What does this application do for you
Over the past several years I have built up a
collection of photos and pictures that have been important in our lives.
However, I had a big problem managing and organizing them on my computer
over the years. I would lose track of the pictures and which folders I had
them in. When I moved to a new computer, this problem became even worse with
pictures all of the place. Then I got a smart phone and have been having a
lot of fun taking pictures with it, but where the pictures where was even
more of a challenge.
I tried a number of different ideas and approaches for
managing all these pictures and also all the pictures I was taking with my
smart phone. I didn�t find anything that was working well for me. So, I
started talking to friends about what they were doing and found that other
people were also quite challenged with this.
So, I decided to build out a new Windows application to
really address this problem for myself and hopefully for my friends. After a
long process of building and experimenting with ideas for picture management
I have got to a good level of functionality for addressing the overall
problem of picture management for my pictures across my computer and my
photos from my smart phone.
How does it work?
The application helps in two ways. First is a master
catalog of all the known pictures on your computer that you want it to keep
track of. The other is a feature to allow you to build albums of collections
of pictures that might be family events, great trips you have taken,
memories of important life events or any topic that you want.
The catalog keeps track of each picture like a library
catalog. For every picture there is an info card for that picture which has
information about the picture. The application keeps track of where the
actual picture file is in the card and when you want to open the picture or
add it to an album, then application accesses the picture in the computer
file system where it is.
It will also allow you to easily create and organizer photos into
picture albums. You can also share or export an album of pictures. This
makes it easy to share your picture albums.
