            Bug ID: 323559
           Summary: Wich: Albuns like Playlists in Amarok
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Kubuntu Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR

Firstly, my compliments to the dev team: digiKam is an amazing app, and has
features that, i believe, please even professionals.

Secondly, IMHO (I'm a newbie and not a professional), its albums concept -
(sub-) directories with copies of the original pictures - is very poor and
doesn't match the quality of the app. Amarok's playlists concept is much
better, more practical and easier to understand and use: the files - which can
have as many tags as in digiKam's - are stored where the user wants; when
he/she wants to create a playlist, even with songs with mixed tags, just drags
the files to the playlist area, reorders them at will and saves the playlist to
the database with a meaningful term. Since a photo can "belong" to "n" albums,
this approach is perfect: the file is "unique", but can be presented in a
variety of contexts and situations.

My compliments again to the team for a superb job.

Reproducible: Always
