Here is an example of the data of one photo in the index.xml inside the
.kim file:
 <image width="2304" monthFrom="9" dayFrom="29" hourFrom="11"
height="3456" yearTo="2007" monthTo="9" minuteFrom="22"
file="IMG_0100.JPG" label="IMG_0100" angle="0" dayTo="29"
secondFrom="54" yearFrom="2007" description="" >
   <option name="Folder" >
    <value value="2007/Freudenstadt/09" />
   <option name="Media Type" >
    <value value="Image" />
   <option name="Orte" >
    <value value="Freudenstadt" />
   <option name="Personen" >
    <value value="Elias" />

so, no md5sum.
But instead the original folder:
   <option name="Folder" >
    <value value="2007/Freudenstadt/09" />
what is this intended for ?

Note, that somehow, I've been cheating KPA here right from the beginning.
KPA expects the photos in the same dir as the .kim file itself - so it
can copy them and probably at this step calculate the checksum.
I had the photos on DVD and already copied to the target dir in the
The kim file was on memory stick. (Discovered too late, that I've
forgotten that on the DVD)
So I tried to import this later on.
All the rest was at least partly a result of this approach.

Nevertheless I would consider it a good thing, to make approaches like
this handled correctly by KPA.
