           Summary: Umask settings used for album directory, not for image
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified

        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: giaracca flashmail com

Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.6)

I'm trying to find a way to share digikam albums with other user of my machine. I managed to give write permission to the database file and to album directory.
I found the suggestion to use umask settings to allow group write to albums.
If I start digikam with the command
$ umask 0002; digikam
new albums directory are created with the correct permissions, but imported photos does not follow umask settings. AFAIK they are imported with the original permission.
So I'm asking if this is the intended behaviour or not. Why follow the umask for directory and not for image files?
Thanks for your wonderful application!
