KPhotoAlbum 2.2 reviewDownload
KPhotoAlbum program (formerly known as KimDaBa, KDE Image Database) is a tool for indexing, searching, and viewing images
KPhotoAlbum program (formerly known as KimDaBa, KDE Image Database) is a tool for indexing, searching, and viewing images. The indexing is done by telling KPhotoAlbum who is on the images, where the images were taken, and (optionally) adding descriptions.
It is highly optimized for easy indexing of images, so that it is possible to use it with thousands of images. It also allows you to browse your images easily, based on the properties (person, location, keywords) you specified when indexing.
I personally realized that this was not possible anymore, and especially for my digital images - but also for my paper images - I needed a tool to help me describe my images, and to search in the pile of images. This is exactly what KPhotoAlbum is all about.
With KPhotoAlbum it is today possible for me to find any image I have in less than 5 seconds, let that be an image with a special person, an image from a special place, or even both.
There is of course no such thing as free lunch - with KPhotoAlbum this means that you have to annotate all your images before you are set. KPhotoAlbum is, however, highly optimized for annotating images, so annotating 100 images in 10 minutes are no way impossible.
What's New in This Release:
This is the first release of the software formerly known as KimDaBa under the new name, KPhotoAlbum.
Among the new features are EXIF support (including the possibility to search for EXIF data) and a new thumbnail viewer.
