Browse by "miniature image" - Ubuntu

Is it possible to browse images as miniature images/icons in Gnome "File selection" dialogs as one can do in Windows by right clicking and changing the view options? Very frustrating trying to locate images in NVU when you have to go by, often poorly named, text names only....

    Depends on what the app is written in and if it uses standard dialog
    boxes or its own. In the case of nvu, it does not appear you can do what
    you want.

    Aren't _you_ naming the files?

    Often many images with similar names, legacy site etc. Nicer to have
    abstract names too in order to stop google helping steal images.

    Yeah, I agree with SINNER, Nvu does not appear to do this. I believe
    Quanta can but you probably need to install konqueror and some other
    stuff in order for that to work. How about dragging and dropping the file
    directly from Nautilus into nvu?

    You may have to move it around on the page, but at least you have the
    right path to the local file.
