as preview, but draws rectangles and writes names, is a bit annoying and pe=
rsonally I think should be avoided at all costs as it will make digikam bul=

<div><br></div><div>Much as possible, the functions should be kept in digiK=
am main window. If we can keep external windows in minimal it is better. No=
w we have digiKam mainwindow, showFoto (Image Editor when launched from dig=
iKam main), Batchmanager, Advanced Search, HDR (Bracketing photos) at least=

<div>By my opinion, we would need a somekind "task" manager what =
would show all sub-tasks going. The separated window is nice some cases, li=
ke album and editor. Where you can have them both open in two monitor sets.=
 But I think the batchmanager and advanced search could be merged to digiKa=
m main window if we could have a "progress going" -list easily ac=

<div><br></div><div>I believe that would help in most cases as well. Like t=
he other GSoC project of non-destructive editing and the editing in whole. =
You could set wanted edits for preview in very fast way, and then they woul=
d be calculated to full image in background. And user could easily just cha=
nge to next photo to edit it, without need to wait the calculations to be e=
nded. The separated window does is for me like a "hack" for this.=
 Because we can do something else in other window when waiting other. But w=
e can not do on same window different tasks.=C2=A0</div>

<div><br></div><div>In this case the face tagging is something what can do =
things automatically and it should go in background, but in error cases (an=
d those will happend) there is need to allow user to interact well. And in =
that case, there is no need to continue the task in other window. (we human=
s can not do a multitasking at all with computers). But as the face tagging=
 process does not pause when there is=C2=A0unrecognised=C2=A0face, we can c=
ontinue other tasks and return to problems in later. So if we can not get a=
nykind "task progress -list", the separated window is needed. But=
 I would take it only if there is impossible way to get tasks-list in time =
but only later so we can integrate separated windows tasks to it and so get=
 rid off the separated window.=C2=A0</div>

<div>=C2=A0</div><blockquote class=3D"gmail_quote" style=3D"margin:0 0 0 .8=

If we can't bring detection speed to something manageable, on my dual c=
ore it takes 2.5 secs but not everyone has dual core, then I think Michael&=
#39;s idea of adding extra tab on left side is a very sensible one. Perhaps=
 that is also where found/known faces/people should go too.<br>

</blockquote><div><br></div><div>The sidepanel is better choise than separa=
ted window. We could use the main window for "unrecognised=C2=A0faces&=
quot; thumbnails and selecting names etc. But what if we would separate it =
to two tabs? Like right now we have the powerfull tag function on both side=
s. We can manage in such manner the tags what is not possible any other app=
lication. We can select wanted tags and add/remove tags to/from those easil=

<div><br></div><div>Is there a need for such function for faces? In the end=
, they are tags and the face tags has need to have tag-tree (family trees e=
tc). But what separates the face tag from other tags, is that they does not=
 change after they have once set. John does not turn to be Lisa in some pho=
tos (unless change names or sex ;) ) while in some it would stay such.</div=

<div><br></div><div>So is there need for left being a "persons" t=
ab while on right there would be the face tagging tab? The left one only wo=
uld filter and search persons. Just like now we can use it very easily as o=
nly sidepanel when showing photos for friends and family. No need to bring =
edit functions to shown, what all are located to right side of digiKam.</di=

<div><br></div><div>On right side tab we could have the face tagging and wh=
at would work more like the tagging, user drops photos over tag or tag over=
 selected photos.=C2=A0</div><div>And top of the tag-list on _left_ side pa=
nel is the the entry "unrecognised" what shows=C2=A0recognised fa=
ces but unfamiliar faces. And then user could easily just tag them from rig=
ht side. Under the thumbnail could be=C2=A0guess=C2=A0who is=C2=A0the perso=
n and accept it or not.</div>
