[Digikam-users] Select/unselect a bit too small

Sorry to bump in after so much has been said. I only wanted to say that
I've often had the problem Marie-Noelle describes (that is: performing a
large selection of separate thumbnails from within a folder with many
pictures) using Ctrl-clic but, wince I release Ctrl to scroll down,
sometimes I'd miss the combination and loose my selection.

This has reminded me of the single thing I miss from my ACDsee days under
windows: the picture basket. It was (is?) a small panel under the
thumbnails where I could drag&drop pictures creating thus a list. When I
was done going through all pictures (which could belong to different
albums), I applied whatever tag or modification to all at once. The great
thing about it was that once in the basket, the selection wouldn't get away
by accident. And I would only move to the basket as many images as I had on
the screen at a given time, so no fear of losing anything when scrolling.

I think that would be a great addition to digikam.
