           Summary: wish: extra tool bar in the image editor
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: SuSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: zed quantentunnel de

Version:           0.9.3 (using KDE KDE 3.5.7)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

Problem: in the defalut view of the image editor, the toolbar is a bit "under populated". All the items from the main menu can be crammed into the main tool bar. But that makes the main tool bar a bit overloaded.

Possible solution: A second tool bar for image editing. And here my suggestion for
the default lay out of the image editing tool bar:
- the items from the transform menu
  - rotate left
  - rotate right
  - flip horizontally
  - flip vertically
  - crop (maybe even drop this, if the aspect ratio crop obtains a aspect ratio "free")
  - change size (resample or how the english tranlation may be)
  - aspect ratio crop
  - Shear
  - Free rotation
  - Perspective Adjustment
- ----- space holder
- Now some points from the Color menu
  - Auto Correction
  - Brightness/Contrast/Gamma
  - Hue/Saturation/Lightness
  - White Balance
  - Levels Adjust
  - Curves Adjust
  - Black and White
- ----- space holder
- Most viable items from the Enhance Menu
  - Sharpen
  - Blur
  - Red Eye
  - Noise Reduction
  - Lens Distortions
  - Vignetting
- Decorate
  - Insert Text

Of course this selection is my personal opinion and I tried to focus on the most viable items for image improvement.
