I have digiKam only  running on MS W7 but also tried to set it up on MacBoo
Air Yosemite but in wain.
My story:

At start I put the database on USB 2T drive H:\digiKam\

And Collection on removable media H\0_digital_images

Under the mother folder H\0_digital_images are all my sub folder with images

It took digiKam some minutes to scan the sub folders before the thumbnails
showed up in the Album Pane and Workspace

Later I have put in new sub folders with images and renamed some - for
digiKam it seem to be OK and the program takes a minute or two to
reorganize the albums.

I am only using digiKam a database and behind it I am working with
Photoshop/illustrator Adobe CS5.
