Batch processing works albeit not quite in the expected way. By this I mean that choosing a fixed size to export an image seems to result in it's longest dimension being 280px unless the Adjust for Landscape Portrait Images check box is checked. I'm still to figure this out and it might just be something I'm doing wrong. However, re-sizing by percentage works fine as does applying canvas borders and text attributes to images although I haven't checked every available combination thereof.
All tool bars, scroll bars, buttons and window borders lay out correctly albeit there does seem to be some minor transparent buffering at the top of some windows where the screen from any previously used workspace seems to show through but for the most part I hardly notice it. All menu drop down menus respond quickly except for the scripting menu for some reason and the right-click image pop-up menus seem a little retarded but not excessively slow. One click re-scan worked very quickly scanning some 20,000 images along with some mods and errors for invalid file formats in around 8 minutes including several new folders with 4mb images being processed in around 1/3 to 1/2 of a second each on my Dell D800 1.5Ghz notebook with 1Gb RAM with several other applications already running in other workspaces. Importing EXIF data took around 30 seconds.
The few scripts I have run including HTML Slideshow and Photo Gallery Creator worked flawlessly except that the Photo Gallery Creator only created clones of the index page thumbnails but again perhaps this was just me.
What does not
At his stage of testing the only thing not to have worked is right-click Image > Open which is I imagine because IMatch is looking for an external image viewing application native to windows which of course doesn't exist under WINE. However, right-click Image > Edit serves the purpose of viewing an image anyway, so no great loss.
What was not tested
I have not imported or tried to run any custom scripts at this stage but will update this at a later date when tested.
