Description Michał Kosmulski 2008-09-28 21:31:23 UTC
Version:           0.9.4 (using KDE 3.5.9)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Slackware Packages

Template superimpose is a nice filter, but it permanently changes the image. If I want both the original and the modified version, I need two separate files.

It would be nice to be able to overlay a template or arbitrary graphics over an image, but only for displaying in the image editor/slide show. The merged file would not be stored on disk, instead only metadata saying "when displaying image A, superimpose image B" would be stored. A typical use would be the ability to circle some areas of the image to highlight some important but small or otherwise non-obvious element. In this scenario, one wants the circle (actually, this would normally be just a line manually doodled with the mouse and not a real circle) to be overlaid on the image but not saved in the image file, and to be able to quickly toggle the displaying of the superimposed image. For such functionality, a very basic drawing interface would be great (just the ability to select a few brush sizes and brush color and to draw simple lines with the mouse would be enough).

Remove SuperImpose tool from digiKam image editor. This one been pretty old and used yet Qt3 support class.
PhotoLayoutEditor tool from kipi-plugins must be used now instead. Template support using SVG file have been
added by Lukas during Coding Sprint 2012 at Genoa. It will be avaialble for next release 2.6.0.
