Summary: differientiating view and edit / call for a integrated
Platform: Ubuntu Packages
AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
ReportedBy: o.r-d laposte net
Version: 8 (using KDE KDE 3.5.3)
Installed from: Ubuntu Packages
I suggest that the default behaviour in digikam when clicking on a image should be to show it in an integrated viewer and not in showfoto.
I think there are at least 2 reasons for that
1-- The most common action in digikam is to look at pictures not to edit them. so the workflow should be as simpe as possible.
today it is
1- look for the picture using one of the side panels.
2- click on a picture
3- interact with the window manager to resize/move showfoto
4- click next or whatever
I believe that having to deal with an external windows is not necessary
2--- view and edit are 2 different things and in digikam they are not enough differentiated (think of the view/edit button in the toolbar for example )
I suppose it is the reason for many of the complains I read on this mailing list (search for loseless or edit in the mailing list)
A possible implementation could be that when clicking on an image the iconview should be replaced by the image clicked with a simple toolbar containing essential loseless things : NEXT, PREV, ROTATE CLW (loseless of course), ROTATE CCLW, SLIDESHOW, BACK TO ICONVIEW; EDIT(=send to showfoto)
The side panels should still be visible.
just my 2 cents...
