I don't know if you can do it with digikam, but there are many tools
that can extract the embedded Jpeg.
- if you want immediate access to a Jpeg without having to convert RAW's
or extract the Jpeg from tools, it's better to shoot RAW + JPG
- newer cameras save a full resolution JPG that is processed according
to the camera settings within the RAW. But many older cameras only embed
a lower and/or much more compressed version. So it also depends on your
Me personally always shoot RAW+highResJPG.
