N.A.N.Y. 2018 / Re: NANY 2018 Release: TagMage - An Image Categorizer
« on: January 01, 2018, 10:09 PM »
I've released the alpha version of TagMage, and attached it to this post. We'll call it version 0.5 for now.

And as of 2018-01-02, I've released v0.51 of TagMage, which resolves odd behavior with the Right Arrow hotkey and resets categories when transitioning from categorized images to new (uncategorized) images.

As of 2018-01-18, I've released v0.80 of TagMage, which adds the ability to filter images based on their categories and only show certain images that match the filtering criteria. For instance, if you want to only show recipes, you can go to File > Modify Filters and then select the recipes filter. By default, TagMage opens up showing uncategorized images only, since the goal is to get all of your images categorized. This version also added a 'Help' menu so that you can revisit the Quick Start Instructions, if you need a refresher on how to use the program.

A simple method of categorizing lots of images quickly

Initial Help Screen:
Categorization of images:

TagMage operates on the basic concept that you can take photos of everything that you want to keep track of in your life. By taking photos of everything in your life (mail/bills, recipes, phone screenshots, and pictures), and then using TagMage to categorize each individual image, you can quickly sort all of these photos into categories for easier management.

Current Scope
TagMage started out as a quick little idea, and as I started exploring the concept it grew, I'm thinking that I will use this program to categorize all of my images, and practically just take pictures of everything that I may ever want to keep track of or use in the future. At this point this software is in alpha release and I figure I'll use TagMage as a proof-of-concept, and future version (or a separate future application) will allow me to explore this concept further.

Quick tagging of images with as few keystrokes as possible

Unzip the zip file.

Using the Application
Open the exe file to launch the application
On the initial run of the application, a few configuration prompts will help you determine which folders will be used for the photos and for the categorization information. Also, a help dialog box will show you how to use the application on the initial run.

In order to use TagMage, observe the image on the screen and then place it into the appropriate categories by hitting "P" for Photos, "B" for Bills, "S" for Screenshots or "R" for Recipes. Note that you can see the hotkey to use by observing the underlined character in the checkbox description. Note that you can categorize a single photo into multiple categories. After tagging all of the appropriate categories hit the Right Arrow key to move on to the next image in the folder.

Delete the unzipped folder.

Known Issues
  • There are a few instances where the application does not handle errors correctly, primarily dealing with config files or image files that do not exist. I'll plan on addressing these before the application is released as v1.0

Future Improvements
  • More categories (user customizable)
  • Nested Categories
  • Grouping of images (preferably you wouldn't have to give it a text title, you would see one of the images as the "title")
  • "Multiple Catalogs" - suggestion from tomos
  • Section for ongoing discussion about an image (or group of images)

I'm looking forward to trying this one out. I personally use the todo.txt format for my task lists at work, but of course it doesn't quite do everything that I would hope it could do.

I'm glad I finally made a submission, I've been meaning to for years. Hoping that this way I can start the new year off right!

I've made my own set of scripts for handling my Pomodoro sessions throughout the day. I was considering posting them for this NANY, but they were a little too far from being distributable. I just saw this post today, but if you're really interested I might try to rush something out within the next couple of days. I took some inspiration from CherryTomato (beta/abandonware). Let me know if you're interested in seeing what I have for your Pom sessions.
