Not sure if it conflicts or whatever, but my wife always wanted to have Photoshop/OS tags to be read and added as system tags. Is that related to the Keywords part, or are those tags a different thing then the Keywords?
I haven’t considered more advanced formats such as Photoshop or AI, but if the formats are open, contain an entry for tags or keywords and we can find a PHP library to extract the headers, then it shouldn’t be a problem to extract that information.
The plan is to use the tagging API to store that information, so in that respect the spreadsheet is wrong.
The biggest hurdle though is that not all formats have a specific field to hold keywords, so a lot of images may end up without any tags.
Yeah, that change made me sad, but then I understand the reasons behind it.
I’d like to support as many types as possible, but the biggest problem always comes from having enough resources to maintain the project, so past a certain project size, it will depend on the number of contributors.
Photoshop / AI use about as open a format as Microsoft WOrd, that is, it’s popular enough that people have done a lot of work to reverse engineer it, but they remain hostile and uncooperative to such efforts. Building PSD support into Krita was an absolute pain, and one that continues to rquire work to support more than the most rudimentary features.
The student had some mid-terms and will resume work on this soon.
V1.0 only looks at exif data and is a very basic app at the moment, but once we move it to Nextcloud it should be easier for more people to contribute.
