Currently the application makes heavy use of modal dialogs to notify user.

e.g
* New files detected in the watched folders. Do you want (to) import them? [Yes] [No]
* The files listed where not imported. [Close]
* The imported files contain IPTC tags. To you wish to import them?
* Update EXIF/IPTC [OK] [Cancel] when pressing CTRL-SHIFT-I.
* ...
A lot of user experience improvement could be made by adding options to automatically accept these actions.
Even sweeter would be if each of these dialogs would contain a checkbox-option. : [] "Remember my choice" or "Do not ask this again"

The reason for my request.
Importing 15000 images from a nas drive, can take several hours. Starting it and watching it progress a few minutes to do a wild guess on how many hours it will take. At the end of the day come back to the machine to discover that the progress is blocked at 100 files because it found an image containing IPTC tags and requesting to import it.
Very irritating Smile

(UPDATE - added Update EXIF/IPTC as example of dialog)
