Sorry if I already did answer this....

| I still have a problem with plugins and rotation information:
| If I put an rotation angle (e.g. 90 degree) to an image not the image is
| rotated but that information is kept in the index.xml file.
| When I put such an image to a plugin, the plugin obviously doesn't know
| anything about rotation and displays the image like it's found on my hard
| disk.
| Do you think it's possible to inform the plugins about that rotation? Or is
| it possible to create temporary rotated pictures to go into a plugin?
This should work, which plugin did you try with? I tried with the calender 
plugin, plus the border image plugin (the preview is wrong, I'm fixing that 
now)

|
| Then I found another problem with plugins:
| When I play around with your test database plugins work fine, they show the
| pictures in the database.
| If I try my own pictures the plugins don't show them.
| For example: I run the "Find Duplicate Images" plugin.
| That one gives me some duplicate images but does not show them in the
| preview. I compared the shown filenames with my KimDaBa database and see
| this pictures are similar. So the plugin was able to read the pictures but
| not able to display them.
| I wonder why my pictures are not shown. Perhaps it's because they're file
| size is to big (about 1.2-5 MB). But this is just a guess, I just don't
| know. An other guess is the resolution: They got 2560x1920 pixels.
| I ran KimDaBa from a command console to get some error messages. But it
| just didn't complain about my pictures :-(  (still no idea)
|
| I'm using KDE 3.3.0 and Qt 3.3.3 as supported by SuSE for there SuSE linux
| 8.2.
Is this still unresolved?
