       kphotoalbum  —  KDE  tool for indexing, searching and viewing images by


       kphotoalbum [--demo]  [-c file]  [--import file]


       This manual page documents briefly the kphotoalbum command.

       KDE Image Database (kphotoalbum) lets you index, search, group and view
       images  by  keywords,  date, locations and persons. It provides a quick
       and elegant way to lookup groups of images when you have  thousands  of
       pictures on your hard disk.

       The  information  associated  with each photo is stored in an XML file.
       Together with its keywords, kphotoalbum stores each picture’s MD5  sum,
       so it will recognize them even if you move them to another directory.


       This  program  follows  the  usual  GNU  command line syntax, with long
       options starting with two dashes  (‘-’).  Below  are  the  kphotoalbum-
       specific  options.   For  a  full  summary  of options, run kphotoalbum

                 Show all options, including generic KDE and Qt options.

       -c file   Load alternate config file.

       --demo    Starts KPhotoAlbum with a prebuilt set of demo images.

       --import file
                 Import database file. KPhotoAlbum allows you to export a  set
                 of  your  images  into  a  .kim  file, which other people may
                 import into their database, to get  your  classification  for
                 these  images.  This  option allows you to import an external
                 .kim file into kPhotoAlbum.
