Projects / JCap


JCap is a Java application for adding captions and descriptions to your digital photograph collection and includes a search dialog for finding photos later. It is completely self-contained; it doesn't require a separate database application or Web server to run. Captions, descriptions, and keywords are stored in plain text files in the same folder as the images they describe and can be read by any application that can read text files. The primary goals are: to help you find photos later, to help share photos with others, and to be able to read photo captions and descriptions thirty years from now on whatever computer you happen to have at the time.
