I guessed so. But it can be quite long when you modify many pictures at a
Recently, I have been shooting about 1000 pictures (average) during 10 days
in a row, and it was RAW from a 18Mpx camera.
I use to make my selection in the temporary folder before moving pictures I
keep in their definitive folder; so it's not unusual I move several hundred
pictures in one go. Given the volumes, I have not enough space on my laptop
harddrive, so everything is on removable disks.

One thing I might do differently from you is the RAW treatment: I use
Darktable instead of Digikam, to produce TIFF (even more huge, about
50Mo/picture) that are then managed in Digikam. But in most cases, Digikam
is already opened (I use it to make my selection) and folders are
immediately updated; if not, I only have to use the F5 key.

There is one thing that gives me regular headaches! When I want to select
several pictures, I use Ctrl-click to add to a selection (easier/more
precise than the click on the '+' sign that makes me deselect everything
when I click on '-' instead...); and very often, I get pictures that are
duplicated or, worse, moved in another folder and I don't see it at the
time it's being done.
I'm not sure how Digikam 'interprets' my commands, but sure it is not what
I wanted to do...

Nothing is impossible, but I don't think so.
