I was wondering how you guys use Digikam's album functionnality.
I developped my own little tool some years ago to tag my images, and 
search through them. Nothing fancy, all the pictures are inside one 
album, and I can search them with tags. I am able to put tens of 
thousands of pictures into the album as I only display one section at a 
time (50 pictures per page, and next/before buttons to browse pages).

As far as I can see, Digikam load all the images of the currently 
selected album in the mainpanel.
Does it impact performance once your album grow over few thousand pictures?
Will I have to categorize my pictures in different albums to keep 
Digikam snappy?
