Summary: exif autorotation on import should be backgrounded /
Platform: Debian testing
AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
ReportedBy: avbidder+kde fortytwo ch
Version: 0.9.3 (using KDE 3.5.9)
Installed from: Debian testing/unstable Packages
Subject says it pretty much all.
Camera sits idle while autorotation is done, and CPU is idle while image is downloaded from camery. 1+1 = 2 :-) Logical conclusion: batch the image downloads and immediately start up a background process doing the exif autorotation on all pictures already downloaded.
(Yet another think I should be writing code for when I only had the time ... :-)
(Yes, I know I can just switch off autorotation and batch it after via kipi. But that's just ugly from a UI/Usability view, and I really like having the autoroation feature... Autoration could even finish in the background, getting back to the GUI immediately after image import. With an 8G CF card, image download takes a while, especially since on my machine EXIF rotation is even longer...)
