When importing images from my hard drive into digiKam, via the Import >> Add Images command, there is an option for Auto-creating albumbs based on date. The albums created seem to be based on the import date, rather than the date the image was taken.
How can I use this auto-creation feature to create albums based on the EXIF date?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy some images to a hard drive folder
2. Click Import >> Add Images (Ctrl-I)
3. Under "Auto-creation of Albums", select "Date-based sub-albums"
One sub album is created based on the date of import (i.e. 'today').
Sub-albums would be created based on the image creation date (from EXIF). This is how the import from camera feature works.
Having the ability to automatically create EXIF based sub albums would offer more efficiency than a single import date based sub-album. E.g. I can easily create a single folder and import all images into that folder. It is more time consuming to import, manually create sub-albums, and then sort the images into the sub-albums.
I am running digiKam 4.11.5, which isn't available in the "Version" select box.
digiKam 4.11.5 do not exist. You talk about KDE version. Look in Help/About dialog for details.
Note : i use this option with digiKam 4.0.0 and all work fine here...
OK, how can I install digiKam 4.0.0 on Ubuntu?
I am installing via the ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports
This file still valid using last digiKam 4.2.0 ?
I still have the problem on version 4.0.0. This may be related to Ubuntu packaging. I cannot figure out how to install 4.2.0 on Ubuntu.
We may need to support people on Debian and Ubuntu who do not have the most up-to-date version of digiKam.
Look this thread to see if this can help you :
This problem still reproducible using last DK 5.4.0 bundle ?
The MediaWiki export is available inthe 5.3.x appimage. There is some issue with the Ubuntu packaging process since at least 2014, where the MediaWiki export plugin is not being installed. I have tried manually installing libmediawiki to no avail.
There is no relation between MediaWiki and this entry...
