Baking batches of photos
One of the standout features of digiKam is the Batch Editor. As its name suggests, it enables you to perform the same edits to multiple pictures as a group. While many other batch process tools exist for renaming or resizing photos, digiKam’s editor makes it possible to perform any edits that you can apply to a single photo to a group of images.
Either select a group of pics in the browser and open up the Batch Editor window, or dragand-drop files into the left hand pane of the editor. Now you can build up a process by dragging tools from the Control Panel in the bottom right to the Assigned Tools space in the middle. In the top right pane, add tool settings such as the new size, metadata, effects applied or name. It’s especially useful if you want to apply copyright (or copyleft) details to every pic.
