Today, importing pictures from a camera allows creation of date named folders.
If you have a structure where you have 12 Month folders containing 31 Day folders, Digikam cannot be configured to create this structure.
EG:
2013/March/03/Picture.jpg
2013/April/31/Picture.jpg
This type of structure is available with Shotwell, Rapid Downloader and others. Changing to Digikam is a problem for Shotwell users

Request a: The import command should be enhanced to allow creation of Year, Month and Day sub-folders.
Request b: The folder name definition codes (E.G.: dd /%m%M /YYYY etc.) should have a pop-up helper text in the GUI to explain all the codes.
EG a [?] button right next to the field. A list of codes then apprears. Alternatively define the name by a GUI like Rapid Photo Downloader. And not via cryptic codes.
