           Summary: Default filename for renamed imports: remove the colon
           Product: digikam
           Version: 1.5.0
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Import
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: kde-51 at dotancohen.com

Version:           1.5.0 (using KDE 4.5.85) 
OS:                Linux

Although the colon character : is a legal filename character in ext
filesystems, it is not so for NTFS / FAT filesystems. Therefore I propose that
this character be removed from the Digikam default filename for imported files'
rename. Currently the format is yyyy-mm-ddTHH:MM:SS-000001.JPG

The current behaviour leads to many problems when sharing photos with family
and friends. Seeing how KDE in general and Digikam in particular are moving to
a "social" role this barrier to interoperability is sorely out of place.
