kphotoalbum(1) KDE tool for indexing, searching and viewing images by keywords.


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 --help-all.

Show all options, including generic KDE and Qt options.
-c file
Load alternate config file.
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.
