           Summary: wish: use embedded thumbs within jpegs to speedup album
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: SuSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: Michael.NoSpam gmx de

Version:            (using KDE 3.5.9KDE 1.2)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMsSuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

Currently thumbnails are created on the fly and stored within subdirectory ~/.thumbnails. This - from my point of view - has two disadvatages:
1. occupies extra diskspace for thumbnails (for each user, for each computer within network)
2. re-building thumbnails is timeconsuming (especially on slow computers like mine:-)

My wish: Instead of storing thumbnails within separate directory use thumbnails already embedded by digital camera within jpeg file. Of course then one cannot change the size of thumbs, orientation of thumbs might be wrong. But if that approch will speedup display of albums and simultaneously reduces diskspace consumption, I'd really like that new feature.

Thanks, Michael
