I did those tests. They are in dolphin. I can open them with any image 
program (gwenview, gimp, kwickshow and now I tried showphoto, too), 
dolphin also shows a thumbnail.

I copied them on the desktop, renamed them, put them in another 
digikam-folder: digikam just doesn't like those images

If I open in gwenview, save as other name (still jpg), then digikam 
shows the new one.

There must be something in those images that disturbs digikam. I could 
understand if they were made with an exotic program, but actually they 
were resized and added metadata *with digikam batch process*, together 
with the other 23 images in the same folder - but two don't show...

Strange, isn't it?
