[Digikam-users] Import of many photos

Same problem here, as I'm used to tag photo by dozens. Digikam is still
working in the background when I tag the next few ones, then others ... I
sometimes had to wait for about 2 hours till it finished! In the past, I
even thought it was completely frozen, as the progress bars in the low
right corner doesn't seem to move; in fact, it says the same thing for
everey picture, so one cannot see if it is actually working or completely
I don't use face detection, rotating has already been done before. So I'm
only tagging, writing description and such on pictures that have been
imported and edited a while ago.
