4 comments on “Searching and Filtering Photos in digiKam — Part 2

  1. Hi there,
    Yesterday I had the misfortune of having my mother-in-law ask me to help her with a digital picture frame.

    She uses Mac OS 10 (Tiger).

    This has iPhoto installed. Do you think I could easily find a way of reducing the resolution of a collection of images so they could be loaded onto a USB drive? No.

    This is the second time I’ve had to use iPhoto and cannot find anything in it that is useful – other than the ability (apparently) to make a video clip of images.

    In terms of tools, function and ease of use, Digikam is in another galaxy, far, far, away from iPhoto and yet I occasionally hear people talk about it as a replacement for iPhoto. It’s like saying a Rolls Royce is a replacement for a Mini Minor.

    Well done Digikam.

    (the digital picture fame thing wouldn’t mount within the Mac architecture – said so IN the box, but not on the outside)

  3. Two questions, anybody:

    1° Is there a way to combine timeline AND map?
    2° Is there a way to show non-geotagged pics? I’d like to browse through what I have not yet tagged.

  4. I was able to select photos without GPS locations in two steps.
    1) MySQL query directly on database to tag gps photos.
    2) In Digikam, search for not having the hasGPS tag.

    Step 1)
    a)In Digikam, create a tag named hasGPS.
    b)In Digikam, go to ‘Configure’ and look in ‘Collections’ to see the “Database File Path”.

    c)Close DigiKam.

    d) locate and make a backup copy of your digikam database.

    e) Now, in SQLite Database Browser ( or anything that lets you run an sql query ) load the database and run the following query:

    REPLACE INTO ImageTags (imageid,tagid)
    SELECT imageid, (SELECT id from Tags WHERE name=’hasGPS’)
    FROM ImagePositions WHERE imageid>0

    Now go back to digiKam.

    Step 2)
    In DigiKam, go to Advanced Search.
    a) click on the little ‘options’ lettering and choose ‘None of these conditions are met’
    b) under ‘File, Album, Tags’ select your ‘hasGPS’ tag.
    c) click ‘OK’ !
