I use Digikam 0.10 rc2 (rev 916863), and I notice some matters when I edit
metadata on my RAW files (but i should probably be the same thing with
The first thing, is if I check the option for write the default identity
item as tag, if the named tag already exist, it will be overwritten... Is
there a way to avoid this ?
A second notice is that when I check a tag in the "caption/tag" tab in the
right panel and I apply it, Digikam write IPTC and XMP metadata in the RAW
file, but, if I unchecked this tag afterall, the IPTC seems to be removed
but the XMP don't. So I don't know if it's bug, a miss or if I miss
something in configuring Digikam, but it's for me potentially problematic.
A third, less important, thing, is that when I edit and apply some
metadata, the last modified date of the file is not changed. It make sense
for me, because I use Synkron to make backup of my album, and as long
Synkron look only at modification date, it don't see any changes if I only
modify metadatas with digikam on these files. I don't know if it's
possible to set the modification date to the files attributes when
metadatas are modified, but it will be great for me.
Thanks you if someone can give me some answers.
