[KPhotoAlbum] image search question

Hi Markus,

As Joe already said, the easiest way to do this is to make the "Pool" tag 
independent of "Hotel A" and "Hotel B". And in fact they are independent: not 
all pool photos belong to Hotel A (or B), and not all photos of Hotel A (or B) 
are pool photos.

An example where it would be appropriate to have some sub-category belong to 
more than one super-category would be when the super-categories are in some 
way orthogonal. E.g. if you had another category "Poolbar at Hotel A", it 
would make sense to make it a sub-category of both "Hotel A" and "Pool".

Regarding your queries (and assuming you have "Pool" independent from the two 
Hotel categories):
> > *) search for all photos from hotel A,
Select "Hotel A"

> > *) search for all photos from the pool of hotel A,
Select "Hotel A", then select "pool" (or vice versa).

Hope this helps,
