[Digikam-users] thumbnails stay in album after they are moved to an outside device

I don't think it's a good idea to use another tool to move files outside
Digikam : you might forget to move the sidecar XMP files, and the database
will definitely be out of sync.
Digikam let you move 'properly' images around all the collections with all
their files and associated database references. To 'send' pictures in
folders outside Digikam, you just have to use the Export function; and you
can delete images from Digikam afterwards if you really want to.
But it's a pity as Digikam can manage collection in both fixed and
removable supports.
