Also thumbnails in file-tooltips has crappy quality.

Buttons to zoom in. Having small thumbnails has sense when there is 100
images at once. But when number of images is reduced to eg. 5 having
them very small has no sense. It would be sensible to make them
larger/smaller on demand, not through configuration settings.

OK. Importing images to Kimdaba isn't easy. One day before I send OP,
tried to import few images. Copied them to ~/Images and tried to find
them through 'Date'. Hopeless. Much easier would be:
File->Import...
KFileDialog, choose images, after hitting OK, appears new dialog. Set
keywords for this import. Now I can relatively easy find these images
later or immediately 'describe' them.

Also, how I can export images? Call external browser? Hmm.

And one more thing. Showimg should be excluded from external viewers. It
tries to show thumbnails of whole base directory. I have only 300 images
but someone with few thousands...

OK.
