KPhotoAlbum for KDE 4 released
May 11, 2009
After years of migrating efforts KPhotoAlbum for KDE 4 was finally released today. Download
KPhotoAlbum 4.0 is mainly a port from KDE 3 to KDE 4, but it does contain one major new feature, namely stacking, and a number of minor polishing.
Image stacking allows you to mark a number of images to be the same shot (think 10 images of Grand Canyon being almost the same, or a raw image converter and cropped in different ways).
- It is now possible to search for images with changed MD5 sum - very useful for searching for corrupted image files.
- It is now possible to configure the aspect ratio in the thumbnail viewer
- "Show this image" will now load all images in current view, thus making pressing Ctrl+A optional.
- Recognize .flv and .erf files
- In the annotation dialog there now is a new button for copying the annotations from the previous image.
- Display a warning instead of black screen when current image can't be shown in the Viewer
- Support PEF, a raw format from Pentax' DSLRs.
- Add Edit->Copy for copying a list of URLs to selected images to clipboard.
- Automatically hide mouse cursor and disable screensaver when in Viewer
- Add Edit->Open List of Files menu that shows list of thumbnails that matches user-entered stuff.
- The import dialog will now check if an image already exists in the DB with the same MD5 sum, and offer to merge the information about the images.
- Keywords has now been replaced with Events in the default setup that people will get when they create a new database.
