digikam and EXIF
I am new to this list, digikam, and digital photography.
I experience few, perhaps related, problems.
1. The metadata in exif and makernote are lost after transforming a
photo. (Tested on rotating and resizing.)
2. After starting digikam, my terminal gets cluttered with warning
such as this
Warning: Size 5291 of Exif.Nikon3.0x0091 exceeds \
4096 bytes limit. Not decoded.
Q: How can I cause digikam to copy the relevant metadata
into the the transformed photo?
Or should I use external tool (exiftools)?
Q: Should I worry because of the warnings I get?
Even if not - how to avoid them?
I use a Nikon D300.
Photos are recorded as the largets possible tiffs.
