photos in Digikam.

I have thousands pictures about birds, etc and its not useful to make a TAG for eatch bird.
I puted some Bird-names into Exif Tag, but Digikam don't show the comment when the picture was into the DB befor adding the Comment.
On the IPTC Comments, its working.
What I need now, is a searchfunction for this IPTC Comments
Comment 4 Sapaka GADEW 2007-01-09 17:57:18 UTC
I totally second sapo on that point!

I use Digikam 0.9 on kubuntu.
I migrated from Adobe Photoshop Elements on windows and I gave all my 
pictures (about 8000) IPTC keywords corresponding to Photoshop Elements 
tags. That worked.

Now I have imported all my pictures in Digikam, i would like to make a search (or an advanced search) on the IPTC keywords to ba bale to tag them coreectly.

Thanks for all the good work!
