exif parsing would be great.. - mertaroid - 2009-02-16 14:35
I would totally be for creating a photo library using exif data from my photos...

We already do exif parse. This thread is about collating that info into a db for browsing purposes.

hi all !
The idea to bring picture infos (exif, tags...) into a DB came also in my mind and I found this topic.
A real media center shouldn't be composed only by music and video. I really think picture DB is needed !
I'm going to work on it through python, but could be much better to integrate it in xbmc.
I have tons of family photos, and would like to run a slideshow using dates and not only folders.
Please, please.... add this functionnality !!

Is there any new news here? This thread was started in '06 but not much has happened since then. Is this because of the enourmity of the task of creating a pictures DB/library?
I, personally, would like to be able to view all my pictures in XBMC in an intuitive way. But currently it doesn't seem possible. I have all my photos downloaded from my camera and then tag them with keywords using Adobe Bridge. So, in Adobe Bridge if i want to see all my photos taken on/at a beach or just search keywords for beach and it returns all those images tagged 'beach'..Something like this would be great in XBMC.
Also great would be the ability of smart playlists etc. whereby folders are created based on tags (think genre/s etc. for movies).
What do we need to do to get a DEV or ANYBODY interested to do this? I certainly would if i knew how. But as i say all the time, i only have ideas, not technical knowedge.
picture/images library - ideas and help - The-Boxhead - 2009-04-14 21:30
I've seem to remember that scanning exif info of jpeg pictures
to database much the same as for videos and music was a suggestion
brought up for the google summer of code 2009.
What is the current development status, is it going to happen ?
Reason i ask is that the picture/slideshow part of xbmc has been left out for so long time. I understand that this function is not as important as others but i use the picture feature allot to show images to friends and familly when they visit.'
So i decided to maybe add some more stuff to mypics.xml but from
what i can find in the wiki regarding pulling out info like exif its not much to do as of now, i.e not that many controls to use.
Okay so i didn't see this thread, now that my post got moved here i find it a little embarrasing

This is my take and it's probably all re-iterated from this monster of a thread, devs feel free to correct me.
If any of the current devs were inclined or motivated to do this, it would definitely already be done. The code is 90%+ in place in the music and video libraries. "All" it takes is an enterprising person with the required know-how to piece it together
I'll be waiting in the back dishing out numbers to interested parties.
(and yes, I moved the post)

I really hope this feature becomes reality some point in time.
db info would open op a new world to skinners like myself who would
like to create some new view/info types for pictures.
I guess there also would be a need for some new type of controls in the skinning engine to support such a feature...

This doesnt sound too bad. Hope you are right and sooner or later someone will picki up this feature. Would really be great and a fantastic alternative to the iphoto plugin that I currently use.
Pictures Tags - some questions - m.savazzi - 2009-06-06 13:44
I have my picture library (29K pictures) all indexed with the picture tags.
In Aeon is possible to show the tags in the picture screens?
Can I search/select by tags?
Can I sort by tags?
I tried but so far I was not able to show them in the skin nor to do the other options...
sorry to ask but I'm quite new to Aeon...

Fully agreed. That would be fantastic!!!
