No. The gaol of this project is to write a tool to clone area by hand,
as under Photoshop or gimp. We have already a lots of automatic tool
in digiKam, which do not help in-deep to remove unwanted objects,
persons, etc...


Do you know C++, Qt, and KDE API ? It's very important fto be able to
play with digiKam code...
