Photo Tagging (requiring a database for photos?)? - Gamester17 - 2007-12-18 15:28
I was just wondering if you guys were planning on implementing a native photo tagging feature in XBMC? Making it possible to search, and filter photos when browsing, per person, date/year, GPS (geotag) location, or other tags, via a library view mode in the photos section.
This would of course require the implementation of a database for the photos section in XBMC as well, (similar to the video and music databases).
...maybe also implement a full EXIF and IPTC metadata reader (or does XBMC already have one?)

XBMC already has one - whether or not it's "full" or not is a different question - it grabs most stuff (GPS, Exif, IPTC etc.) from jpegs at least.

I would still like to have a photos/pictures SQL database in XBMC

Has there been any change in the status of this feature suggestion?
Display Only Comment Information From Exif Information in Photos - KingJames - 2008-05-18 16:42
Is it possible to to take the comment part out of the exif information of a photo and have it displayed at the bottom of each photo that passes in slideshow. Ater using a exif editor u can add a description to the photo in the comment section and just display that part when hitting the info button on the controller or the remote, and have the font color maybe in yellow like subtitles.

Maybe if possible Xbmc can add a small time Exif editor to change info in the photo or to just add a description to the photo.
Organize / show pictures using tags? - m5a5l3m - 2008-07-25 16:34
Can we show pictures using tags (like Vista Media center)?
- kraqh3d - 2008-07-25 16:37
No. There is no library for pictures. Xbmc is currently bound to viewing pictures by folder. (But Xbmc does read EXIF tags and use it to determine proper image orientation.)
- m5a5l3m - 2008-07-25 16:51
Is there any plan to do so? I think it will be very helpful..
