maybe replace the default "parent folder" image with a smaller one as it seems to preset the top position of all images in general?)
  • limit the top trackbar to only allow as high a number of rows till actual images are no longer visible due to the image name caption starts hiding them completely (keep increasing and the display becomes rubbish)
  • optional display of image names (use too much space)
  • optional width of cells; try with a folder containing 100+ glyphs with 16x16 size only, like GlyFx, there's no good overview
  • option to display small images with a zoom factor (100%, 200%, 250% etc.) by either combobox with preset zoom-values or a trackbar
  • item focus border is barely visible, either use more visible color (clMaroon) or wider border (if possible)
  • "Save as" for selected images in different formats (see for MPL licensed graphics library with full source)
That's all for this one... :)

Thanks for these detailed suggestions. These are being looked at by the team now to see what we can fit in a future update.
