Thanks Owen, I couldn't find any reviews of ShotWell on CNET, PC Mag or ComputerWorld. But I did find their site and good amount of comments on it elsewhere.
Owen, I am not a Ubuntu/Linux user, my old PC has Windows XP on it, do you know if ShotWell works on Windows XP? Owen to better illustrate what I'm trying to do, I tried to show you below; what you see below is all in one folder labeled things to do, and each item you see is I guess a file or folder by priority the numeral (1) being highest priority and "A" being highest priority in respective folders. I know were off GIMP topic but this is in the path and I wanted to know a little more about labeling files and folders based on what I've envisioned. Here at least in my head is what I am going for....remember there are thousands of these "Things To Do" that will be in play here and dragged and dropped to differing folders depending on priority and many of course at some point will be deleted (By the way this is only part of my scanning project). Keep in mind each file is ONE 3x5 inch index card scanned into my PC as a .JPG. THINGS TO DO (MAIN FOLDER) THINGS TO DO (1) (SUB-FOLDER) (A) -Go To Bank (FILE) -Change Oil In Car (FILE) -Cut Your toe nails (FILE) (B) -Take A Walk -Do The Dishes -Make Doctor's Appointment (C) -Shine My Shoes -Weed Eat -Call Attorney (D) -Computer Maintenance -Program DVR -Gaze At My Navel THINGS TO DO (2) (SUB-FOLDER) (A) -xxxxxxxx (FILE) -xxxxxxxxxx -xxxxx (B) -xxxx -xxxxxxx -xx (C) -xxxx -xxxxxxxxxxx -xxxxxx (D) -xxxxxxx -xxx -xxxxx THINGS TO DO (3) (SUB-FOLDER) (A) -yyyyyyyy (FILE) -yyyy -yyyyyyyyyy (B) -yyy -yyyyyyy -yyyyyyyyyy (C) -yyyyyyyyyy -yyyyy -yyyyyyy (D) -yyyyyy -yyyyyyyy -yyy I hope I'm not overwhelming you here. Are you clear on what I'm trying to do? Based on my posting? Before we go down this road, if you don't mind please review my post again, to make sure were on the same page here. I know I can with Irfanview, scan one 3x5 inch index card at a time and it will automatically number my scans with a good deal of flexibility with regards to settings. FastStone has some of these same features and XnView similar as well but Irfanview seems to have the most flexibility with settings during the scan process. In other words using one of the above is a speedy process, GIMP is unable to auto-number. So now I'm left with .JPG files of my single 3x5 inch index cards and now the goal is to do what I said in my post about making these files act more like tiles or icons so they stay where put and do not interrupt the order like you get with standard 001.JPG file numbering approach. To expound, refer to my post again. Thanks Owen, "FriendlyBeginner" P.S....Owen if you don't mind can you tell me in layman about how these tags you mentioned below would look and work with my index card scans. Keep in mind, I AM a beginner. >Use a program like shotwell and tag each file with its file name. Then >no matter where it is you can retrieve it from the tag. > >The tag might also be useful for further identification of the cards -- FriendlyBeginner (via www.gimpusers.com/forums) _______________________________________________ gimp-user-list mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user-list
