that could be highly interesting. I just installed RECOLL which is a system search utility. as I have around 580GB on my hard drive these days I need a good search utility.
RECOLL indexed my entire hard drive. I took about 4 hours to do it but as that's done now it is supposed to keep itself up to date. I scheduled it to update at 10AM daily.
the interesting thins is RECOLL finds images immediatly as well for me -- if I have renamed the image with a suitable file name ( title ) .
I had kinda resisted data base type application programs for two reasons -- (1) I don't want it to hide my files in its own data base: i want to have the usual access via the folder program, and (2) added use of system resources
so it appears RECOLL is going to be a good addition here and I'll probably re-think the database thing. My brother is a Creative Suite addict; it would be interesting to see if this DarkTable could be an alternative for him. I really want to get him away from his Windmill.
