            Bug ID: 331167
           Summary: Import images from folder- create date based folders
                    from image exif
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Import
          Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: brylie at gnumedia.org

When importing images from my hard drive into digiKam, via the Import >> Add
Images command, there is an option for Auto-creating albumbs based on date. The
albums created seem to be based on the import date, rather than the date the
image was taken.

How can I use this auto-creation feature to create albums based on the EXIF

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy some images to a hard drive folder
2. Click Import >> Add Images (Ctrl-I)
3. Under "Auto-creation of Albums", select "Date-based sub-albums"
Actual Results:  
One sub album is created based on the date of import (i.e. 'today').

Expected Results:  
Sub-albums would be created based on the image creation date (from EXIF). This
is how the import from camera feature works.

Having the ability to automatically create EXIF based sub albums would offer
more efficiency than a single import date based sub-album. E.g. I can easily
create a single folder and import all images into that folder. It is more time
consuming to import, manually create sub-albums, and then sort the images into
the sub-albums.
