           Summary: Wish: Update files with metadata from DB
           Product: digikam
           Version: 1.0.0-beta1
          Platform: Debian testing
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: linux at michael-holtermann.de

Version:           1.0.0-beta1 (using KDE 4.2.4)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages


it would be nice to have the possibility to update selected image files with
metadata, instead of update *all* files in the database.

Suggested workflow:
- Import (possibly huge) images from camera
- add keywords, notes, descriptions to digikam's database
- select images or folders and choose new option "Write metadata to files"
  (this should include all metadata e.g. photographer, copyright, description,
keywords etc. in IPTC, XMP and exif).

This would gain an improved performance. I store all information in the files
for better interoperability. But every write operation to the files costs some
time, especially on large files.

Thanks in advance!
