Image Catalog and Search

Postby malch on Thu Nov 12, 2009 1:53 am

I'm looking for a program to database the EXIF/IPTC fields of my image collection and provide fast easy searching -- one that will work nicely with FPV.

I am aware of decent programs for tagging images (like PhotoMechanic). And programs that do it all (like Lightroom, ACDSee, et al). But I just want the capability to build/search a database using a program that will operate smoothly with FPV and my image editing tools (Capture NX and CS4).

I'm interested to know what other FPV fans are using.

You can say that again. The closest thing I found was:

http://www.picajet.com/en/index.php

but it's not sufficient to replace my crude home grown solution.

Odd that there are so many programs for extracting/indexing the tags from MP3's and so few for doing the same thing with images.
