How should nested tags be written to JPEG files?
I'm importing a library from Windows Live Photo Gallery, which I have used to apply nested tags. These tags are stored in the images as, for example,
Subjects/Animals/Sheep. When imported into Shotwell, these tags are listed in the sidebar as
Subjects-Animals-Sheep. When I go to modify the tags in Shotwell, they are listed as
Subjects-Animals-Sheep. If I then save the tags back to the file, viewing the image properties from my file manager lists the tags as
It seems that when the tags are saved back to the file, they lose their hierarchy data.
Is this the case? If I remove the redundant tag
Subjects-Animals-Sheep how would Shotwell import the remaining tags into a fresh database? I assume I'd be left with only a flat list of tags, all at the root level.
I'm using Shotwell 0.28.2.
