Because you prefer Linux suggest you post your question in this forum:

Latest version of Picasa-3 not too bad.  Dunno how literally 'tons of photos' should be taken.  If number is really huge Picasa might not be suitable.   For average quantities (100's) it works fine.

Hrmm. I'm using Picasa & an xml/xslt based database Picasa is used to sort/search the images visually (and facial recognition picks up the odd ID I wouldn't have noticed otherwise), while the XML contains all the metadata (Site, ID's, themes, etc) for textual searching, organisation, etc. Currently, I'm sitting at about 290k images, in 12k folders (92Gb). Picasa works quite well at most aspects of what it does - however, it is prone to locking up/slowing the fuck down on me. Probably due to the data it's continuously processing (it's still scanning for ID's after 2.5 months).

what kind of face recognition software are you using.

Picasa has it built in. You may desire to change the thresholds, which are set via one of the options menus. When they gave the option of changing the thresholds (essentially, how much the neural network doing the recognition has to agree that it's the same person), they changed the setting to ~80%. This caused me some problems, as it was automatically adding some girls to the collections of others, etc. I now have it set to the strictest threshold (95% I believe), and this works reasonably well. It takes a LONG time to set shit up, but it manages my porn with 1090+ pornstars ID'ed, and typically pics up anyone that I've already ID'ed if I add a gallery. It's all about providing it with enough data to train the AI on first. (ie: it is 100% correct in ID'ing Alisa Kiss, since I have several thousand of her images, but may erroneously detect others that have

Learn HTML. It�s simple, and each time you add something to your archive it only takes a moment to take the steps to add it to your index. I organize video, only slightly more complicated than photos. And photos are only what was or parts of what was or could have been a FMV. I�ve been debating if I should begin building a �Peachy� based index. Say for example someone is looking for a blonde. So I view blondes HTLM index. She had a mole on her ass so I go to blondes with moles on there asses. Or a tat on her arm. Or a short haired blonde with a mole on her ass and a tat on her arm. Would probably narrow it down enough to ID her if I�ve indexed her thread into the archive. That would take time. I�d need to crate 100�s of template based HTML, that part is simple. Then one at a time examine each model and add her traits to the proper pages. If I do this I may be able to use some help. Then once the index is large enough I�ll host it and make it public� We�ll see.

Why would you use HTML, when you could use XML & XSLT? I really don't understand why you would muddle data with presentation, when using XSLT you can use sorts & queries.

I love presentation. And template based, also using hard coded app makes adding the videos quite simple.

Odd. You can produce similar stuff using XSLT, since that is your template. You also keep your data completely separate from your styling code - which means if you wish to change something, you change 1 file rather than all of them. Another way to consider it, is that if I change my mind and decide I want an Excel spreadsheet instead, I simply write a (very small) XSLT file to present my data in comma-separated-volume form. Then I import the CSV file. Bam, spreadsheet. I also feel that javascript + XSLT -> Filtered results == Win. I'm considering writing a Java applet to read in my XML file, simply because I want to do a few things that XSLT won't quite do well, but they're very specific things that the average pornuser wouldn't encounter. Nice screenshots, btw.

I've been wondering how to organise my collection of around 6,000 photos. At the moment I have them stored in three folders - lesbian, straight, solo - on an external harddrive and just view them via Windows. What I'd like to do is tag pictures so that it will be easier to find pictures of a particular theme rather than trawl through the folders. Picasa would be ideal but I use that to organise my family photos and would obviously like to keep my porn pictures totally separate! Does anybody know of similar, preferably free, programs similar to Picasa?

Mandriva 2010 Spring and Wine is running Picasa perfectly. Im not a photo-organization guru so I have some learning curve but thank you for all of the advice.

As a bit of advice, I would say to raise the thresholds for Identification acceptance in Picassa - or else the neural network behind it gets given a tad too much leeway and makes a lot more mistakes.

You will find this in:

Tools

-> Options

-> Name Tags tab

Now set 'Suggestion Threshold' to 95 and 'Cluster Threshold' to 95. This is the confidence level that the neural network running behind the scenes has to have before it says 'Yes, this image is Alisa Kiss', etc.

Thanks prdrok, The Linux version as I said works great for those who like myself are anti Microsoft. (a story for another day goooooo. open source) The Linux version does not have the "Name Tags Tab" in the "Options" area. So I had to break out a old Dell Laptop and install Vista. as prdrok stated I also moved the Threshold to "95" as so far it has worked perfectly I am at 3% complete covering 146 folders and 250k+ files. Thanks to all this has been a great new Thread. Thanks C8's

This is for windows, but I wanted to bring it up and there's no point in starting another topic. Anyhow has anyone tried windows live photo gallery? IMO it is awesome for tagging videos and sorting by the models name and website(s). Just add the models name under people tags, then the tags under descriptive tags, and the website under caption. Quick, easy and effective.

I'm sure it works just as well with folders of photos. When you have tons of content it is VERY handy. If you want to check it out just click on learn about photo gallery in the link below.

Haven't yet tried Windows Live Photo Gallery.

Have been using Google's Picasa-3 for ages to full satisfaction.  Is doing same if not more.

I just tagged some 400ish videos with photo gallery, or I might consider checking it out. Plus, as you mentioned it's Google (Web first, then the world lol). As long as I can type in busty long haired brunette and find just that then I'm happy.
