Linux app to manage a large image library?


Hello,

I have a large image collection (pictures I've scanned from film or taken, drawings/creations, images I've downloaded/bought from stock photography sources). Now I would like some tool to manage it.

Requirements:

- Using a database server (MySQL preferred, as I already have it working).
- Indexing by tags and description.
- Needs to support file formats JPG, PNG, GIF, SVG.
- Multi-user support would be a plus.
- A browser-based solution (i.e. that doesn't need "client" software) would also be a plus.
- Must be open source.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I suggest coppermine. It is really good if you want multi-user and/or browser-based.

Otherwise, I tend to use digikam on my desktop - data is stored in sql-lite but it is not multi-user and not web-based.

Coppermine looks good, trying it right now.

Thanks.

OOPS... Sorry, it does support tag-based searching, though it calls them "keywords". Damn me.

I was just going to say that.... you will want to use the batch upload - ftp/sftp copy the images in batch and load them into an album in batches...
