I'm not sure if someone already suggested this...

It would be nice if digikam could create thumbnails when downloading
images, why don't add this function to the download dialog? It could be
done adding a checkbox "generate thumbnails" to the dialog, so if
someone is interested he/she could activate the function.

I'm thinking of that days when I return from a long photo session with a
lot of RAW pictures (you know, sometimes I shot more than 1 GB of photos
in a week-end), and want to filter, classify and editing them after
dinner: I could start the download job before dinner and find everything
ready for processing after.
