Change View only on specific Folders

Hi to all,

I would like to keep my files as list, with the exception of the Picture folders which I would like to have the picture preview on it.
How can I change the view only for the Picture (or specific) folders, like Windows is doing?

Thanks in advance,

Unfortunately this is a global setting and can only be toggled.
There was talk of changing this but it has been asked for sine 2012 and still isn't there.

You could research a different file browser that may do this but not the default file browser that comes with Gnome.

See this for a number of file browsers for Linux.

Dolphin on Plasma does not appear to have issues if you have different instances, but I could be wrong!

Thanks @jgordon for the nice hint!
Such a pity it is not inserted in the default file bowser. Normally only the Picture folder (or folders with pictures) need the preview. The others could stay with the details
