Need to create a Mac Based Image Library
I have thousands of photos of all sorts, and need to build an automated search where I can add attributes and pull up images which satisfy my search criteria.
These are not modern photo's of people, so face recognition is not relevant. Photos are of buildings, maps, historical details, and a few faces, but even those are not usually photographs and tend to be paintings. So, no face rec.
Also, these are my own private images and do not warrant a cloud solution. Privacy and being able to protect my datas is more important to me. BUT, I would consider using an Azure solution, IF I also had total access to my images with no Internet connection. (I do want some exposure to Azure, as a .NET Developer)
What tools exist that are configurable for this?
I need to add as many attributes as I would like. I need the search tool to reconfigure to include a new attribute.
I am a .NET Software Engineer, so a bit of coding would not scare me.
I would not be afraid to use a cloud solution IF I could also be able to ensure I have the ability to run it locally on my MacBook. My images are controversial, and could cause the master of the universe to try and cut my account...
What about a WordPress plug-in? I would host WP on my Mac if required for this.
I am trying to find a tool (or tools) I can use that will save me a world of work.
