This is already possible in kphotoalbum. When in thumbnail view, select all of the images you want to copy. Then, select File->Export/Copy Images. In the resulting menu, select "Automatically copy next to .kim file" and click OK. Then you'll be able to choose where you want to copy the pictures. You will need to type a name for the .kim file that will be created in the same directory, but this file can be safely ignored. It just contains the tag information for the pictures in case someone else wants to import these photos in their kphotoalbum database. You can see the documentation on this feature here: http://docs.kde.org/development/en/extragear-graphics/kphotoalbum/chp-importExport.html
Comment 2 Tobias Leupold 2011-01-23 12:17:09 UTC
I know, but this is not what I (and others?) need ... It's not necessary to copy the metadata, so this actual export is too much for me. Additionally, this can't be used from the image viewer, but only from the thumbnail view – and this makes it unuseable for what I do, as the thumbnails are often too small to make a decision. A simple "just copy/move and don't do anything else" would be way more handy in my opinion. The possibility to simply press F7/F8 (or whatever you want) to copy/move a file, perhaps also from the context menu of the thumbnail/image view would be really great.

Perhaps, Bug #269687 would be also covered by adding this functionality? Resp. this should be also implemented once my proposal would be.

Git commit 40061f5ca81e2f95dc62e3d5554deb14d1cb2835 by Johannes Zarl. Committed on 21/06/2014 at 19:44. Pushed by johanneszarl into branch 'master'. Implement copying images from the Viewer. Select in the context menu or by pressing F7, as it is possible in GwenView. Thanks to Tobias Leupold, who submitted this patch!
