[Digikam-users] the RAW + JPE mode

I just shifted from 0.9.0-beta2 to the beta3 and there are again a lot 
of improvements. Digikam Hurrah ! ;-)

I have to say that the problem I was reporting back in september about 
"very odd color saturation" on raw pictures has vanished away.

But on to my point, I am still using RAW pictures but I have decided to 
shoot in RAW + JPG mode as I get for free (save the space on my card) a 
small jpeg picture as well as the raw picture. Now Digikam imports all 
this very well and store it in its database.

However it doesn't seem that Digikam does more than that.

In fact I would like to use these JPGs (extension ".jpe" for minolta) 
for quick picture selection after coming from a WE of shooting. In fact 
when you come back with 300+ pictures, I do a first selection and erase 
all pictures that are out of focus or without interest (understand 2/3 
of the pictures).

Today in the view mode, Digikam is using a very low quality thumbnail 
from the RAW picture. It doesn't really allow to see if the picture is 
in focus or not. May Digikam use the ".jpe" instead? Is there some 
way/option for me to enable that? Besides when a particular picture is 
deleted, the .raw + .jpe should be deleted in the same time.

What do the Digikam community thinks?
