It is similar.
There are few visual bad sides like if person have such color schema that is
very bright, then sidepanel can be such, but it should not be problem as we
allow custom color schema on digikam, so user can easily edit them on
SystemSettings and then just choose such.
But this widget would more need same scaling for every widget. Now we have
And so on.
I would say, technically they might be correct.
But visually and logically for person who does not know algorithms and
scales of widgets, it is a mess.
Is there a change to make every widget to have same scale and steps?
Like now example the RAW import tool and Post Processing tab of it:
On that, Brightness and Contrast looks good. They are on scale -100-100
And visually those looks good when scale is 10 on every step.
But when looking Exposure and Gamma, we have lines for steps too much and
the panel comes cluttered.
Even if not adding that progress bar style for widgets, having a same visual
widget levels would be huge improvement.
But is it technically possible or is it too huge compromise or even defect
for features?
There are some settings where default is 2 from range 0-5. So having that to
scale up to same size is a problem. But stepping does not need to be same,
as we can cut 100 scale to smaller sizes like 5 (every step is 20%). Default
coult be kept as it is (2).
