Hi Gilles

Here are two other pictures:

 http://www.daniel-bauer.com/gilles/PICT0001.JPG and

taken by my niece with a Konica/Minolta dimage x1 pocket camera, one taken 
turned to the left, the other to the right. Hope you can use them :-)

If you can use it, I can send two more photos tomorrow taken with an "old" 
Nikon Coolpix of a friend of mine.
b.t.w.: Hey, yesterday I used the digikam "free rotation", "cut to aspect 
ratio" and "insert text" for the first time: what great tools, again! 
Earlier, in photoshop, I had to open the image (you know in windows: 
click-cklick, click-click... never ending...), add a "help line", measure its 
angle, choose "rotate image", enter angle, click-cklick, click-click..., then 
enter the aspect ratio for the select tool in two different fields, draw the 
selection, cut, save, click-cklick, click-click... etc. 

Now I am about ten times faster. Especially the automatic cutting of rotated 
pictures saves so much work, it's just great. Not to talk about the 
cutting-tool with the mask - a visible help I very much missed before.

If I can attach a small wish to the "insert text" tool: would it be possible 
to remember the position of the last insert? (It already remembers text, 
size, color etc., which is just great, but as I have to insert my copyright 
marks in most of the pictures at the same position, it would be nice, if it 
would already be where I placed it in the last picture...). Nothing 
important, this, just if you feel bored one day and have nothing else to 
do :-))
