           Summary: Metadata sources preference when sorting images

          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: pave o2 pl

Version:           0.9.1 (using KDE KDE 3.5.7)

I've already reported my problem as a comment to closed bug #139264, but it didn't get any attention.

Currently, when digiKam sorts images, it looks first at exif DateTimeOriginal, then exif DateTimeDigitized, and if none of them is available it falls back to the filesystem date. I don't agree with the preference of DateTimeOriginal to DateTimeDigitized, at least as long as digiKam "Adjust Time & Date" feature changes only the latter.

It often happens that I collect pictures from my friends' cameras that don't have their clocks fully synchronized. Then I would like to adjust (in batches) the dates to that all pictures "fit" together. Currently this is impossible, because digiKam would still sort images using the original date that remains unchanged.
