The imgSeek image viewer
The imgSeek image viewer offers a unique alternative to the non-intuitive norm of searching by filename: you can find an photo based on motif.
The human mind can remember visual images much easier than it can remember facts and figures. This was the motivation for the imgSeek program (http:// imgseek. python-hosting. com), which groups image files according to motif. As an example, imagine you are looking for all the images in your collection that show a palm tree. You can simply feed an image of a palm tree to imgSeek, and the program will find all similar images. Alternatively, you can just sketch the motif you are looking for using the integrated painting tool, and imgSeek will present you with everything that resembles your sketch. Of course, imgSeek can still group images by file and directory names, creation data, or metadata entries. imgSeek can also export image collections to HTML files to help you set up a website, or it can populate a CD that you can then easily view in a browser.
