...review.toptenreviews.com/ (is this legit? or promo?)
still can't find one with face recognition for photos...
does anyone know when this will be available? or of any software that supports it...?
I want something that will be easy for the whole family to use, and on their laptops! That means it has to have a portable database scheme...
I'm thinking the best after all this is a website (hosted at home), that can act like flickr, for each family member! Anyone know of a good solution for that?
Sigh, I am so worried of approaching my photo collection to try and tag and organize it, coz I've already been burnt once, where I lost all the tagged info (from iMatch, then Adobe Elements)...
It's frustrating, we haven't managed to find a good multi-user family friendly image management software yet.
Let's see from the top of my head I remember that for image management these are free & non free contenders
adobe photoshop elements
Some mentions of Vista Photo gallery, and the home server variants for photos..
I need help!
Currently system is "Dated folders + event name\camera file name"
maybe i'm thinking all wrong...
The primary reason i need tags is to find people in my photos!
especially family members...
that too to make presentations on special occasions.
i feel so bummed out whenever i think of this monumental task, it's been on my todo for 4 years now! and still nothing has evolved to make it trivial to do this.
this seems like a incoherent rambling train going towards the edge of a cliff
ok ok... summarizing for myself
features like websites (flickr,facebook ...etc.)http://en.wikipedia....nagement_application
- i.e. individually managed collections
- private areas
- backup of photos
- search for individuals photos (if tagged)
features like apps
- portable data(base),
- quick scrolling through thousands of pictures
- copy photos
has a good write up
maybe i should go bang my head there...
