Hi Jesper and everybody,
I compiled kimdaba from CVS today without any problem. The thumbnails look
great now, the browser looks a lot more elegant now with the word categories
instead of images, and the sorting options are very useful.
However, I have a couple of comments:
- When I want to sort a category (e.g. persons) alphabetically the other
categories (e.g. locations, keywords) are sorted alphabetically as well. I
like this, but then we don't need to have sorting buttons in every category.
I think we might have a toolbar at the top of the dialog with the two sorting
buttons and some logical buttons ( & | ! ).
- Personally, I disagree with the replacement of "none" with "no persons", "no
keyword", etc, because it makes the label too large and not so elegant in
some cases. For example: the Spanish translation for "no keyword" has 18
characters ("sin palabras clave") while the translation of "none" has only 7
characters ("ninguno"). And it could became longer for extra categories with
long names. So, I really like better the original kimdaba format that used
the word "none" for every category.
This is from an old one:
- In the "delete images" dialog the user has two choices: "Delete images from
disk and database" and "Block from database". The problem is that it is
possible to choose both options simultaneously. If somebody wants to block an
image from the database but forget to uncheck "Delete images from disk and
database" the images will be erased from disk !
