            Bug ID: 380378
           Summary: Option to automatically group photos
           Product: digikam
           Version: 5.4.0
          Platform: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: [hidden email]
          Reporter: [hidden email]
  Target Milestone: ---

First, thanks for digikam, it's a great app I'm just learning to use at the
moment. Grouping is very handy. It'd be nice if one could provide rules for
automatic grouping instead of having to do it manually.

Or perhaps it is better to keep it manual..

Anyway, I'm a bit confused about some grouping matters: When I convert RAW into
JPEG in the image editor, the original RAW image gets hidden. Then, if I delete
the converted JPEG, the RAW image shows up again so it wasn't deleted. Whereas
if I convert RAW to JPEG with batch manager, the RAW image doesn't get hidden,
so I use grouping and then when I delete the JPEG (i.e., the group), both
images get deleted. I prefer the latter, that is, deleting both images.

Just an idea, not sure if it makes sense: Could grouping and versioning be
unified somehow? For instance, instead of hiding the original image, create a
group? That is, use the grouping framework for the image stacks in versioning
too? Or when deleting an image, also delete all the images that it hides
because of versioning? Probably, these wouldn't work like this and I'm most
likely missing something, but I just find the current situation a bit confusing
or maybe I need to understand something. Any thoughts? If this comment is worth
a "bug" report of its own, I can copy it to a new report.

Simon work currently to improve Group feature. All last changes can be found in
last pre-release 5.6.0 Linux AppImage bundle. Please take a look an revise this
entry accordingly. Perhaps some new options coded by Simon are enough to close
this entry. If something is missing, just comment here.

My recent changes to grouping don't really address this problem.

Automatic grouping: Could be a thing. A config option to group automatically by
time or filename. To still also allow manual groups as well, we would either
need subgrouping (that would probably open Pandora's Box) or just combine
automatically and manually grouped items. I would like that, but don't see it
happening (by me) anytime soon.

I pondered the idea of integrating versioning and grouping as well - but gave
up on it due to lack of understanding and interest. I personally use digiKam
almost exclusively as DAM, so the only image manipulation I do is e.g.
scaling&sharpening in BQM for publication. Point I am trying to make: I don't
really know the versioning feature.

What is displayed regarding versioning is set in configuration -> Image Editor
-> Versioning -> In main view -> Always show... So I assume you could select
both checkboxes, then manually use grouping on versions. That could maybe be
unified with grouping by giving another option: Group versions together. As you
noted, I am too probably not aware of problems regarding this approach. And
there is this report about this functionality:
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=338882

And I think versioning is only available through the editor, not through the
batch queue manager. I might be wrong however. This bug report is probably
related:
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=375024

So lets keep this report about automatical grouping and potentially use the
linked reports or new ones for the versioning problems. I feel like versioning
on its own needs some real attention to get it right (again?).

Maik,

BQM use already versioning feature, but not very well. Right ?
