Excellent! Thank you very much Peter!

It has been a very long time since I worked on a linux based system. I am
using digikam 3.2.0 right now, I would love to be able to use the feature
talked about on that link you gave, but since I'm unfamiliar with the way
things work with linux right now, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with
that .tar file once I download it. Is it an addon that will install
automatically? Or is it a new version of the program or...? 

Sorry for being such a n00b! But I'd very much appreciate your help to get
that feature working for me! :)

Hi Kimberly,

welcome to digikam. ;)

I use digikam with linux, so I am not very familiar with KDE under windows.
In general you can configure tooltip colors with KDE's "System Settings"
dialog. Open this configuration tool (in linux, I start it from the "start
menu") and go to "Application Appearance" -> "Colors"
There you can find "Tooltip Text" and "Tooltip Background"
under the "Colors" tab.
I use the color scheme "oxygen cold", which gives black text on light blue
background. This works well for me.

As for the "list view":
Have a look at http://www.digikam.org/node/694 Gilles describes "a new album
interface display mode named list-view". Perhaps this could help you.
But I use digikam 3.1.0 at the moment, so I can't test it.

Hope this helps.
