Helge, Sorry to hear that digikam isn't working too well for you. First thing I would recommend is to backup your existing albums as is to DVD or some other high density storage. > At first things looked normal, old tagged images still have their tags.

There is a re-read meta data from images option, which can be used to get your database back into sync, available under the Albums menu. I would also recommend you check your Collections Settings, under the configure digikam menu. I would also recommend you check with upstream support as they maywell have some better advice: http://www.digikam.org/drupal/support Mark
