Set display date format

I have a lot of images that where scanned from old pre-digital photos.
I have set the dates to when the photos where taken. for example, I
have a photo from 1905.

digikam is showing the date of this photo as 05/05/05. I would prefer
to see the long date: May 5, 1905. How can this be configured, both in
the album view and in the date editor.

By the way, I am using digikam 4.8.0 on Ubuntu 14.04 (native Unity UI).

Some considerations concerning running digiKam on a Mac

I have been using digiKam for 10 years, starting with version 0.10.0 in 2005, under GNU/Linux, and, from the
beginning, found it to be the very best foto management program for my needs. (Thanks a lot to the
developers for this outstanding software!)

In August 2012 I bought a 15" Macbook Pro with retina display (because of the retina display), and it was a
revelation in terms of hardware quality, speed, stability and, above all, brilliancy, accuracy and
sharpness of the display. Never before had I been able to admire my (and other) photographs in such
perfectness (and also, had never before so clearly perceived the defects of many of them...). Since then,
a normal full HD display seems just coarse to me.

But - digiKam was (and is) not available for the Mac OS X, at least not as a native build, like e. g. Gimp and
RawTherapee. And iPhoto, compared with digiKam, I found to be just a nice toy. So what I did was to install
Linux, more exactly: KUbuntu, on my Macbook beside Mac OS X. This worked well, with a few drawbacks like
suspend mode, which never worked, and the behaviour of the trackpad and mouse, which reacted, under
KUbuntu, not as fast and exact as under Mac OS X. Also, since I used the native resolution of the retina
display (because I wanted to be able to see my photographs with their real resolution), text and symbols in
the menu and text boxes were really tiny, so that you almost needed a magnifying glass for them. 

I put the pictures on a separate non-journaled hfs+ partition which could be read and written both by Mac OS X
and KUbuntu. So far, so good. But the great disadvantage of this method was, that I needed to shutdown Mac OS
X, reboot the computer and start KUbuntu, when I wanted to work with digiKam, and vice versa, when I wanted
to do other work under Mac OS X. And I do need Mac OS X, above all for Sigma Photo Pro, which is the raw converter
for my Sigma cameras ond only available for Windows and Mac.

When the iMac 5K appeared on the market last autumn, it was clear to me that this was just what I wanted. In
February I bought it, and again, it was a revelation to me: now finally I was able to see my photographs in
full size in their original resolution. The quality and brilliancy of this monitor is just overwhelming.
This time I did not even try to install also Linux beside Mac OS X, but, instead, installed Arch Linux with
just the KDE base packages and digiKam with all it's dependencies in a virtual machine (VirtualBox), and
this works perfect. My pictures are in the pictures directory which I made accessible from inside the

Problems with Linux & DigiKam - Looking for alternatives or workarounds.

Hi,

We are trying to do something big!

We are a UK Based charity trying to give 20 years of research on Points Of Interest around the UK to the public for free via an app.

We have been using DigiKam under Linux Mint for the past few months to attribute both text tags and geotags to a massive library of Jpegs (Over half a million and counting). However, the setup isn't working as we had hoped.

Eventually we want to have an app designed that will return various photos based on a user search. This would allow the app user to search either by GPS info via an open source map or by text tag such as; Location, Child Friendly? Dog Friendly? Disabled Friendly? Cost. Etc.

In a perfect world we would be able to use one program to apply text tags & geotags and do a bit of resizing and manipulation hence trying Linux & DigiKam, but we've had a few problems with data loss and we're not really in a position to cope with the extra challenges added by trying to get to grips with Linux.

We have been advised recently by Dmitri Popov that MySQL isn't currently stable enough with DigiKam (which certainly matches with our experiences) although this might improve over time. Dmitri knows his stuff and has been really helpful but it's not fair of us to overburden him and I'm also hoping that multiple heads will be better than one. With all this in mind;

Can anyone think of a program (or combination of programs? that will allow us to do the following?

  1. Write our text tags and geotags into a database rather than the metadata of the original files.

  2. Allow multiple users to directly access our photos over a shared network.

  3. Allow multiple users access to a shared database over a shared network.

  4. If number three isn't possible, we are prepared to pay someone to write a program to merge our separate databases. (We would need to be able to run this program at will.)

We will be really grateful for any help that anyone can provide!!

Thanks in advance,

Alexander.

best practice person tag hierarchy

I'm looking for a good way to organize the tags for persons.
Something like persons/coworker/firstname_lastname or 
persons/sport/firstname_lastname works well enough for friends but not for 
family where I already have 6 generations of persons somehow related to each 
other.
A flat hierarchy does not work, because of persons with the same name. Grouping 
into families gets difficult when they start having their own family etc.

How do you organize person tags?

Regards,
Stephan

Issue with Digikam Windows

My wife is using Digikam 4.1 on Windows 8.1 and it seems to be that when 
she selects a photo with a single left click it displays the preview 
image which is not what she wants, she just wants to highlight the image 
in the thumbnail view so she can assign a label. Is there a setting I 
have missed somewhere in Digikam which is causing this? Windows 8 is set 
to double click to open files & folders.

Searching for new entries

Open Digikam takes 10 minutes at least. It's always checking for new 
pictures. While I did know how to uncheck this test in earlier versions I 
dont find it anymore in version 4.8. Who can tell me where to uncheck it?

Thanks!

How update digikam from 4.0 to 4.8 for Mac OS X?


Dear digikam community,

I have spent an evening looking to try to find out how to update digikam from 4.0 to 4.8.  I can not see one
example where this has happened; is it possible?

I use OS X 10.9 Maverick, and uploaded digikam via MacPorts.

Any help gratefully received.

Thank you.

How to get DK to include new directories in collection?

I have a script which gets pictures off my digital camera's SD card, 
rotates them, adds date and time to their filenames (like 
YYYYMMDD_hhmmss_original-filename) and puts them in folders (like 
/home/john/pix/2015/20150311/ ). This is similar to what I could do 
using digikam to import from the card but it handles my camera's video 
files better than digikam does.)

My home directory is mounted via NFS and is a "Collection on Network 
Share" in digikam. Also: /home/john/pix/ is actually a symlink to where 
the filesystem is really mounted.

Sometimes after importing pictures using my script it takes digikam a 
few minutes to notice the new folders and add them to the albums in my 
collection. However since 13th February Digikam has not added any new 
folders to my album collection!

Is there any way to make Digikam "see" the new folders and add them to 
my albums?

I'm on Digikam 3.5.0 on Kubuntu 14.04 (kde 4.13.3).

Is it worth trying Exiftool ( http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/
) as this programme runs in Windows as well as Linux. It may allow you to
see how all the metadata is stored.
