Some work has been done on the tagging module adding a tree view of the tags (for hierarchical tags), give more informations about the usage of the tags (count, usage) and last, give the possibility to rename the tags and to modify the hierarchy.
It remains a bit of work:
- improve the suggestion list. The idea is to provide a list of tags which are the most used with the already attached tags on selected images.
- add synonyms
- improve the control of exportation of tags. That’s maybe the where your feedback is the most important,
Today, the only option is “omit hierarchy in simple tags list” (when hierarchical tags are broken down into a simple tags list). The idea is to replace this by some options on the tags themselves. The 2 obvious tag options are:
- category or helper. This tag is only there to structure the hierarchy of tags but is not a tag in itself. For example in color|white, color helps to group the colors but it doesn’t bring any information to the image. This is not exported.
- private. This tag is useful for your personal usage of your database (find the images of your mother in law fro example) but you may not want to find the name of your relatives on the public place.
Once the tags are configured, we could have an option at export time to export or not the private tags.
That’s where I am. What are your suggestions, your needs ?
