[Digikam-users] Transfering Digikam to a new computer

Hi Juanita,

"counter after each tag":

  - go to "Settings" -> "Configure digikam..."
  - on the left select "Album View"
  - and check "[x] Show a count of items in Tree Views"

"missing tags":

Digikam or Exiv2 sometimes misses to write some metadata to 
the image files. (Could not reliable reproduce this, but it 
happens some times.)
To make sure all tags are written to the images, in your old 
digikam 4.5 installation:

  - make sure, you have a valid backup of your images and
    digikam db ;)
  - go to "Tags" in the left side view
  - click "Open Tag Manager"
  - click "Sync Export"
  - click "Write tags from Database to Image"

Than you have to copy all of your images to your new 
computer again.

Hope this helps.
