           Summary: RAW Conversion UI Needs to be more generic
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Image Editor
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: pwaldo waldoware com

Version:           0.9.2-final (using KDE 3.5.8, Kubuntu (gutsy) 4:3.5.8-0ubuntu3.1)
Compiler:          Target: x86_64-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.22-14-xen

The current RAW conversion is nice, and strikes a good balance between ease of use and technical capability.  For many photos this is fine, but some are so problematic that I have to bring out the "big guns" (UFRaw).  It would be nice to be able to tell digikam I want to edit a file, but use UFraw for the conversion.

To accomplish this, I see a number of design items:
- Ability to configure specific, known converters, such as UFRaw.  Maybe later it would also allow a generic converter, specified as simply an executable.
- Ability to choose when and how a converter is used: always use converter X, ask me which to use, maybe have additional buttons that edit with specific converters
- Once image is converted, it is displayed in standard Edit window

Thanks for your consideration!
