One Weekend and KPhotoAlbum is starting to support EXIF

It's getting late so I'd better soon go to bed. I've been working non stop all weekend on getting KPhotoAlbum to show EXIF information. You can now do that in two different places. Either using the dialog you can see to the right, or in the viewer. From the Settings menu it is possible to specify which exif keywords to use for each of the locations.

Next I'd like to give it a shot of storring all the EXIF keywords for all images in a database (not in the index.xml file as it would explode from that, but rather some SQL database). With the information in a database, I'd like to develop a dialog where you may search for images based on exif information, something like saying "Shutter Speed should be fater than 1/125". Don't get your hopes too high yet, this is all dreaming on my part, afterall I have burnt my fingers once on databases and KPhotoAlbum. But I will give it a shot.
