Service menus/set ACTIONS control center window+++
... make small operations (such as resizing images and compressing them,making them ready for internet publication)alot easier and faster.
All it uses for that is imagemagik.
You can have mpeg tools too for making mpg mives,you can have all the edvance options it has for bublication too...you can have all that.
That is why i suggested a kcontrol option for enabling and disabling ACTIONS for different file types.This way,service menus would be installed easier (if that control center window has that function too,it would be nice) aand maybe you will have the option to choose which actions that KIM is capable of is shown in your right click menu when you choose a jpg file...
kim has been around for a long time and it has served many many priceless features to kde users.
I think that it deserves to be included in kde 4.I know that it uses some other packages,such as ImageMagick and Mpegtools,for that,I suggest that if these packages are missing and kim needs them,a dialogue pops up and states they cannot be found/are not installed and asks if you would like to disable Kim from the actions submenu...
Kim is really priceless addition to kde and it deserves more attention.It deserves to be included in the default kde release!
get kim here:
I would like to also mention that Kim's install script,although fairly simple sometimes doesnt work (on some distros) and advanced users have to copy files and give them permisions,newbie users just forget about kim and never even get to try it.
I would go as far as to say that It would be great if a configure kim dialog is added somewhere to konqueror's configuration panel...or somewhere else...hmm
