that should also have been fixed.

hmmm, I'll think about it.

| OK. Importing images to Kimdaba isn't easy. One day before I send OP,
| tried to import few images. Copied them to ~/Images and tried to find
| them through 'Date'. Hopeless. Much easier would be:
| File->Import...
| KFileDialog, choose images, after hitting OK, appears new dialog. Set
| keywords for this import. Now I can relatively easy find these images
| later or immediately 'describe' them.
I think you miss the point of how KimDaBa stored images, you can have sub
folders etc. Only requirement is that all images have a common root.
That on the other hand is the reason why there is no import. 
KimDaBa finds new images itself.

| Also, how I can export images? Call external browser? Hmm.
Well you can generate HTML, but copy a selection out of KimDaBa is
currently not possible, with the upcomming plugin structure I anticipate
that it will be possible in the future.
