Why so much work?

My picture archive consists of different folders,
e.g "friends" "family" "private" "general",

then sub-folders e.g general/2018/201803_whatever-you-like.

Then I use digikam's powerful extended search capabilities, and select
exactly what I want.

That is it.

Anyway, if I had pictures which are better kept private, I would store
them definitely in a separate folder where they cannot accidentally be
called up.
