Finding my way through the digiKam code

Hi,

As I have problem with resizing pics with digiKam >=4.x I thought this
is a good oportunity to get to know the code of the beloved digiKam.

I have started to look at the editor code but if someone could point
me in a direction on where to continue looking!

My problem seems to be that after a resize operation has finished, the
editor doesn't know about the new size of the image. E.g. the zoom
factor box in the bottom of the editor window shows a bogus zoom. I.e.
the zoom factor of the original image. So for example, how is that box
populated after a resize operation?

One example:
My Canon EOS 50D images are 4770x3177px in size and show up as zoom
factor 31% in fullscreen editor and image set to fit window. If I
resize the image to e.g. 500x333px the zoom still says 31%. Still fit
to window. So there is something odd going on there.

Any pointer would be appreciated!

Not all images displayed in thumbnail view

Gilles,
I noticed a strange behavior of DK 4.4.0 on my system: several images of
a sub-directory (sub-folder) are not being displayed in thumbnail view,
others are. Rescanning or rebuilding thumbnails in the relevant folder
did not solve the problem. Also rebuilding the entire database (sqlite)
was not successful. I had renamed a few of the images outside of DK
using the Unix "rename" command after DK's initial read in of the
images. Could that have caused the problem? My understanding was that DK
at each opening of a sub-folder rechecks the content of the folder
against the database entries and corrects the database if necessary? Am
I wrong on this or what might have caused the problem? What can I do to
force DK to display thumbnails of any image in any sub-folder?
Best, Robert

Problem with neon effects


I'm finding a problem when using the neon effect. When I'm in the Color
Effects tool and select neon I see one thing, but when I click on OK and
return to the main Image Editor screen the image changes. The colors are
decidedly different. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Is it OK to attach a couple of sample images to a post? I've reduced
them to about 500KB each.

I found a trivial way to do this from DigiKam in a
batch-processing-style manner in KDE:

1. Select your RAW files in DigiKam
2. Right-Click and select "Open with"
-> Pick "others"
3. Enter dcraw -e into command box.
-> klick OK

You could edit the file types in Konqueror/Dolphin and add something
like "Extract JPEG from RAW" to RAW or PEF, so you wouldn't have to type
the command name each time.

Best

Niels

Dear list,

The root of my photo-directory is the root-album of DK. Now I mounted an FTP-
site in the root for easy access, to drag and drop photo's there for
publishing.

Of course, all photos I copy to FTP show up in DK as well, because the folder
is mounted inside the collection tree. I find it rather inconvienient to have
the same image displayed more than once.

I could rearange my collections, so that all the other directories under
photos/ are separate collections, thus excluding photos/ftp, but it would
easier if I could name some directories to exclude from the settings.

Is that possible?

Best regards,

Boudewijn

Deleting a grouped image

When I delete an image that belongs to a group, the number of grouped pictures (written upon the folder icon in the group head thumbnail) doesn't seem to be updated. I had to dissociate the remaining pictures, the re-associate them in order to get the right number.

usb collection

Hello,

I have many photo collections on a 4Tb external usb drive.

This one is only mounted when necessary.

1) unlike Dolphin, Digikam is not able to mount the drive "on demand" I 
have first to open any folder in dolphin, then start digikam.

2) Digikam starts scanning all the disk collection automatically, even 
when there is no change. This takes around *one hour*!

is there a way to prevent digikam from scanning the disk?

thanks

Metadata edit

Can you edit metadata with showFoto?

Any reference I can find on the Internet implies that you can, but I can find no way to turn on the editor.

I am using showFoto version 3.5 running in openSuse 3.1

Thanks... Tom.
