I want to start this with the obligatory heaping of praise on Jesper.
Kimdaba is really quite splendid -- the cleverest program of its sort
that I have seen so far.

That said -- it could be cleverer.  Here are a few feature requests:

1.  Is it possible to import new images while Kimdaba is running?  As
    far as I can tell, the only way to do so is to copy new images
    somewhere into the ~/Images/ (or whatever one chooses) directory
    and restart the program.

2.  It would be nice to be able to be able to do more things with the
    set of selected images.  For example, it would be very useful to
    be able to copy the set of selected images to some directory.
    Some more examples might be to fire up KMail with the selected
    images already loaded as attachements or Ark with the images
    ready to be included in an archive file.

3.  In the HTML export dialog, it would be nice if there were better
    control over the type of image file used on the html page.  I find
    myself using Kimdaba for all sorts of images, not just the ones
    from my digital camera.  PNG images suffer by conversion to JPG.
    One should be able to choose the export file type or tell Kimdaba
    to preserve the filetype of each image.
