  1. This seems like a nifty little image manager.
    I have one big concern though, the tags are separated from the images. That it’s by Tracker instead of some separate database doesn’t make any difference, the whole tag structure is tied to one desktop.
    What if you loose that machine?, then you’d loose all tags you’ve spent hour on structuring. What if you have several machines? You’ll have to do the tagging on all of them.
    I think image tags should be embedded into the images themselves so the info will not get lost when moving them or modifying your system.

  2. @d_rylander: I think it sort of depends on type of images you work on. The only software I know that writes into RAW images, for example, is Photo Mechanics, and not everyone is really fond of software that writes into RAW (this is religious, perhaps :)). A good workaround would be to keep .xmp sidecars like Lr and ACR do.
