Please, do read the Storage management page first!

To manage and store each eventโ€™s pictures, we use digiKam, a powerful and cool open source software specifically crafted for this purpose.

  1. Ensure picturesโ€™ metadata correctness (see warning above)
  2. Rename pictures according to their date, stored into the EXIF metadata, using the following format: [date:yyyy.MM.dd-HH.mm.ss]{unique}
  3. Ensure all files are in JPG format
  4. Assign author and copyright in picturesโ€™ metadata
    1. apply general basic copyright settings
    2. apply author-specific copyright settings
    3. Create a tag for each author and assign it to their pictures, in order to make filtering and sorting easier
  5. Sort images in albums according to their topic/sub-event
  6. Select and edit photos
  7. Batch rename according to the following format: [date:yyyy.MM.dd-HH.mm.ss]{unique} [dir], Scambi Festival. Such format means picturesโ€™ name contain the name of their belonging album, hence the name of the activity they are related to.
  8. Check geotagging inside picturesโ€™ metadata
  9. Create/set/assign location tags
  10. People recognition
    1. Peopleโ€™s face detection
    2. Peopleโ€™s face recognition
  11. In order to upload the pictures in batch to the Internet Archive, all media and their metadata should be parsed in a CSV file. To do this, letโ€™s use digiKamโ€™s โ€œBatch Queue Managerโ€ and use the โ€œcustom shell scriptโ€ tool, with this input: echo "\"$INPUT\",$COLORLABEL,$TAGSPATH" >> ~/Desktop/ia-scambi.csv
