If you are talking about the viewer, then it is on my todo list.
On my todo list.
| Closing of preview window:
| Preview window doesn't react on KDE standard Ctrl+W. Also helpful

| dialogs in KDE. Q is nice but not standard in this DE.
| Image properties:
| How I can see image properties like size?
| Show Category Editor:
| Choice is:
| Set Close
| Shouldn't it be rather more common:
| Apply Cancel ?
nope, you can keep it open and set for many images.
| Thumbnail in main window quality:
| How Kimdaba creates thumbnails for main window? They have lower
| quality than image previews in Konqueror which is rather strange.
Thanks for telling me, I'm really bad at seeing such things.
Now I'm using a better scaling algorithm from Qt.
| Size of thumbnails in main window:
| Please make it like icons in Konq... Also file-tooltips would be
The size is configurable, I'm not sure what you want more.
| Import with keyword:
| This is the feature I miss much (or cannot find it). I would like to
| point folder and order: import all image files (*.png, *.gif, *.tiff
| - standard KFileDialog is all you need) with keywords: xxxx, yyyy.
| 'OK' trick is nice but IMO slightly immature.
I'm afraid I don't understand the above.
| In page template navigation bar is:
| <td align="center" class="navbar">< **PREV** | **INDEX** | **NEXT**
| It produces something like:
| <td align="center" class="navbar">< <a
| href="image1-fullsize.html">prev</a> | <a
| href="index-fullsize.html">index</a> | <a
| href="image3-fullsize.html">next</a> ></td>
| But what if I want to create my own theme with images instead of
| text-nav? I know, I can run sed/perl after that but it isn't very
| This thing is hardcoded into htmlexportdialog.cpp:
| link = QString::fromLatin1( "<a href=\"%1\">prev</a>" ).arg(
| namePage( width, height, prevInfo->fileName() ) );
| The only solution I see is to create themes classes: text nav or
| image nav and after checking in .themes file class use
| link = QString::fromLatin1( "<a href=\"%1\"><img
| href=\"prev.png\"></a>" ).arg( namePage( width, height,
| prevInfo->fileName() ) );
I have little to none motivation on fighting the HTML export anymore, so
please talk to teemu.rytilahti at kde-fi.org who have already worked a bit on

*sigh* you ask for additions and expect polishing.
It is indeed not easy to make everyone happy ;-)
