Uploading tags with pictures

Is there any way to upload tags (eg. EXIF) with my pictures?

At the moment, I seem to have to enter them all manually in pLoader, although they already exist. It would be good to be able to capture the existing tags for the upload.

This could be implemented either in pLoader or in the digiKam export tool.

Hi joeyboy,

Tell me if I'm wrong but you have an account on Piwigo.com. I've configured it in order to fill the tag list and description from your IPTC fields (filled with Digikam).

Tell me if it works the way you expect.

Thanks for your help, plg, that's looking good now!
Could have I done this myself?
If so, how? And where is it documented?

On Piwigo.com, no couldn't have done it by yourself. See point 2 of [Forum, post 123060 by plg in topic 17718] Mounted directory synchronization

OK, but maybe this feature should be under the direct control of the user in the upload dialog ...
Thanks anyway.

IPTC configuration is a bit tricky I'm afraid (displaying it on the upload form is not a good idea in my opinion since less that 1% of users know about things like IPTC)

Yes, but maybe it could be put it in a sub-dialog called "Advanced" on the upload dialog.
