Description Peter Jakobs 2006-09-22 08:03:10 UTC
Version:           0.9.0-beta2 (using KDE KDE 3.4.2)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

metadata info is not written into raw image files even if the format (like Canon raw .cr2) does support both exif and iptc. This is pretty annoying as it basically means that digikam cannot be the first tool in the workflow (which would be download->tag(digikam)->raw convert->postprocess->publish). As the raw converter would keep any exif/iptc information, the tagging would be ok for the whole chain if it was written to the original raw file. Right now, I have to come back to the converted images and tag them again.
