           Summary: Easyer colorspace handling in digikam
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: SuSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: krienke at uni-koblenz.de

Version:           0.10 (using KDE 4.2.4)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs

When importing JPG photos into digikam that are in a different color space than
the default workspace digikam image editor offers two option in colormangement
1. convert the image
2. ask what should be done

In both cases the photo is modified and has to saved confrontig the user with a
save file dialog. So even when the user just wants to look at some photos he
got from someone else he cannot browse through these photos without manually
saving each photo allthough he did not want to modify the photo in any way.

I think a better solution is to convert the colorspace of the photo on the fly
so the display is correct but without any need to save the converted photo and
without any dialog asking for a conversion.  This allows the user to browse
through hist photos and delays a save operation until it is really needed.  So
Only after he processes his photo in any way so it has to saved anyway this
should be done or asked for but not if he just looks at his photo.
