digiKam 0.9.4 splashscreens : call to photographers…

by digiKam

Like digiKam 0.9.3 have been released for Christmas time, it’s time to start next 0.9.4 release plan… and of course the time has come to find the ideal splash-screens to go with it. Now is your chance to join the ranks of the precious few who have had their artwork associated with a release of digiKam!

SplashScreen is a simple way for users to contribute to digiKam project. The pictures must be correctly exposed and composed, and the subject must be choosen using a real photographer inspiration.

The next stable release 0.9.4 of digiKam is planed around april 2008. This version includes a new great feature to show counts of items in album folder view (like KMail folder view for example). Code is already in svn to test. Look this KDE bugzilla entry for details…

For this release, we need 2 new splash-screens dedicaced to digiKam and Showfoto startup. You can send me by e-mail your Color or Black and White pictures, taken horizontally. We need only photos, no need to put few marks about program name and version. We have a template to do it later.

See the official 0.9.3 and 0.10.0 (KDE4) splash-screen contest results as exemple.
