Thank you for your prompt reply. What I meant with migrating is merely
an upgrade form let say digikam 1.8 to digikam 2.0. When I did such a
digikam upgrade, all my tags related to the pictures I have, were lost
in the new version of digikam. And it happened several times. What I
want to know is how to preserve all the tags without entering upon every
upgrade of the digikam software.
