for setting coordinates of an image without gpx file, select the picture in 
question in digikam, then go to menu "image->geolocation->edit coordinates". 
this opens a dialog where you can either enter the coordinates manually or use 
a google map to navigate to the location.
however, on my system the google map is usually not drawn immediately as it 
should be. but clicking and dragging around with the mouse in the white box 
where the map should be makes it appear, and then you can use the map as usual 
to navigate to the destination you are looking for.
clicking "ok" then assigns the coordinates to the selected picture. it should 
appear as a small cross on the marble widget now.
