           Summary: digikam can't handle non-rgb TIFF files
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Fedora RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: info at kobaltwit.be

OS:                Linux

This issue was mentioned shortly in another bug, which is now closed:
(see comment 54: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125916#c54)

At present digikam only supports TIFF images in RGB format. However, I recently
added a lot of CMYK TIFF images to my library (I have received them from my
prepress agency).

Digikam is pretty useless with those images. For example:
* thumbnail generation silently fails with this message on the command line:
Digikam::TIFFLoader::load: Can not handle image without RGBcolor-space
* trying to preview the images fails with message:
Cannot display preview for "xxxx".tif
* the same goes for the image editor

As bug #125916 is closed and I can't find any other bug report on this, I
decided to add another wish to implement this functionality.
