That sounds interesting.  It may be just what I want.
1) I have kipi plugins 4:2.5.0 installed.  I have seen them being
discussed on this list, but have not looked into them myself.

Can you point me to something that will show me how to use them?  Do I
have to modify KPhotoAlbum or another program to access them?
