           Summary: batchplugins usability of Target folder
           Product: kipiplugins
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kde-imaging kde org
        ReportedBy: ach mpe mpg de

Version:           0.1.2 (using KDE 3.4.3, Kubuntu Package 4:3.4.3-0ubuntu1 )
Compiler:          Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.12-10-686

Batch plugin dialogs are already quite big
and on the other hand the tree widget for
the target folder is by default only 4 item
high.  Much too less for orientation were on
is in the directory tree.

Therefore I would suggest to replace the
treewidget with a simple input field for
the target folder and replace 'new' dialog
with a powerful KDE directory browser.
[Rememberin last used target folder is
also a good idea ;) ].

This has the addional effect that the list
of images is the only widget that can varies in
height.  So one can make the default height
of the imagelist smaller, because resizing
the height makes now only imagelist bigger.
Remember the size on close and one gets a
dialog that fits into every display size.
