With the recent changes to the preferences dialog, in bug 661651, the preferences dialog is now very tall. It needs to be changed to (at the least) be wider than it is tall for most situations. Additionally, it would be a good time to rethink how the options are presented to the user, as the current sliders for saturation, hue, brightness and so on take up a lot of space. Maybe those could be hidden in an advanced section.
I recently work on this bug and my idea is on the attachment.
PS : I did a Glade file of it but Glade crashed :'( Sorry about it, i'm remaking it !

What can be the new preferences dialog
"Photo properties" can be changed by a better string like "Capture preferences". I let you see it ;)

If it's reproducible, a bug report against the "Glade" product with a good stacktrace is welcome. See http://live.gnome.org/GettingTraces

What can be the new preferences dialog (UI file)
Pushed a patch to master, after adding the padding and string changes as requested in #gnome-design, as commit 634eca2caba2cec75b223534d34ad436ee5a06f1. Thanks Anthony!
