Digikam download dialog does more than that

Digikam download dialog does more than that

Digikam's download dialog has some nice features that you do not mention.

It can automatically rename photo files as it downloads them. The names
can be based on a simple pattern and/or contain the date and time that the
photo was taken. This can be very useful for avoiding duplicate file names
when the camera reuses a name.

The dialog also provide access to the full image and to any EXIF data that
the camera records.

In addition, if the camera records orientation information in the image,
the image can be automatically rotated as it is downloaded.

I look forward to your full review of image management applications in the
near future. I hope that you manage to build an up to date version of
digikam for the review, as more image editing features have been appearing
in the CVS version in resent weeks.
