thanks for improving Digikam.
Now I use DigiKam 4.10.0 on openSUSE 13.2
Maybe my questions are related to my (wrong) work flow?
First my hardware configuration:
My pictures are placed on a NFS-share on my server directly imported to
local machine via fstab
for this my digikam4.db and also my thumbnails-digikam.db is on local hd
DigiKam is configurated to store all metadata in picture (I have a
backup in a safe place!)
My question now is: Is the face rectangle also stored in picture or is
it in database?
I ask this because I had problems when choosing all pictures (~ 95.000
pictures) in one part than generating thumbnails and fingerprints
crashes DigiKam. For this I only choose a part of all of pictures to get
faces named but will I loose this named faces now when choose only other
part of pictures?
If faces are stored in pictures and there will be no loss What can I do
later to get access to all pictures including fingerprints and thumbnails?
Maybe my observation is related to some wrong work flow but I see
several times that after I ordered faces to pictures next time I start
DigiKam again some faces are connected to wrong name.
After this I can't find a solution to bring this faces back to
"unknown". Even if I choose this tag and I hit "OK" there is no change
and I can not confirm in any other way. Do I make a mistake here?
Only option is to delete the face rectangle completely or to confirm
that this is no face - but both is not I want to do.
I would like to bring this faces back to "unknown" because some of this
faces I do not know and if I have them in one place every visitor can
easily help me to name this "unknown faces".
Thanks in advanced
PS Do you see a chance to get the mysql database back on server so we
can use same database from several client machines (not at same time)?
