Summary: Allow more conservative memory management
Component: Image Editor
AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
ReportedBy: d.h.j.takken xs4all nl
Version: 0.9.4-beta4 (using KDE 3.5.8)
Working with very large photographs (like 50 megapixel 16-bit 6x6 cm slide scans) can be a problem in Digikam. A 300 MB TIFF easily consumes 800 MB of resident memory and a total of 1200 MB of virtual memory.
Maybe adding features like a configurable number of undo steps can improve the situation. CinePaint has this feature, and this application is a lot easier on the memory than DigiKam is.
