LibRaw is a library for reading RAW files obtained from digital photo cameras (CRW/CR2, NEF, RAF, DNG, and others). LibRaw is based on the source codes of the dcraw utility, though some of the drawbacks of dcraw have been eliminated. The users of the library are provided with an API to be used when writing their software programs.
VStar PhotoAlbum is a Web-based photo album designed for amateur photographers with digital cameras and their own Web server or home page. It alleviates the need to to spend much time creating Web pages to show off photographs, and also allows visitors to download original high-resolution images to print good quality pictures.
libiptcdata is a C library for manipulating the International Press Telecommunications Council (IPTC) metadata stored within multimedia files such as images. This metadata can include captions and keywords, often used by popular photo management applications. The library provides routines for parsing, viewing, modifying, and saving this metadata. The libiptcdata package also includes Python bindings and a command-line utility, iptc, for viewing and editing IPTC data in JPEG files.
pHoToMoLo is a toolset for managing JPEG images in JFIF or Exif format. Photomolo generates a static HTML 4.01- and CSS 1-based multi-resolution image gallery for a directory tree containing images. Exifiron losslessly compresses and corrects the orientation of Exif JPEG images. Jpegnail removes or embeds thumbnails. Jpegcom lets you edit embedded image comments using any text editor and image viewer. A shell script frontend for Exifiron is included for copying images from removable storage, such as USB or Compact Flash.
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.
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.
