So previously I introduced the idea of my image-tagging system. There seemed to be at least a little interest. So here's a brief introduction and real update.
There is a command line tool, itag, which will index the UserComment field from a hierarchy of JPG files. (This field is compatible with digikam, by happy accident).
Additionally there are a pair of GUI tools, both very nasty in terms of code quality and extensibility:
This presents a list of all the tags which are found, (by invoking "itag --tags"), and allows you to view thumbnails of all images with a single specific tag. Double-click to launch the image full-sized.
This is a GUI tool which will present thumbnails of all images beneath a given directory, recursively, and allow you to enter tags either on individual images, or on multiple ones.
This doesn't update the DBM cache file that itag uses though, so you'll want to re-run that aftward.
Patches welcome, especially to the nasty Gtk2 code...
