Key Features of Photo DATAbase:
- Key Once and use for years to come.
Once data is keyed and stored it is there for you for the years to come. This data describes
the image for down the road and allows searching for groups of images, viewing this data, and
generation websites which show the photos and their data.
- IPTC Support
Excellent IPTC support! Picks up existing IPTC data as photos are added to DBGallery. Automatically
writes data base to the file. Picks up changes made outside DBGallery. Supports editing as many photos'
IPTC data as you wish.
- Data Searching
Search data based on keywords, subject, author, notes, and description...or all at the same time.
- Logical Views
Logical vs. Physical: A physical view of photos is how they are physically stored in folders
(the old way of trying to find photos), whereas logical views are views of how photos may be
organized by photo data. They may be organized by camera, for example, or year, month, ISO, number of views, etc.
- Build Collections
A fast and convenient way to build collections of photos. At any time you are viewing a photo that you
feel would fit into a category or collection of photos, simply drag the image to a Quick Collection.
Search for a set of photos, or choose a set of folders and images, and press the “Generate Website”
button from the main menu. HTML is created, images copied and converted to the size you choose,
thumbnails created, and data extracted.
Send photos and a selection of associated data via email. The email has data and the image in the
body of the email, with the data just above the image. Advanced options are available such as including
the original full size image as attachment along with the smaller image in the body. eMailGallery is a
great way to send photos to family and friends(include descriptions to give a complete story).
Given that the system has database core it can generate profession looking reports. The reports included
in this version include Counts by Camera, Author, Subjects, Year to Year, and Time of Year, as well as a
number of Stock Agency reports (for those that sell their photos).
- Edit Mulitple Images
Enter data for multiple images at the same time. Example: I just took 300 photos for a “Coca-cola”
marketing commission. Set “Coca-cola” and other keywords on all 300 photos at the same time.
- Move Data Around
Once keyed, data and/or photos can be moved around via drag and drop to other folders. This is useful,
for example, when creating collections of images where one simply does drag’n drop of images and it’s
data. Another practical example is for re-arranging your photos.
- Photo Central: Drag’n Drop Images to Other Programs
When needing to find a photo to do something with like emailing, editing in a photo editor, or to print,
pull up DBGallery, do a quick search, and drag’n drop the photo to the email client, editor, folder, etc.
- Flatten Folders
A rare feature not often found. When showing a given folder, press “Show Subfolders” and all subfolder
images are displayed as if it was one folder. E.g. If a given trip’s images were organized by having
each day in its own folder, pressing Flatten would show all the trip’s images as if it was one folder.
- Quick Info Cards
Roll the mouse over a thumbnail in DBGallery to see the image and data summary. One Quick Info Card view
is shown here although there are four: Overview(as shown), IPTC, File & Exif, and Agency data
- View Counts
Keeps tabs on an image’s popularity by tracking how many times it was viewed. One of the search tabs
allows filtering based on number of views.
- Set Wallpaper
Right click any thumb and set it as wallpaper: centered, tiled, or stretched. Has an intelligent stretch,
where if an image is within 15% of your image resolution ratio it stretches the image to fill the screen.
