I've just returned from holidays where I took some photos on a laptop
hoping to sort them out using kphotoalbum. After I read your email, I
realised that I use different versions of kphotoalbum: on the laptop
3.0.2, whilst on the desktop 3.1.1. I seem to be able to move the index
file from one computer to another without any data loss.

This option is not available in 3.0.x version. If I remember correctly,
it was introduced only in 3.1.0.
