Image links manager

Registered by Steren on 2009-10-20

**This project may be takled by students from Ecode Centrale Lyon in 2010**

The idea is to provide an easy management of these images. The user should be able to :
    * replace an image with a new one
    * edit an image with an external raster editor
    * embed an image
    * decide to store externally an embedded image
    * decide is an external image is stored with an absolute path or a relative path
    * repair broken links by selecting ONE new image, the computer is then smart enough to test if other broken links are findable considering this new image location.

Whiteboard

2010-01-15 - jazzynico: two related blueprints:
https://blueprints.edge.launchpad.net/inkscape/+spec/linked-bitmap-manager
and
https://blueprints.edge.launchpad.net/inkscape/+spec/image-properties-dialog-enhancements
Merge?

[2015-02-23 ~suv] @JazzyNico - ok to move milestone to 0.92, based on the items listed in the description (while relative paths are now enforced in 0.91, there's no GUI available to manage linked/embedded resources)?
I already moved the miletone for the related blueprint https://blueprints.launchpad.net/inkscape/+spec/image-properties-dialog-enhancements from 0.91 to 0.92.

[2015-02-26 jazzynico] @~suv - Of course. Milestone changed to 0.92. Note that a linked bitmap manager UI already exists (in https://code.launchpad.net/~centralelyon2010/inkscape/imagelinks2) but it only shows when opening a document to help repairing broken links.
