Searching for EXIF information

OK, I did actually managed to pull this off - It is now possible to search for EXIF.

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.

New camera means a new direction for KPhotoAlbum

23 Nov 2005 23:00 +0000

I've been staying with a customer for month now and lives/work in a cubicle landscape - rather different from working from home which I'm used to.

After approx one and a half month I got to talk about digital images with one of my inmates, and I told him about KPhotoAlbum. First, that is rather extraordinary that I manage to work almost two month with a guy without having told him anything about KPhotoAlbum :-) What is much more extraordinary is that he previously worked with Bibble Labs, and is close friends with the owner. Bibble is an image processing application that works on Linux. WHAT ARE THE ODDS?

Well a new camera has been on my wishlist for a long time, but this opportunity was just too great, so I bought myself a new camera, and will try to see how KPhotoAlbum can work together with Bibble.

The camera is a Canon Rebel XT and comes with a EFS 18-55 lense. With it I bought a Canon 50mm f/1.8 II camera lense, and a Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III telephoto zoom lens.

So finally, everyone of you who have hoped for KPhotoAlbum to be better with RAW files, stay tuned, now I've got a camera spitting them out, so it won't take long before KPhotoAlbum does something with them.

KPhotoAlbum is not Dead

16 Sep 2005 22:00 +0000

It might seem so from the amount of releases made recently, but KPhotoAlbum is indeed not dead. I'm working hard on a lot of restructuring, and I've spent/wasted a lot of time on the SQL backend (which I gave up on, due to lack of SQL knowledge - any takers?)

As a side track of things, I've started making small flash videos showing things in KPhotoAlbum, check them out by pressing Videos in the side bar.
