Vobcopy copies DVD .vob files to hard disk (thanks to libdvdread), decrypting them on the way (if libdvdcss is installed) and merges them into 2 GB files (or larger) with the name extracted from the DVD. It checks for enough free space on the destination drive and compares the copied size to the size on DVD (in case something went wrong during the copying). It can also mirror a whole DVD video part and copy single files.
iOta (Image Organization Tool and Archiver) is a tool to manage, organize, index, archive, and Web-publish your digital photography collection. It is backed by a BerkeleyDB database. The KDE/QT based front-end is designed to be simple, yet powerful. iOta allows the user to generate, uniquely rename, and index images to an embedded database. The user can also caption and describe each image, generate thumbnails and browsable HTML indexes, archive directories of images onto CDR, and search and edit properties of each photograph in the user's collection. In addition, all this information also travels with the image itself in the thumbnail EXIF header.
Image Leech is an automated image downloading program written in Perl. It will take a given address and retrieve all links to images and download. Each file downloaded can be renamed to prevent conflicts and to create an easily viewable collection. Other features include the ability to filter given Web pages, and traverse linked pages.
SortImagesGUI is a Java Swing application for sorting still images from digital cameras by capture date from the EXIF header. The images are sorted into subfolders by year, month, and day. Most of the EXIF-metadata are inserted into a MySQL database with the MD5 sum of the image file as a primary key. This makes it easy to find out if an image already exists.
Optar is a software codec that generates 2D bar codes for data storage on paper using a black and white laser printer and scanner. It fits 200kB on an A4 page, uses Golay forward error correction codes to ensure reliability, and can also be used to store data on photographic film.
