Description Anders Bo Rasmussen 2006-04-19 20:52:37 UTC
Sometimes I would like two different crops of the same picture to appear
in the database as two pictures with different tags. E.g. it is possible
to get two different pictures by cropping two different persons from the same
picture. So it would be great if both versions of the original picture
could appear as a real picture.
Comment 1 Bengt Thuree 2006-05-15 15:04:36 UTC
Perhaps a "Add current version as a new photo" function?

I am modifying the title to reflect this.
(original title was : Multiple version of the same picture)
Comment 2 Anders Bo Rasmussen 2006-05-15 18:45:19 UTC
Good! This is just the functionality needed, but described in a more clear way.

One thing have to be decided: Is the "current version" of the old photo still being kept as a version or is it deleted (moved) when the new picture is created.

I like the idea, and the patch works for me.

I would suggest adding the reverse feature too: the ability to merge ("reparent") one image as a version of another.
