Hi Carsten,

I consider myself also still not a pro, but checked out this already a bit.
The biggest question there is where do you store your pictures? NAS?
Separate partition?

There is no feature for this, but you can add multiple paths in the Digikam
Database manually and then it (somehow) finds the correct one.
