           Summary: Converting Jpeg to PNG: Meta data lost
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Metadata
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: schmettow web de

Version:           0.9.2-beta3 (using KDE 3.5.6, Kubuntu (feisty) 4:3.5.6-0ubuntu14)
Compiler:          Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.20-16-generic

When batch converting images from Jpeg (original from camera) to PNG with "Tools->Batch process->Convert Images" metadata isn't transferred to the PNG (thus lost completely). 
Recently I was informed that with current digikam I should prefer PNG to Tiff in order to conserve metadata, so I expected this to work properly.
