[Digikam-users] Questions about Tags on Android and Web

Thanks for the update!

As far as I understand it Digikam saves metadata to several tags:

The first three are hierarchical, the two last are not. I think F-Spot only
writes the "Subject" tag, I don't know which ones it reads.

Note that F-Spot might be configured to not write metadata to the files on
the fly, if so you need to tell it to write the tags. Also, there are
problems with write access to memory cards on some Android versions.

I have not tried the digikam metadata syncing.
