Hi Ari,

Not yet (:=)))... I have recieve some mail about this subject from others 
digiKAm users. Well, the better way is to add a new option with a new dialog 
dedicaced to batch Copyrighting image using IPTC.

Please file a new wish in KDE bugzilla using this url :


Please use MetadataEdit component. Thanks in advance...
