Have you ever struggled with the tiny pop-up list in the UV/Image Editor? So have I!

Therefore, I made an addon that enables to pop-up an extra image list with specified number of rows and columns. Optionally, you can display all images in a plain list.

Moreover, the addon contains a button to clear all users for the selected image datablock. So, the image datablock can disappear after save and reload of the blend file and you can easily get rid of unwanted image datablocks.

UPDATE: I made also a similar addon to display materials (Extra Material List).

    This is an amazing addon. I would not have thought of making one like this, myself. One improvement I recommend adding is a tile scale slider. You can set the scale of the tiles with template_icon_view but you can't with template_ID_preview. It is up to you though. Great addon.

    Thank you for the tip. I've tried the template_icon_view, but sadly it's not so straightforward to use. It seems it can't be used easily with the system image collection, but you would need to dynamically generate custom enum properties to hold your previews. So, I think I stay with template_ID_preview to make code simple :-)

    Thank you for the positive reactions! I'm just working on a similar addon to list all materials and worlds in the node editor. I've wished for a long time to better manage all my materials as well.

    I have something for you you may want to use. I have started working on an addon a while ago. It is a material library addon with a similar style to this one. If you would like to have it, pm me. (no charge). I never completely finished it though.

    P.S. a button to clear all images at once in the scene would be great.

    PS - this is what I really love about the Blender scene - lots of people making stuff and improving it all the time. You would wait ages for something like this in After Effects or Max..... or "anybody" else for that matter!
