Description Mikolaj Machowski 2007-04-14 20:18:21 UTC
Version:            (using KDE Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources
OS:                Linux

When changing filenames in CameraGUI user can select:
- default
- Full text
- Local settings
- Advanced

When auto-creating albums there are only:
- Full text
- Local settings

I think also possibility to create customized (Advanced option) names of auto-created albums would be good idea. At least for consistency.

Especially (for me) the ability to have albums created by the time/date the photo was taken.

Something similar can be done here as new file renaming tool, that you have implemented ?

Comment 3 Andi Clemens 2009-05-13 09:59:18 UTC
We should be able to just use the ManualRenameWidget here, too. Well in theory :D
Need to check that.

Recently I've switched to digiKam, but it miss very small thing when downloading photos, related to album folders. Now I can choose Date-ISO but it does create just one top folder in the albums structure. It will be very nice if you can allow more options here and create subfolders like: <AlbumsRoot>/2011/08/05/<downloaded_files>
Other apps I've used before do so and is nice if you can keep compatible with such option.

Do you checked ManualRenameWidget usability for this entry ?
