Choose between static and fast previews on Photo Mechanic Plus

Request from one of our customers:

I was looking for a replacement of my MediaPro database of edited images. These images vary between 500 MB and at least 2 GB (PSD and TIFFs). If I scan these images into a PM Plus catalog. They take a very long time to be ingested, which is normal. However I expect to be able to use them afterwards without further delay. However, as I have learned, they will be read again and again every time the catalog is opened and the cache is cleaned (?). Only images which are not accessible are replaced/visible by a static preview.

My feature request is now that you provide the option for creating static previews of 1440–2560 pixels wide (optional) to be stored within/aside the catalog for online and offline images. The users should be able to choose between static and dynamic "previews". Thanks for bringing this to life as soon as possible!

Even a "Sync Catalog: Full" may not need to re-generate the previews again, as this is very time consuming and usually unnecessarily excessive for already existing ones.
