         When you use an existing folder of photographs, as the Album Library folder, you will notice that the Albums in the My Album list do not have photographs as their icons. The first time you view each Album &digikam; will create a thumbnail from the first photograph in the Album and use this as the Album icon. See the <link linkend="using-kapp-myalbumsview">My Album</link> section for details of how to change the Album icon.

             &digikam; can automatically rename your photographs using the date and time information included by the camera in the photograph. To use this feature, click the <guilabel>Advanced</guilabel> button on the Camera Interface. The Camera Interface window will expand to reveal some extra features. Select <guilabel>Customize Names</guilabel> and then enter any filename prefix you would like. Then, optionally, add the date and time and an a sequence number. The sequence number may be needed if you have a camera with a very fast multi-shot mode. With this mode, it is possible to get two photographs with exactly the same data and time.
