Description Axel Krebs 2011-05-28 16:19:17 UTC
Version:           2.0.0 (using KDE 4.6.2) 
OS:                Linux

I always stored my pic both as raw _and_ jpg-type pictures.

When I attempt fuzzy search > sketch search, I only get _one_ pic- while the same pic always existes in onother file format too. 

"Is this a bug or a feature"?? (after a MS citation)

Can I provide further information? 


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
just do fuzzy search > sketch search

Expected Results:  
The search results should absolutely be _independent_ on the very file format. If, then hits should appear pairwise.

OS: Linux (i686) release 2.6.35-28-generic-pae

I'm surprized about the result. Too same image in RAW  + JPEG do not give the same result... There is no filter here. RAW and JPEG must be show in icon view.

I just tested yesterday with current master branch and variants of the same image. File types involved were: jpg, png, tiff, tif, bmp. All are found both in duplicates and in sketch mode. Also tested with an image which I found in cr2 format and transformed to jpg and png. Did not have any problems to find all images in sketch search.
Thus, i cannot confirm the problem in the current master branch. In fact, it works as expected.

This is what i suspected too. So i close this file as fixed.
