In the words of the ticket #4081: 'When Shotwell imports from the
F-Spot database, it will create two copies of each hierarchical tag:
one inside the tag hierarchy and one at top level.'
Well, it still do in version 0.11.1.
I know that English is not my first language, but what I am trying to
say is just that what is happening is what is described in the ticket.
As in 'not-fixed'.
That's what I did:
A very simple f-spot database (three photos, see screenshot)
exiftool -all:all * > BeforeImport.txt
Import in shotwell (see screenshot): shotwell added the children tags
both in the correct hierarchy and as top-level tags.
exiftool -all:all * > AfterImport.txt
I've put the three photos (after the shotwell import) in the same
directory with a csv version of the output of exiftool as well:
