I have to come back to an earlier discussed topic.
Yesterday I got the latest version of digikam, digikamimageplugins and
exiv2 and compiled them successfully.
The way I handle my pictures is, that I place my originals in a
directory called Original that is below the directory where the changed,
improved picture goes.
Today I edited one of the originals, entered a comment and selected
several tags. Then I saved the image with "save as" in the above directory.
After saving the comments and tags where gone. They just disappeared.
Now I move forward to the original image. And .... here are the comments
and all tags. Back to the changed image, still no comments, no tags.
I close image editor and have a lock in album view where are my images.
The original is there, the changed one doesn't show up.
I exit digikam and start it again.
Still, my changed pic is not there. So I go back to the original, do the
changes again, and then I am about to save the pic and, what a wonder,
in the "save as " dialog the missing picture shows up.
But this time the data doesn't get lost.
This is the only time when it happened ( till now ).
NOTE : I had before digikam beta3 installed with its plugins. I
installed the new digikam right over the old one. I don't know if this
can cause such trouble.
