Description

Drag'n'drop can be a very quick way of handling images, so it would be nice to be able to, e.g.

  • drag some images onto a keyword (left sidebar) to assign that keyword to them.
  • drag keywords onto images for the same purpose
  • drag images onto film rolls to move them (or ctrl-drag to copy)
  • drag images onto existing groups to add them to the group
  • ... <your ideas here>

History

Further ideas for lighttable mode:
  • Dragging the +/- icon in the upper right corner of an image (which shows the applied styles on mouseover) to any image to apply those styles (maybe according to clicking the "create style" button a checkbox list should appear so that the user can decide which settings to apply) => up to now I always create a new style if I want to apply it to several photos and delete it after I applied it
Maybe also:
  • Drag a style from the styles list to an image to apply style to the image (if checkbox "create duplicate" is checked a duplicate of the image will be created leaving the original unchanged)

Just use ctrl-c and ctrl-v. If you want a list to select what to copy/paste use ctrl-shift-c.

Very nice ideas, Jesko. Creating a style could be as easy as dragging the history stack symbol to the style box.
Loving this.

Tobias,

the idea is to be able to use drag'n'drop. It already is possible to do these things, but drag'n'drop has the potential to make these tasks extremely simple and intuitive.

For any of these interactions, it makes sense to apply the same paradigms that are currently used in file managers.

e.g.

<ctrl>+drag switches between move and copy actions (mouse pointer indicates this)
