            Bug ID: 374470
           Summary: Deleted tags are not removed from file metadata
           Product: digikam
           Version: 5.4.0
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Tags
          Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: freisim93 at gmail.com
  Target Milestone: ---

Steps to reproduce:
1. Enable writing image tags to metadata (either with or without lazy sync).
2. Create a tag and apply it to one file.
3. Delete this tag in the right tag sidebar.
4. Confirm the prompt warning that this tag is assigned to one item.
5. Reread metadata from file.

Expected results:
The deleted tag stays deleted.

Actual results:
The deleted tag is resurrected and shown as applied to the test image.

This is not https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=361378 as the tag is correctly
removed from the file when it is explicitly removed for just that file. This
only occurs on deletion of the tag itself.

The documentation states:
    You can delete a tag by right-clicking on the tag you want to delete and
    selecting Delete Tag. When you delete a tag, the photographs themselves are
    not deleted. Simply the tag is removed from those photographs.

This is currently only true for the database, not for the image metadata.
