Splash-Screens & Background Photo
Want to show your photos to thousands of digiKam users? Consider submitting your best photos for use with digiKam splash screen. This is also the easiest way to contribute to the digiKam project.
We need two new splash screens: one for digiKam and another one for Showfoto. Send your photos in the landscape format to caulier dot gilles at gmail dot com. Do not add any text, watermark, or other elements to the photo.
We have two SVG templates created with Inkscape for digiKam and for Showfoto. You can use them to try your photos with application logo. Once you’be submitted your photos, we’lol review them and notify you if they’ve been selected.
Since digiKam 5.0.0, we add a new welcome page available on root collection with a background photo and show at first run. This photo must be in full resolution JPG. We will display an overlay with author name, shot location, and camera settings, so don’t forget to provide these information.
See below the official photo from photographers published with the software.
