Bug ID: 331167
Summary: Import images from folder- create date based folders
from image exif
Platform: Ubuntu Packages
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
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"
One sub album is created based on the date of import (i.e. 'today').
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
