digiKam 5.2.0 Linux RAW Image Editor Introduces a New Red Eyes Tool, Bug Fixes

digiKam 5.2.0 is here more than a month since the previous point release, digiKam 5.1.0, and introduces a new and smarter red eyes tool that promises to automatize the entire red-eyes effect reduction operation by processing the face detection on the whole image using a new algorithm written Omar Amin during Google Summer of Code 2016. Omar Amin’s algorithm is designed in such a way that it can recognize shapes automatically, and then tries to find eyes on people’s faces that have a direct flash reflection on the retina, which causes the red eyes effect. The new Red Eyes tool is available in both the Image Editor and Batch Queue Manager.
