We have an Asynch patch in the pipeline which would speed up everything
quite drastically (from the users perspective).
For now, if you tag a lot of photos, and have Write Metainformation to
the Photos enabled, each photo has to be updated on the disk. This takes
some time unfortunately, and there is no feedback at all to the user.


I didn't see that in Bugzilla. I probably should go read all the bugs
at least once to know where everything stands.

Thanks. I'm not sure if I'll build that into my everyday F-spot, but
I'll test it on the testUser.
