      The ability to create hierarchical tags is very useful if there are a large number of photos and I am trying to zero in on one photo or subject. For example many of my photos have hierarchical tags of the sort:
      Wildlife | Birds | Eagles. If I flatten the hierarchy, I end up with a huge number of tags. ie: one tag for each animal, bird, plant etc. I prefer to be able to progressively zoom in on the subject of interest. so for example:
      Highest level : People , Buildings, Gardens, Wildlife etc.
      Second level : Birds, Fish, Insects, Mammals
      Third level : Eagles, songbirds, waterfowl,
      Is there any way to to enable hierarchical searches and tagging in F-Stop? Ideally, this would also work for Places, as in Italy | Rome | Piazza del popolo.

      I started doing this in XnView (and Shotwell) but it’s hard to commit the time to sit down at the desk in front of the computer when I’ve always got the tablet/phone around me.

      I would love it if F-Stop could support nested tags, so I could keep the same structure I’m already trying to use.

      I’m not sure if there’s a standard for separating levels in the hierarchy though. I think the digikam folks did an analysis of different implementations.

      I also think there’s another post in the forum with the same request, but I can’t find it right now.

      Just wanted to let you know that this is a planned feature. Actually, we have wanted to do this for a very long time but it keeps getting bumped for higher priority features. My suggestion would be to send this request to our support email.
