Sorry for the late reply. I've been really busy lately.

Regarding the crowded UI, you know what? I was thinking about the same thing
earlier when looking at it myself. There're a few things we can do. (in
increasing order of difficulty and awesomeness.)

1. We can make a new language edit control that's single line instead of
multi-line. Unlike captions, multi-line titles makes no sense. But the
difference in screen real estate could be extremely small.
2. We can try hiding some of the other controls and adding a button to "show
advanced details". For e.g., most people probably won't ever touch the author
and date.
3. We could rearrange all the tabs. Make a basic tab for only the most common
properties from all categories and tuck everything else under a dedicated tab
of their respective categories.
4. We could make all tabs fully customizable. :-) Users can define their own
tabs and customize what properties to show on each tab. Who knows? Author name
might be useless to some and essential to others. This will allow digikam to
fit in really well to anyone's arbitrary workflow and make us totally awesome.
But might cost another ten thousand lines of code and many sleepless nights for
the brave soul who dare to try.

It all depends on how far we want to go on the UI clean up. :-)
