Good morning, Bastian

Friday, 25 June 2010

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:

itagview

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.

itagger

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.

Anyway enough pimping, if you like the sound of it visit the itag page. If you're optimistic, abhor reading, and just wanna play then there is an itag package for Lenny.

Patches welcome, especially to the nasty Gtk2 code...

I found gnuift in the repo yesterday. I can only wonder if it tags anything like what you are used to, but since I only organize my fotos' by date, I really need to find something that will point me to foto enlightenment.... I already have 10GB or so this year alone
