open with external editor disappeared in recent beta

I recompiled digikam recently and now cannot find a menu item to open a 
file in an external editor anymore. It used to be possible to right 
click an image and select something like open with (I do not remember 
the exact name) which opened a list of image editors to choose from, in 
which the image then gets opened. Has this option been intentionally 
removed? Integration with other image editors is key for me. Digikams 
main strenth is image handling, as an editor, there are superior options 
out there.

"digiKam 5.0.0-beta6 installer for Windows"

Hi all,

There is a 32bits installer for digiKam 5.0.0-beta6 here :

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=363505#c2

There are identified problems where we already try to fix it. Considerate this installer as instable and use it only for testing.

In all case this version will work better under Windows than 4.x. As we don't use KIOSlave in digiKam core, the time latency and lock are disappear.

But as most of kipi-plugins continue to use KIOSLave, there don't work currently. We don't find yet the right way to fix this problem. Investigations are under progress..

You can report your feedback to bugs #363505 directly. No need to create new entries in bugzilla or to post on mailing list.

I will update step by step the installer to the same URL in my GDrive account.

Thanks in advance

Gilles Caulier

batch adjust exif date/time

I want to increase the exif date/time information on a bunch of 
pictures. I know this is possible on import, but I only realised later 
(when getting pics from a different camera) that they were off. With the 
edit metadata tool I can only adjust the date/time one by one image. In 
the batch queue I cannot find such a tool. Can someone point me to where 
this is done? I currently just keep using my shellscripts for this, but 
I would like to have all in one place, which is the only reason to use 
digikam for me: It can do lots of stuff. But that also means it is huge 
and thus not the fastest.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Cheers, Simon

Tags not written to XMP sidecar?

Hi!

I have the setting "Write to sidecar files": "Write to XMP sidecar file for read-only image only", which creates xmp sidecar files for the movie files that are in my collection.
Now, I thought that this would mean that the tags applied to those movies was written to the XMP sidecar file. But that seems not to be the case! I now realise that at least neither exiv2 nor exiftool finds those tags. Also, when I access the file from "another" digikam on another computer, no metadata seems to be found.

If this is true, it means that all metadata for those files have been lost when I have moved the files outside Digikam (to another server), which truly is a sad awakening.

Is this the intended behaviour, or is it a bug? Or am I doing something wrong (a user-fault...)?

I'm using digikam 4.14.10 on Ubuntu 15.10.

Best regards
Anders

How can I archieve albums

Hi,

I thought digikam had some functionality to archieve albums, or move them to a 
different collection. How can I do that (I need to move a lot of albums, and 
it is only possible to select one at a time).

Kindly,
Anders

rectification: not restoration but in painting

Hi,

I appologize, with my last mail I referred to the wrong feature: It's
'in painting' which doesn't work. In consequence my text must be:

Hi,

I am using digikam 4.6.0-17.1 on opensuse 13.2 installed from the
repositories of opensuse:

I have a problem with the in-painting-feature in the image-editor - it
doesn't work. Once I have opened an image in the image-editor and marked
a part of the image and clicked on 'try' (even without having changed
the default options) the program freezes at In-painting 0% and only
after killing the process I can continue.
The strange thing is that on my laptop I have the same installation -
opensuse 13.2 and digikam 4.6.0-17.1 - from the same repositories but
there the in-painting feature works.

Any idea where I can start in order to find the reason (and to repair this).

Thanks in advance,
Michael

Import XMP doesn't work

Hi,

Import XMP doesn't work on Digikam 14.4. It seems to go through the
motions, but doesn't actually write the imported data to the target files.

I'm working on raw files.

Perhaps I don't know how to use it, or is this a known bug? Is there a
solution?

Downgrade from 4.14 to 4.12 seems to not recognize database from 4.14 ??

Hi all,

i did an upgrade from Ubuntu 14.4 to 16.4. Previously i did use digikam
4.14, the newer Linux however only has Digikam 4.12 in its repositories.
This older version seems to not recognize the database from 4.14, it
starts with an empty album list. Path to database is still valid. Did the
format change so that using older digikam versions does not work? Should i
simply import everything anew?

Is Digikam 4.14 or the new 5.x available for Ubuntu 16.04?

Thanks

AcquireImages - Scan area size?

Hi Gilles and others,

I am a new member of this list (using Digikam already several years), 
and would like to start to say; Thanks you !!
Since a few weeks I am using a different scanner (HP Scanjet 8250), and 
am having problems with the AcquireImages plugin - the scanned area is 
roughly only A5 size.
Where can I change this setting? With my old scanner, I could scan the 
full A4 area.
A4 scanning in XSane or gscan2pdf works fine.

Thanks,
Arnaud

My environment:
Ubuntu 15.10
Gnome
Digikam 4.14.0
Photo collection on Synology NFS mounted drive
(turned  <at> eadir folder and thumbnail creation off)
Database: MySQL (MariaDB on Synology)

database problem with folders on external disk

Hi,

I have digikam installed on a laptop. The main album is on 
/home/daniel/digikam. I use SQlite datebase.

Now I have two external harddisks of each nearly 2TB with copys of my 
digikam albums from the main computer. I have those external disks with 
me on longer travels because from time to time I need access to some of 
those images.

Now I plugged the first one and added it in settings as external album, 
but as I see, digikam now adds all this information to the main database 
on disk. This, of course, is useless, as those external drives usually 
are not connected. When I disconnect, the database will have entries of 
non-existing images and get inconsistent, I guess. Even worse, when I 
change something on the external disk from another computer...

???

Is there a way to have the database for the local files on the local 
disk and the one for external files on the external disks? So that I can 
have them in digikam when I need them and not have them when I don't 
need them?

Daniel
