Your script seems so interesting, some days ago I was thinking of something
similar, as I have a similar IT *infrastructure *for sharing DK's pictures
at home, so such a script would be amazing. I'll try to test it during this
week. Thank you very much for sharing!

> (and other files) from the digikam database based on rating, tags or album
> name and put copies somewhere else (e.g. on a NAS). The images can
> optionally be resized or recompressed using ImageMagick's "convert"
> utility. It is also possible to create symlinks or hardlinks saving space,
> only referencing matching images.
> I use this for the rest of my family: once a day digikam-select.rb selects
> all images tagged "for-Family", recompresses them using ImageMagick and
> recreates my album structure on our home NAS using these recompressed
> images. These folders are available to all family members and also
> automatically synced to our family Android tablet.
> So any time we want to go visit friends and maybe show some pictures we
> just grab the tablet and are sure only "suitable" images (but all good
> ones) are on there!
> There are many possible use cases, this is just one of them. Have a look,
> try it out, report bugs (on Github)!
> Thanks & enjoy,
