Hello and thanks for your work.
I'm new to digikam and IPTC.
My understanding is that
. "tags" in digikam may be stored as IPTC keywords (i.e. in the IPTC "Keyword"
. this field is 64 byte wide and can only store full ASCII characters
. IPTC has many other fieds (such as location, ...) which can be hand-edited
by a kipi plugin (through the Image menu).
My questions are :

. when I save my digikam tags as IPTC metadata : how can I be sure I don't
overflow the header size ? What happens if I do (does the flag name gets
. does it make sense to have a digikam tag representing the picture location
since it will be saved in the keyword header, instead of in the maybe more
appropriate location IPTC header ?
