Version: 0.10.0-rc2 (using 4.2.61 (KDE 4.2.61 (KDE 4.3 >= 20090127)), Gentoo)
OS: Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.26-tuxonice
in order to tag alot of files, there is a feature missing which i found ultraconvenient implemented in kphotoalbum.
basically it allows you to press a key during a slideshow/viewing images fullscreen to set or unset a tag like "A" "B" "C" and so on.
later you can easily map the "A" to "Person/Alice" or whatever.
a short demo can be found at http://ktown.kde.org/kphotoalbum/videos/tour4.html
this was a real killerfeature as it allows you to tag images during viewing and i really miss this in digikam - what do you all think?
Wasn't there a plan about color labels for images? Maybe this could be a way to achieve this, too.
This entry is not about color labels.
It's about to add shorcuts to Tags. there is already another entry in bugzilla. This one is a duplicate.
About color Label, look my comment :
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 114465 ***
I thought about a alternative workflow that would keep Tags as a somewhat "stable" annotation, whereas color labels are more for working purposes. You could use color labels for "pre-tagging" and afterwarts provide a converter from color labels to tags. This would ensure that your tag-collection doesn't grow up with left-over entries in the form "A", "B", "C"... from this working stage.
