[Digikam-users] Preview is "better" than RAW conversion?

Hi there,

I take my pictures with a Pentax K-7 in PEF format. When I view the PEFs
in DigiKam, they usually look quite nice already.

However, when I use the RAW converter to convert a batch of images, I
just don't manage to make them look as good as in the preview.
Especially the contrast is often too low. I don't know what's going on here.

It doesn't matter really to me for good shots which I manually "develop"
in the image editor, but for giving someone a bunch of pictures, it's a
shame that those images always look flawed compared to cheap jpeg
shooters. 8-)

If DigiKam does quite well automatically in Preview, why can't it also
ofter the same automatic quality in the RAW converter?
