           Summary: reflect current selection inside the file system using
                    symbolic links
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Mandriva RPMs
        OS/Version: unspecified
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: Julien at narboux.fr

Version:            (using KDE 4.1.4)
Installed from:    Mandriva RPMs

When one wants to export pictures to a website there are two cases:
- either the website is supported by some kipi plugin (gallery, flickr, 23,
picasa ...)
- or you have to use an external tool (ftp, web applet of the web site...)

When using this external tool you do not have access to all the searching and
filtering features of Digikam.
For instance, if you want to export pictures which are rated three stars or
more, it is difficult to do it outside digikam. Usually to solve this problem I
copy the pictures I want to select in a temporary directory. It is not very

A solution could be to have a directory called "Digikam current selection",
which would contains symbolic links to all the pictures which appear in the
last selection of Digikam. This directory could be updated when selection
change in Digikam.

Now, if I want to export some pictures to a web site which is not supported by
any kipi plugins, I can just select all the pictures in the "Digikam current
selection" directory.

Another solution of this problem could be to have Digikam filtering and saved
search integrated somehow in the standard Kde open file dialog, but I think
this would require system wide changes...

my 2 cents
