i have several empty albums in digiKam as a result of using the "import folders" option <br><br>for instance, i've imported a folder such as /home/username/public_html/websiteFolder<br><br>though some of the sub-directories of that folder contain images, many of them do not. i was expecting the function to find images and import them-- for digiKam to then display only those folders which contain the images-- but instead, it seems to have imported the entire directory structure, whether images or no images exist.
<br><br>obviously this does not make for an efficient catalogue of images as it is little different than using Kongqueror to browse every folder, manually looking for image files. <br>to improve the accuracy of the catalogue, i'm guessing that i would want to delete those empty "albums", but perhpas this is not the recommended approach.
<br> <br>"empty album", or empty "directory" maintenance seems a complicated action because the appearance of an "empty" folder seems misleading-- when selecting to delete it, i receive a confirmation dialogue which reveals subfolders within that "empty" album, which may or may not contain images (as there appears to be no indication either way).
<br><br> what is the most efficient way to remove the empty directories from the digiKam album list?<br>how should i approach the "import folder" function in the future to avoid gathering empty directories?<br>
