With a normal sync tool the files are compared by a md5sum or something 
like that. If I tagged and rated my pictures they are not equal by 
bytes, but the images still can be the same. Thats why I really like the 
"Find duplicates" function of digikam.

Is there a plugin for dolphin to check for duplicates by something 
different than a checksum?
