I am inquiring as to the feasibility of a photo indexing software. We have probably 500 photos that have been purchased from istock and gettyimages over the years. I believe that our team would utilize these existing photos more frequently, rather than looking to purchase new ones, if we could find a way to index the photos across multiple categories and then search for the photos. We probably spend about $1000 on new photos each year.
Does anyone have a suggestion for how to index several hundred photos, such that the photos can be categorized using multiple characteristics AND then the photo database can be searched using those characteristics as the query field.
For example, a photo of a family eating together outdoors might be categorized as (family, lunch, dinner, picnic, food, man, woman, child, barbeque) and then anyone putting just one of those characteristics (i.e., family) into the search field would be able to find that photo as well as other photos that were categorized with the same characteristic.
