Great choice. I myself began using KPA something like two years ago and have
about 6000+ photos/videos in my db :-).

I have a question about working with supercategories. If I make a

If I'm not mistaken, I guess you're using a 3.0 release. There has been some
really recent dev (in the code since last week) to avoid being able to put
cycles in the category management.

So, when you're speaking about seeing France in France, this shouldn't
possible anymore with the next release, so I guess this point won't have
existence in the near future.

Am I right? Is this the behaviour you're speaking about?

What is your opinion about it?

I never use it, but I seem to remember that there's a description field in
the annotate dialog. I'll check tonight (no kpa at work :p).
