Switch to Previous/Next picture from Right Panel

AndriusWild
Hello,

 I usually browse through my pictures using Left/Right keys and check boxes
using mouse in Tags Tree. But if I want to use Left / Right keys again after
that I have to click back on a picture first. It slows me down a bit.
I have many tags in my library so shortcuts are  too complicated to remember.

Is there a way to adjust that? Or is there a better workflow to assign tags to
your pictures?

Thanks,
AG

Hi,

Assign keyboard shortcuts to your favorite tags and just press to key
for tagging operations.

Hello Gilles,

I use around 30 tags on daily basis and do not think hot keys are an option
for me. I am sure I will end up using 5-10 of them and will forget the rest
which is not my goal.
Is that possible to customize the location of Back/Forward buttons at least?
They are in the top left corner of the picture preview right now. I would
rather have them in the top righ corner (against the right panel).

Andrius,

Have you tried using TAB or SHIFT-TAB to change the active panel. I think you'll find that you can probably click on the tags you want and then return the focus to the preview panel by using 1 or more SHIFT-TABs. (The number of TABs or SHIFT-TABs needed might vary depending on which preview configuration you're using.

No this cannot be customized. At least, buttons can be hidden. That
all for the moment.

Hello Peter,

Thank you for sharing this tutorial.
Your method A is exactly what I do for people tagging (followed by face tagging in my case).
I am not sure I seen the button "tags already assigned" though. Maybe I just have not notice it or maybe it is gone from digiKam 5.
The Method B looks like an amazing keyboard only way of tagging pictures. I will definitely give it a shot when I am back in front of my laptop. Again, thanks a ton for sharing!

Best regards,
AG

Hello Peter,

I have tried the method but it did not quite work on digikam 5.5.0.
I added a comment on the page:

https://www.digikam.org/news/2012-01-21_Efficient_photo_tagging_with_digikam/

which started this discussuion on pixls.us:

https://discuss.pixls.us/t/efficient-photo-tagging-with-digikam/3768/2

Could you take a look please?

Hello bgoodman,

Thank you for the tip.

I got this figured out now.

SPACE / BACKSPACE and/or PAGE UP / PAGE DOWN switch pictures when I am in the Tag Tree.
CTRL+TAB helps me to switch between tabs in the right panel which is handy when I want to add a title / caption.

I did not know about SPACE/BACKSPACE and PAGEUP/PAGEDOWN. That works much better than what I was suggesting.

PAGEUP/PAGEDOWN seems like a reasonable shortcut. I am surprised at the operation of SPACE. On Windows that would normally toggle the checkbox of the item you have selected in the tag window. I just checked and it does change the thumbnail selection as you describe. This seems more like a bug to me because I would prefer to be able to use SPACE and UPARROW/DOWNARROW to select tag items.

Hi AG,

I am here on Debian Jessie with digiKam 4.4.0. So I can't say much about digiKam
5.5.0. Sorry.

Maybe someone else, already using digiKam 5.5.0, can have a look?
