           Summary: improvements to the lightable
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Debian stable
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: arnd.baecker web de

Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from:    Debian stable Packages
OS:                Linux

The new lighttable is very nice, but 
there are two important features which are, in my opinion, needed
to make it really useable:

- the light-table has to work with non-scaled images
  (i.e. like the image editor); otherwise
  a control of the quality is not possible.
  Presently a reduced-size version of the image is used.
- joint zooming and joint panning is essential
  (as discussed in http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135048,  #50, 
   for images not identical in size
   this should just be disabled;
   maybe there is a way to deal with this, but this
   really looks like a rare situation)

Less important than the previous two:
- In addition, even for similar pictures, the
  subject of interest might not be at the same place.
  For this the possibility to create an additional shift
  (while still keeping the linked panning and zooming) would
  be helpful. This could be achieved by declaring
  the left image as master and the right one just follows
  any zoom and pan.
  If one pans in the right image, only this one is
  affected. If one then pans in the left one,
  the right one follows, as before, but with
  the additional shift
  (there might be some issues near the borders, but
   one thing after another ;-).
