Hello to everybody,
I just tried to reorganize keywords with digikam 0.10rc2 that were created
with digikam 0.9. The option to store keywords in the files metadata is
activated in both versions.
What I noticed is that digikam 0.9 will store hierarchical keywords in IPTC
section with the complete path. So a keyword hierarchy like
"/location/germany/frankfurt" would be visible as such in IPTC data if the
keyword "frankfurt" was selected where frankfurt has "germany" and "location"
as keyword parents.
In digikam 0.10 I do not find the hierarchy anywhere inside the photos
metadata (not in IPTC and neither in XMP). What I find in the scenario from
above would be the single keyword "frankfurt" inside IPTC and XMP?
Is this a bug or a feature? What would eg happen if I insert Metadata from a
file into digikams database where one keyword was orginally part of two
different hierarchies like "frankfurt" belonging to
"/location/germany/frankfurt" and "/cities/frankfurt"?
What would happen if digikams database would get lost or corrupted? Would
digikam 0.10 be able to reconstruct the keyword hierarchies from the photos
metadata? Or would I end up with a flat hierrarchy of keywords then? I think
in 0.9 the hierarchy would be reconstructed from the files metadata but in
0.10 I think it wouldn't?
Thanks a lot
