KimDaBa - The KDE Image Database

KDE User and Administrator Conference

Speakers: Jesper K. Pedersen

Language: English

Check the Schedule for an overview of all talks during this conference.

If you are the proud owner of a digital camera, then you have likely already found that it can be quite a bit of challenge to find a given image easily.

If you do not believe me, try finding an image of you mom with nobody else on the image but her, taken somewhere else but at her home, some time between 1980 and 1990. If I have such an image, I will be able to find it with KimDaBa within less than 10 seconds!

KimDaBa is high tuned to allow you to easily annotate your images for later searching. Of course KimDaBa also allows you to see a slide show of your images, generate HTML of your images etc.

In this presentation Jesper will do a live demo of KimDaBa, showing its capabilities while showing images from his personal image database with more than 6.000 images.
