Really. I'm happy to hear this sound (:=)))... If digKam auto correction can 
be better than Photoshop...

You is not the first guy to want a batch auto-level tool. Look here :


I can't export/use the auto-level algorithm from digiKam core to a 
kipi-plugins without dupplicate a huge source code (witch is weird).

Perhaps a batch processing tool coded in digiKam core is the right solution... 
It's not really complicated, but it's not a priority actually...

...or if there is an ImageMagick guru in this room, let's me hear. I use 
standard ImageMagick command line style in Bach Color kipi-plugin.
