Re: Dates View?


yes that describes my wish.  I have Voted..Thanks for pointing that out.

I am unable to submit code but will provide feedback where I can.  I am a recent 
convert from XP and PhotoShop album and think this would help digikam 
compete well.

Thanks again...

I think that feedback and suggestions from users, experienced
with other software, is very valuable; in addition
to missing features all input related to the overall workflow
is useful!

Face detection / recognition for digikam

Hello,

Reaching my personal 10.000 photos barrier in the next weeks, I face a problem:
Tagging photos by hand is not doable anymore since it takes too much time. While setting tags for a whole
album (france, wedding, 2007) is easy and fast to do, tagging each of the 200+ photos in an album with the
people on it is impossible.

When searching for photos, you often try to find a person - how it looked at a time, or generally need all
photos of a certain person. Tags help here, but not all photos are tagged through the reason above. What I
would like to see is a plugin that automatically detects faces and allows one to drag a tag from the tag tree
on, or just add a tag to the detected face.

There are some face detection and recognition libraries out there that could be used, one well-known is the
Intel's OpenCV lib [1]. libFace [2] is another one that specializes in face rec/det and uses intel's lib internally.

Gnome's F-Spot will get this feature trough the summer of code project [3, 4]. If it gets that, it'll be my
personal killer feature to use fspot.

It would be very cool if digkam would get such a feature. And by the way, thanks for making digikam. My
girlfriend and I use it since years, and it's been unvaluable for managing our photo collection.

Re: Face detection / recognition for digikam

Hi Christian,

I think this is a very cool idea.
Could you please file a B.K.O. entry for this wish
(I would be surprised if this does not get many votes quickly ;-).

To try things out like this, the following approach might be possible
from an external script (digikam not running to have no problems
with the database)
- specify a folder for automatic tagging
- run over all images
- for each recognized tag, add this (if not yet present)
  to the database by the usual sql commands

BTW, how good are tools like this today, are they
able to recognize, rivers, lakes, sea, beach, sun, snow, flowers,
birds, ... (just for some of the typical tags ...)?
For birds an automatic recognition of the species would be
helpful (but maybe this is wishing too much ;-)

Best, Arnd

An very important: I am sure, dentist would appreciate a tool with automatic 
caries detection, at least on photos of laughing americans. 

Or even better: just select the tags and then digiKam creates the images? Now, 
this would be great :-)

Tag incremental search overall

Hi Gilles

I'm happy with digikam as it is right now ( Version 0.9.2 beta 2 ). But
I'm missing the incremental search field in the two tags filter fields. 
I have many tags. I use in the tags/comments-field the search every 
time. But outside in the tags filter, there I have to search manually.

Please, can you add the search capability to ALL tag fields ?

Yes, this would indeed be extremely helpful.

Such type of filters could also be useful for:
"My Albums" and "Searches"  on the left side-bar.

Could you please file a B.K.O entry for your wish
so that it does not get lost.

Best, Arnd

digiKam source code moved on KDE repository...

Hi all,

Just one word about last movement of digiKam source code on svn. The folders hierarchy have been redistributed especially about QT4/KDE4/CMake port.

Now, current digiKam (0.9.2-beta2) is here :

http://websvn.kde.org/branches/extragear/kde3/graphics/

and have been removed from :

http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/extragear/graphics

where only KDE4/QT4/CMake code already ported is available.

Of course digiKam will be back in trunk when it will be ported to KDE (it's planed during this summer)

Note : The same consideration can be apply to kipi-plugins, libkipi, libkexiv2, libkdcraw :

http://websvn.kde.org/branches/extragear/kde3/libs/

So development continue in this branch...

Fabien, can you update the script/info in digiKam web project page ? Thanks in advance

Gilles
