Please see my comment on why comment/author/copyright information should
be embedded as early as possible in those RAW file using exif and not
rely on external sidecar files or external databases.

Both programs write exif tags and comments. The problem appears when
each photo has 3 files:


Ie, the camera generates both XXXX.nef and XXXX.jpg. When shotwell
imports them, it generates another jpg file. I think the comments are
saved to the jpg file, but I'm not sure. It can not write to the .nef file.

Digikam does not see the comments or tags of these photos. I don't know
yet why. It does see them if made on cameras that generate a single jpg

Neither does digikam notice that those 3 files are a single photo.
