Description Paul Waldo 2009-04-17 19:15:14 UTC

OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

When I download images, I have Digikam set up so that it creates a date-based folder off one of the albums.  My Destination album is always the same, but I must tell Digikam this every time.  It would be nice to be able to tell Digikam in its Setup where the default target location is.  

In the Camera Client window, you could have a section that tells you where this location is, along with a check box to override.  For example, 
"[checkbox here]Download images to /My Albums/camera".  
If the checkbox is selected, Digikam just starts downloading, without asking for a target.  If unchecked, you would get the current behavior of asking for a target.

Thanks for your consideration!

digiKam Camera Interface: to speed-up downloading from camera device, a new settings
have been implemented to configure a default target album for downloading from camera.
If this option is turned off, digiKam will ask where you want to download items.
If this option is turned on, nothing will be ask to user, and download can be processed as well very quickly...
