Review request for kdelibs and David Faure.


The patch allows to make thumbnail-plugins configurable by the user. One example is the JPEG-thumbnail-plugin: Some users prefer that the preview gets rotated automatically corresponding to the EXIF-information, for some users the automatic-rotating is an issue (e.g. they want to see in Dolphin/Konqueror whether the image needs to get rotated manually).

In KDE SC 4.6 we tried to bypass this issue by offering 2 plugins: One JPEG-thumbnail-plugin for unrotated JPEGs and one for automatically-rotated JPEGS. But this is just a hack as when enabling both plugins it is undetermined which plugin will be used...


  kio/kio/thumbcreator.h 51234e7 
  kio/kio/thumbcreator.cpp 4384814 



The patch has been tested by implementing a configuration option for the JPEG-thumbnail-plugin (see screenshot).
