A KIPI plugin for digiKam was made for easy upload of larger numbers of images to Wikimedia Commons and other MediaWiki installations.

A first version was released with digiKam is 2.6.0. You are strongly discouraged to used this version.

A new, greatly improved version has been released with digiKam 2.8.0, which can be used without big problems.

To use it on GNU/Linux, just install both the digikam and kipi-plugins packages from your software management tool.

After you have installed digiKam then you'll just have to select images from your album and click "export" to start uploading to Commons.


  • Allow uploads to various wikis.
  • Resizing files at upload
  • Pre-filling of metadata from digiKam metadata (file name for title, EXIF date and time for date, title for text description, tags for categories, geolocation for latitude and longitude)
