Summary: RAW Conversion UI Needs to be more generic
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!
