from its usability since it allows for less pictures to show up on

Yup. But, in my usercase (and my girlfriend's), the "v" key feature was not
obvious at all, so we have been actually double-clicking photos every time we
wanted to see them in detail and that makes me feel stupid now. Even now that
feature doesn't feel quite right to me; maybe it's because of its appearance,
maybe it's because of having to keep a key pressed or maybe it's from my
experience with other apps (read Pidgin), but having a yellow tooltip appear
when you let the cursor be is just the thing I'd expect to happen.
