            Bug ID: 375519
           Summary: Progress bars waste useful space
           Product: digikam
           Version: 5.4.0
          Platform: Compiled Sources
                OS: OS X
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: ProgressManager
          Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: bcr at wt.net
  Target Milestone: ---

All the current progress bars don’t offer a lot of value to justify themselves
when shown
in larger form. Its ok to show % complete in the permanent one at the bottom of
the window
but the larger popup ones represent wasted opportunities.

Additional items that could be shown in the same space:

* current file path   (very useful - confirms to user if operating on expected
* items remaining
* estimated time remaining

Instead of this vacant thing:

 [                              15%                       ]

...provide this instead:

 [  2015/05/14/Paris/eiffel.png        15%        4.5 min ]

If the file paths are too long to fit then trim from the right, showing the
current folder
is more useful than the actual file:

[  2015/05/14/Pa…   15%   4.5 min ]
