I'm using Digikam to organzie my photos and use the direct import from my Nikon camera. Using JPEG pictures, I can select some of them by the preview and import pictures selectively into different albums.

When I took RAW photos, it looks like this: Screenshot

Is it possible to have Digikam to show me the RAW-internal preview pictures?

Using Version 4.4.0.

To the comments: It is possible to see the pictures after they have been imported. So it's not a question of installed codecs.

My installed version 4.4.0 is from November 2014, but I can update to 4.6.0 from this January.

I'm using a Nikon D7000 camera.

    \$\begingroup\$ Seems like old problem in digikam. I am not sure if version 4.4 > 4.13, but please check this thread: forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=213&t=101042 and try to update the software \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 30, 2015 at 9:16

Updating to version 4.6.0 helped. Now, the preview is also in the import window :)

Thanks anyway for your support.
