Gilles (& Marcel):
Thank you these large amount of information.
As much as I understand, we can expect a serious improvement in V 3.3- I
am keen on it!
Last time, my thumbnail is growing to more than 12 GB, and most probably
related to this fact, startinge tim of my digiKam V. 3.2 is rising to
some twenty minutes!!!
One obstacle seem to be clear: the max cpu percentage does _not_ exceed
25% which mean under quadcore, that digiKam does _not_ use my machine
In many motherboards, the OS can force the graphic chip to support the
cpu. Do you intend to achieve this in future?
Besides, the database concept of digiKam seems to limit many features of
the program itself.
There would are many causes to "attach" metadata to some expternal file,
as xml could be. If one starts to look for a selected directory,
all xml-files would be loaded instantaneously- no huge and potentially
risky database- files had to be loads at all.
Belonging to one picture, all derived version of a specific pic could be
treated as one single entity, meaning, that versioning of pics would
Tagging, face detection could be incorporated into this single metadata
There are many other advantages as
- independence of storage location of directories,
- minimized starting up time
- keeping together pics, versioneing and metadata at selected locations
What do you think about?
digiKam version 3.2.0
