Description Adam Porter 2011-11-25 06:47:48 UTC
Version:           2.3.0 (using KDE 4.7.2) 
OS:                Linux

When I download new desktop wallpaper, I put it in Digikam.  Often the new wallpaper has IPTC keyword tags already, and these end up in my Digikam tag hierarchy.  This is quite annoying, since it pollutes my tag hierarchy with a bunch of tags I didn't make and don't want.

It would be nice if Digikam could ignore tags that don't already exist in the tag tree when reading tags from images.

I believe this to be mostly the same as 

and I suggested a fundamental solution to many of these import related problems in #338048 but it seems to be to big to be focused very soon.
