I think you mean that Shotwell doesnt use the right standard? But to be honest that went straight over my head :)
I actually found a way, at least to write the Digikam tags to the IPTC keywords, since I think this wasn't working in the version of Digikam that I had installed on my Xubuntu 16.04
I was previously on version 5.5.0 (I think from the Philip Johnsson PPA - ppa:philip5/extra)
I got the updated version 5.8.0 Appimage
With this updated version, when I did
- Select all the tagged images
- item > Write Metadata to Image
it worked and now all the tags appear as IPTC keywords
However, on opening Shotwell many files have all the people tags and its a real mess
Time to give up on this
Thanks for your help

Face tags are stored in a dedicated section from XMP (standardized by Adobe), and of course, Shotwell must read this section for inter-operability.
digiKam code with tags list set :
If Shotwell do not read the standard, we cannot do it instead (:=)))...
To tag in batch, you can use Exiftool or Exiv2 CLI tool.

I have xubuntu 16.04LTS
I have used Digikam to scan for faces and to add people tags
However, I also use Shotwell, and now I cant get the tags from Digikam to Shotwell
I am trying to write them to the files in Digikam so that Shotwell will hopefully see them, but with little luck
I have found that by manually editing the IPTC keyword of a photo in Digikam then this keyword is recognised by Shotwell as a tag.
However, I cant find a way to do this for multiple photos at once, and I would like somehow to transpose the Digikam tags to this IPTC keyword
Could anyone give a simple way of doing this please?
Obviously I am not very adept at this :)
