looking at the image preview patch made me realize that there is a UI
clash on the main toolbar :
The album actions should not be on the main toolbar. Now that we have
many ways of navigating our images (dates, tags) there is no reason to
have those album actions always visible. Maybe they should be part of
the album sidebars. (ex, why having an album properties button when
looking at pictures by dates ?)
And since I was looking at the main toolbar here are some other comments
to start the discussion :
next image and prev image actions should be on the main toolbar and not
only on the properties sidebar.
I am not sure the icons for "go to last" and "go to first" are
necessary. having the shortcuts available is probably good but I think
the buttons are confusing and that people(me for example :-) ) hit them
often by mistake.
I doubt that the "zoom in" , "zoom out" actions are much used. They
should be available for people wanting them but not as default. I think
it is more of a settings than something you change 10 times a day. I
know many kde applications have them but it doesn't mean it is a good idea.
The slideshow action should be on the main toolbar when the kipi plugin
is installed, this is probably one of the most used actions in digikam.
The rotate right 90 and rotate left 90 degrees from kipi should also be
on the main toolbar. I think it makes sense in a usability point of
view and it would avoid many mails on digikam.user from people looking
for the loseless rotation :-)
