In my ongoing crusade to discover why my Tags thumbnail database is self-destructing, I read somewhere that digiKam features can be removed or turned off, but there was no information as to how to go about this.
I will never use probably 99% of digiKam’s capabilities; I use it strictly as a photo organizer.
digiKam never sees anything except for my finished jpeg files, which are stored in separate dedicated folders sorted by date; no other files reside in these folders.
When I get a folder of finished jpegs, I make them an “Album/Collection” in digiKam.
I then use the geolocation feature to pinpoint locate each image and write this information into the image file.
I also add Keyword Tags from my meticulously created tag tree.
I often use my (now failing) Tags View to locate tagged images.
Those are the only features I use in digiKam; Keyword Tagging and Geolocating, and search by keyword tag: I do not foresee me ever using any other feature.
I feel that if my digiKam were stripped down and stream-lined, then there would be a lot less room for error.
Is this stream-lining possible and if so how ?
Thanks for reading and all help is appreciated.
