Description:

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...
===========================
about KIM:
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:
http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=11505
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
here is:
a web gallery,created with kim for 5 seconds:

a flash slideshow,created by kim for 5 seconds:

Edit: I added better screenshots,showing kim's abilities.

Edit: I added few more words to explain what i mean. Read it (on the top ;) )

Okay, I tried my best to port it.

I didn't try all the scripts, but everybody is wellcome to fix the broken ones. Shouldn't be that hard.

Find the patch and an ebuild for gentoo here:

more intelligent setup needed. kim is good but i dont need all default goodies for simple actions. all i use is resize and compress photos. besides resize i usually use to shrink, so i changed script not to grow photos which are smaler than desired size. so customize scripts to user liking would be great. add custom scripts to service menu would be better, i made one for brightening dark spots in photos but it took time.

I digged into the idea and i came up with this:

it would be great if there was a way to do this in a simple manner with a kcontrol submenu,managing kim's service menu's..

Just a question: is this menu supposed to make small operations easier, or it it ment as exhaustive image editing tool? Because the current screenshots make me think it does the latter... :-/

This is a particularly strange entry. There's not actually any substance. It's not a "KDE improvement" it's just a suggestion, without any significant contribution. Bleh.

I am also suggesting that a new panel for setting actions for different files to kcontrol is added!This way you can enable/disable different actions or install action scripts simmular to Krusader's!

It's always a bad sign when the description of an application only mentions how good and important the application is but it doesn't say absolutely nothing about the application itself. Why don't you write a description of the application and let the users and project folks decide that?

it is maintained,but there is not much more to be done to better Kim-it already has any option possible.

Just another comment on this idea (I already commented it before) : Are you willing to maintain Kim ? As I remember, Charles hardly has any time to maintain it now and is searching for someone to do so. I doubt we can include it in KDE unless it's actively maintained / developed.
