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 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.
