[digiKam-users] Rename more pictures

At the moment I am not sure exactly where the problem in the renaming tool 
comes from and why a full path appears there. The "__" characters are formed 
because digiKam converts forbidden characters such as ": \". What does user 
change mean? digiKam uses absolute paths in its configuration file 
"digikamrc". We have a bug report to change this. So if you have switched from 
C:\Users\Joe to C:\Users\Joe2, you can no longer use the existing digkamrc.
