[Digikam-users] set metadata to both jpg and raw images in one go

Hey list.

I am a lucky owner of a Nikon D300 and am used to shoot in raw+(jpg) fine 
mode. The idea behind this is to simply use the jpg if the photo looks like it 
should be, or develop the raw image to get the most out of it where needed.

When it comes to processing with digikam i was wondering if it would be 
possible to set the image tags for the jpg and raw images in one go, or if 
there would be any other kind of synchronizing magic for that.

My workflow currently is like the following.I transfer all images from the cf-
card using a USB card reader. I configured digikam to sort all files in 
folders corresponding to the images shooting date and subfolders for the jpgs 
and nefs. After that i start tagging and ranking the jpgs. In that step i 
would like to have all corresponding nefs tagged and ranked as well.

I create 'real' albums by creating named searches using tagging, ranking and 
date metadata, which is a real fantastic feature of digikam (which - yes - 
some other win and mac apps have as well, but ...).

Is that already possible within digikam? Or is there some tool outside of 
digikam to make use of?

Best regards.
