Great work

digiKam is one of those programs that makes me proud to be KDE user :)

change log is truly impressive, keep up the GREAT work :)

PS.
it would be great to have a face recognition feature, so if you have time... :D :)

Nice software

Digikam is the reason that makes me install KDE libs so i can run this incredible piece of software in my Gnome (sorry, not KDE) desktop .. nice job!

Clicky bug numbers

Thank you! Since the list of closed bugs looks autogenerated anyway, could you perhaps turn the bug numbers into links, in future announcements?

The new version is looking great!

Also: The captcha is too hard! I keep failing :-(

Need Watermarks

I really like digiKam, however it really needs to have a watermark capability. Without it you are forced to use gimp and then the usefulness of digiKam is greatly reduced.

CMake Error.

CMake Error: Error in cmake code at
/tmp/pkg/digikam-1.0.0-beta6/CMakeLists.txt:1178:
Parse error. Expected "(", got newline with text "
".
-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

build with KDE test ?

Do you try to build it with KDE4_BUILD_TEST macro ?

If yes, just remove it. test cases code is removed from tarball.

Gilles Caulier

Re: build with KDE test ?

OK. Solved!

Thanks.

Holy Cow!

* Openstreetmap.
* Metadata in Nepomuk.
* Batch que manger.
* Liquid rescale.

Do you not sleep?! Just when I keep thinking Digikam is complete, you keep going and adding more awesomeness.

Thankyou, Giles. You are a one man coding army!

PS What is "New tool bar animation banner."?
PPS Your captcha is truly evil.

We are more than one to code

We are more than one to code on this project (:=)))

Look on the top right, the logo from tool bar is animated when you process something, in editor, camera interface, or BQM...

The captcha is complicated because we are spammed a lots. Sorry...

Hi! I use Digikam (and KDE)

Hi!

I use Digikam (and KDE) and also am a long-time OpenStreetMap contributer.
I sometimes take photos during mapping trips and would like to view geotagged pictures from the same location displayed at once in a map overview.
Is there a way to do this in digikam? Or to show thumbnails for *all* geotagged photos of the current album in the map view(not only the one currently marked)?

As digikam is really big and feature-rich, I fear that it's already there but I didn't find it! ;-)

Thank you for this great application & thank you for using our maps!

-Martin

on and on ...

just want to drop huge props to the devs for keeping the thing rolling!
its always fun to checkout a new revision and see what cool stuff was added - keep on with your good work!

PS: captcha doesn't work with firefox for me (image isn't displayed)

Integration of RawTherapee?

Nice Progress! I like Digikam a lot, but the Raw-Converter gives me Pics with very less Colour. RawTherapee is much better. Since RawTherapee will be GPL´ed, is there any plan to add it to digikam? (Source not out yet). It´s the best free Raw-Converter out there. With it i´m having much better results as with digikam. There are also more Settings in RT. It would be a nice replacement for the current Raw-Converter in Digikam.

ben_pcc: I'm all for it, and Gabor was very enthusiastic about your idea too! It's entirely up to you, since RT will get GPL'd and you'll be free to add what you wish. I can't speak for others but I don't see how anyone would not want that functionality :]

Integration of RawTherapee?

Mybe it would be better if we could easily have digikam work with *any* external tool instead of having an "ad hoc" integration with one tool instead of another...

I believe this was discussed

I believe this was discussed before in regards to Ufraw integration also. Ufraw is more specifically geared towards raw conversion only, does an incredible job, is already open-source, and would be a good first test for some modular/plugin type raw decoding.

Thumbnails are showing slow

Hello and sorry for my bad english,

i think it´s not really a digikam"bug", but if i klick on an album the thumbnails will be build.
Then i can scroll and i see all thumbs during scrolling fast.

Perhaps a day after too. But then, if i open the same album some days later, then the thumbnails
will be build again and i can´t see them all at once... and have to wait until they are ready.
I can scroll, but the thumbs are not seen at once.

That´s the only thing i "hate" on linux/digikam.
What could be the problem ? (if you understand my bad english) ;-)

In Forums i didnt get an answere to this since 1 year.

Have a nice day... Oktarius

Great geolocation

Hi, this new release is really great! The enhancements of the geolocation sidebar are what I've been waiting for. Great work, keep going this way!

Great piece of Software

I use Digikam regularly and I am amazed. Yet I miss some small things

A) If a tag a file in digikam and it is moved to another drive by my backup cron, can I configure Digikam in a way it recognizes that the new found file is the same it already knows and just change the path in the database. Propably as an Option: "Search moved files" that are in the database but no longer present on the local disk

B) The opportunity to load a directory with GPX Files and assign them all to one Folder. Exiftool supports this, until now I use the konsole to geolocalize a multiday hike with multiple gpx files (one per day out of gps device). Yet the GUI is more powerful.

C) Is there any way to display and tag the externally stored images on a removable media? For example I use an external raid that is not regularly connected for security reasons. I like to empty my cf cards in one folder on the raid and let digikam import that folder. As it stores the preview images and metadata info on my local hard disk it would be nice if the raid could be disconnected and at a later time I could use my laptop with the local preview and metadata to tag and geolocalize the images. When I return home I could connect to the raid and just sync the metadata to the raw files. Did I make a mistake in thinking like this?

Thank you again for your great software.

Update

Hello,

I'm using 0.10.0 right now and I've tagged very much. These Tags will still be if I update right?

also:
I want to "fuse" the data of the Tags with the picture-data itself. So that the Tags really are a part of the picture-data.
Is this possible?
