Under MacOS, digiKam use bundle as standard sand-boxing. All digiKam binary
and library are is installed in /opt/digikam/ (almost 99% of the bundle).

Some links are registered in /Applications to be visible from launpad
panel. That all.

To uninstall, Open Finder and go to Applications folder. Search digiKam
directory, and move it to the trash. Empty the trash to really remove files
definitively. Et voilĂ .

It work as expected here. /opt/digikam size is really 478Mb here:

macbook-pro-de-gilles:digikam gilles$ pwd


macbook-pro-de-gilles:digikam gilles$ ls

Applications bin etc lib libexec

macbook-pro-de-gilles:digikam gilles$ du


449840 .

macbook-pro-de-gilles:digikam gilles$

Note : remember that database and collections are untouched from this
uninstall process.
