There are many photo-gallery programs available. Zoph is different, as it concentrates on the management of large collection of photos instead of just showing them on the Web. It can store a lot of information about your photos, including the regular EXIF info, photographer, location, title, description, rating, and the people in the photo. Photos can appear in multiple albums and categories. Additional features include search, slideshows, lightboxes, email, access privileges, and multiple languages.
tmphoto is a Web photo gallery with a fairly advanced metadata structure, allowing photos to be described in terms of place, category, persons in the photo, and events. The places, categories, persons, and events can be further described. It offers a nice browsing interface based on the metadata.
Antony is an off-line and cross platform tool for organizing and sharing photos that makes it possible for a group of peers to keep a common photo, image, or picture collection current and synchronized. Users can tag images (year, event name, event place, or event type, photographer, people, comments). Images are stored in a local file system, and tags are stored in an SQLite database. To identify images, their MD5 sum is used, which makes it possible for users to merge collections. Images can be searched using tags, and images and metadata can be exported to a folder. A thumbnail representation and a zooming image viewer are provided.
