A feature I miss with krename or any other renaming tool is a way to massively edit file embedded metadata for formats that support it (mp3, jpeg ...).

It would be really cool to be able to change not to only the title but also exif metadata. Will it be able to ?

Note Reading exif metadata like the shot time would also let the user sort pictures from several cameras (with different naming scheme) in the right chronologic order before renaming them all.=> very usefull when collecting all the pictures after a mariage ;) - Mar 11 2008

I agree, the interface is lovely simple. Reverse encoding... why not.

My question is: how does it work? Does it only find and extract the avi sequence embedded inside the flv file or does it do a re-encoding? (In the second case there would be a loss of quality) - Apr 22 2007

This solution is great. I didn't know about it. So far I used "alltray" (http://alltray.sourceforge.net/) to do that, but ksystraycmd does it much better. Thanks for the tip!!

However, alltray allows "close button reduces window to tray", ksystraycmd does not! - May 09 2006

i can not install it within my user account );
I had to intall it as root, what I do not really like as it is not (currently) part of my distro.

but I really enjoy it anyway
A more customizable intall could just make it better

thanks for the hard work

And why did a student make linux while many OS existed?
And why did nice guys make KDE while gnome exists?
You get it! Just because they thought things could be better(or simply different) a slightly different way.

The best solution I can imagine is passing the user experience at the command line level, beginner being default.

This way you make sure that only administrators and people having some basics in Linux will be able to access dangerous options.

I'd really like to have such a possibility to let my mother use kcontrol on her machine.

Whatever, the idea is good this is a way to merge simplicity and high configurability in a single OS.

I think we should first care about what users want while you tell us about what you want.
Moreover, I read that KDE philosophy is to give users choice, to please purists as you seem to be as well as my mother who barely understand what is a file.

Some aspects of windows are bad and some are not. Whatever, we should learn from both. - Feb 15 2005
As a "normal" user (or HUI for Highly Incompetent User) I didn't know about the possibility to filter files, and I don't even know what's a "mimetype"...

If this soft can do it for me it is fine. At least it increases for me KDE's usability.
Eventually, I agree it has to do it a clean way, fitting the global desktop architecture not to make it more complicated. - Feb 15 2005

I just discovered and tested this application. i tried it with imagemagick 6.1.7. it works well

I think this is a very good application missing just few things to be almost perfect (for me)

what i suggest
- bigger font for steps title and long description to make the process more clear in mind.
- step 7: the third option should be "COPY and convert images". I was doubtful and scared of loosing data, so i had to save images before giving this option a test (was confusing by option 2 which does state "copy and ....")
- step 1 a third option "configure kallery" with some options such as default paths/relative paths, load foders recursively or not ...to get a simlified interface where it is pertinent

What i liked in it:
- does almost everything i was waiting from it
- does nothing more and useless

what i really liked:
- it is simple, light and standalone application. The interface is just a wizard without menu, tabs ... it is ... fresh :)

i'll keep using kallery

NB thanks to you for the quick (and efficient) answer to my bug report for image magick 6.1.X - Jan 07 2005
