A program to enable catergorisation of photographs and clipart images.
ImageDB features a simple database-like structure with each image have user definable attributes, which is a major
improvement over keyword-based systems. complex searches can be performed involving multiple attributes.
In addition to categorisation of the images they can be previewed and thumbnails displayed.
Also built in is a slideshow.
I'm writing the program in Java.
It's at version 0.52 alpha and is pretty useable for its its primary purposes.
As it is still very rough around the edges and not at a finished distribution standard.
- Thumbs file corruption. Sometimes, for no apparent reason the '.thumbs' file becomes corrupted and start returning errors. This isn't
noticable anymore as all the errors are handled but it does cause the file to grow increasinly large.
Workaround: delete the relevant '.thumbs.index' file.
- Wrong Thumbnail for an image. Sometimes the wrong thumbnail is retrieved from the thumbnail storage system,
again not for an particular reason. This is probably related to an error when writing the thumb image.
Workaround: none, but next time any refresh is needed (either with F5 or by changing the position) the correct
image will be retrived.
Run the program with java -jar imageDB.jar
Its available in the download section
