Wanted: new slogan, logo and website design

DigiKam has come a long way since the early beginnings in 2002. It has come of age and deserves new cloths or a new 'corporate design' in today's parlance.

To find a new slogan, a new logo, iconized slash screen and web design has been itching me and others for quite a while now. But those are sensitive and difficult subjects, in particular for us amateurs in that field.

A contest is herewith opened to create such new cloths, closing end of march 2008. We shall then make a pre-selection and vote on the best candidates. I will act as coordinator and point of contact. Please supply your proposals to gerhard at kulzer dot net.

Guide lines:

  • Photography and FOSS should be the general context.

In the KDE4 0.10 version this works also in the tracklist mode where you can show and geolocate several images at the same time.

digiKam has a new Time-Line view!

Since digiKam 0.9.3 is released, i working hard to a new major feature for digiKam 0.9.4 : a Time-Line to perform complex date search around whole image collection.

My first approach of Time-Line have been describe in this blog entry, including this tool in calendar view. This way been limited and unadapted because calendar view is not a Search view as well. To solve this problem, i have created a new left sidebar tab named "timeline"...



See below an advanced description of Time-Line tool in action:
