GeoLocation Question

I have just taken a series of pictures in different locations with my 
Canon.  For each location I also took one with my phone so that I would 
have the coordinates.  I have imported all pictures into DigiKam, what 
is the easiest/best way to copy the location data from the phone pics to 
the Canon pics?

Thanks
Mick

Geotagging - time zones with half hour increments ?

Hello,

I tried to geotag a number of photos taken in Iran using the
Geo-location feature of digikam. My gps-device records the tracks with
UTC time stamps. The local time in Iran (summer time) recorded as
creation time in my photos is 4 and a half hours ahead of GMT (= UTC).
Digikam provides time offsets only by full hours (except for + 3:30),
but not for a time offset of 4:30 h. I tried a time offset of 4:00 h +
with a fine offset of 30 minutes. But this does not seem to work
properly in Digikam. Is there a way to add 4:30 to the preset list of
camera time zones ? Or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks,

Robert Zeller

Issue with rotating images vs thumbnails

I am running 4.14 on openSUSE Tumbleweed and have a big problem with 
trying to rotate images as my camera does not set the relevant bit in exif.

When I select a thumbnail and click on the rotate icon it will rotate 
the main image but not the thumbnail. If I go to preview image the main 
image is rotated however the small image in the top strip is the same as 
the main image but the thumbnail is not rotated.

That all sounds a bit messed up but basically there seems to be a 
problem getting the thumbnail and main image in sync.

Anyone any ideas please as it is very frustrating.

Stuart

Odd behavior after edit of one photo.

I am running digikam 4.14.21 on openSuse Leap 42.1 KDE
Overall, digikam seems running fine (has been for a long time, a super piece of work)

Except, recently, for thiss --Here is a scenario:

I import 3 new photos from my hard drive.
They import correctly (I have them renamed as part of the import process) and display in the album of my choice.
All three appear in Thumbnail view
I edit (crop, enhance) one of the photos and save-as-new-version.
The three original files all have unique names, after edit I see four files listed and viewable via Dolphin (file manager).

But within digikam, If I have Settings-Configure digikam-Always show original images un-checked, the originals of all three photos disappear when I View-Thumbnails.

If I check the "Always show original images" option, I see all three originals plus the modified photo.

Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong, or perhaps SQlite issue?
Photos and database (SQlite) are on a local Hard Drive

It is acting as if all three photos, or perhaps just all three thumbnails, are linked together in the "originals - derivatives' logic.

Digikam eats (some of) my photos when I tag them

Hi,

I have an unusual issue.  I have digikam installed on a linux installation and a large collection of photos on an NTFS windows partition.  There are a few directories in the collection, one relates to photos from my phone, one from my camera, etc.  These are then displayed chronologically without reference to the folder structure by digikam.

When I tag photos from my camera only, then  close digikam, they are deleted.  Only tagged photos, and only in the directory relating to my camera - but all of those photos.  The thumbs db still has a thumbnail of them, the tag database still knows they are tagged but the original file is gone.  Digikam can't open them and neither windows or linux can see the files anymore.

Anyone seen anything like this before?

Cheers

Programmatic Access to DigiKam's Features

Hi,

Is there a way to use Digikam's search functionality and start a slideshow programmaticaly? I guess I can always manually query Digikam's database, but how can I start a slideshow, say from a script?

I would like to create a small script that once in a while brings up slideshows of pictures takes today X years ago (similar to what Google Photo does). Idealy such script would run from a crontab and wouldn't require actually openning the Digikam GUI each time it looks for photos.

Thanks,
Guy

Crash of Digikam5 at start

Hi,

 

after having a quite nicely working digikam5 beta 6 on kubuntu 16.04 with philip5 extra it crashes now always when i start it. From terminal the last lines look like that:

from the crash I created a bug in KDE: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=364193

I guess it might have to do with the larger libre office update that came from the dayly updates:

one line as example:

libreoffice-kde (1.1.2-0ubuntu1, 1.1.3-0ubuntu1) Upgraded at sunday june 5 13:40:20 2016

 

Digikam 4.14 is still working

 

Has anyone an idea what i could do?

 

Thanks

Digikam doesn't works with shared folder

Hello community,

I'm trying to implement this magnific software in my working environment. I'm talking with the office companions about the positive capabilities of this program. 
It was installed in my pc and I could work well on my local drive. 

The problem begins when I was agree a shared folder to access at all pictures. Is in that moment when the program crashes all the times I'm trying to work with.

I was tried to uninstall the program and all the related files but all the times I re-install the program charge the same shared folder with a lot of pictures and crashes again. 

What can I do to make a clear uninstall procedure?

What can I do to work whith this shared folder without problems?

Fèlix

P.D.: Sorry for my bad english

Re: Digikam-users Digest, Vol 133, Issue 6

Dropbox! Dropbox's default behavior is to store a copy of every file on every computer you back it up to. Plus there's the copy stored on their cloud. PLUS, if you pay for the extra, they do unlimited file versioning. It works incredibly well.

Subject: Re: [Digikam-users] PicasaWeb tool...
I was wrong.
Picasaweb will continue to exist in parallel with GPhoto.
However no new updates will occur.

See:
http://googlephotos.blogspot.com/2016/02/moving-on-from-picasa.html

I've verified this by viewing my Picasaweb album and seeing that my Nexus phone
is still auto uploading images to Picasaweb.

People can use both, but as you asked in your original post we will be in
continual transition stage.

You may try the newest version 4.14 which is available for Ubuntu 16.04
thanks to Philip Johnson.
See here:
https://launchpad.net/~philip5/+archive/ubuntu/extra?field.series_filter=xenial

This also includes several libraries and works (almost) fine for me.


Hope this helps.

<at> Gilles: any chance to get another bug fix release of the 4.x series?

I'm running Digikam on xubuntu 16.04 without problems, I'm pretty sure
xubuntu uses the same repositories as ubuntu.

When I run 'digikam --version' I see:-

    chris$ digikam --version
    Qt: 4.8.7
    KDE Development Platform: 4.14.16
    digiKam: 4.12.0

I use grsync.  There is an option to remove files that no longer exist
on the source.  This gets around the problem when you rename or move a file.

Hey Luca,

I haven't looked for a while but checked just before responding -- I have 19668 files occupying 284.8 GB.

I regularly backup without any problems.

First, think of you database as images+metadata (in file or as an associated XMP) and a separate database that consolidates this data into a useful form.

Second, remember the database can be readily recreated from the images+metadata. Throughout the time I have been using digikam I have rebuild my database probably 10 times.

So, assuming all your images+metadata are in one directory you can use any operating-system-based backup solution.

Personally I use Ubuntu 14.04 LTS as my operating system and rsync as my backup solution.

My rsync commands are all stored in a bash script, which also starts/stops/extracts data from other computers that the family use (Windows 7 and various linux flavours).

I mirror all my copies so after I am finished a backup I have 3 independent and physically separate copies.

I hope this feedback helps.

Grsync too :)
I also use external HD with different sizes for backup. Since I have around 800 Gb of data, I only back up the jpg in the smaller ones (e.g. 500 Gb), while the bigger ones (1Tb) also get the RAW files.
Grsync is very comfortable for this, since you can save as many configurations as you like, so I have one for each external hard drive. And I doubt there is something more efficient than rsync out there anyway.

Regards,

Nicolas
