and display your fotos/videos. So you organize your image archive. You can create any number of foto
albums. A single foto album is a union of files, data base and

possibly find them without a data base, for example by sophisticated
names of folders and files. Users
of metadata go a step beyond. Metadata fields are part of
each foto. EXIF data is generated by the digital camera.

software to generate the metadata or for software to search for
metadata. Even more convenient than the use of metadata is an image
data base software for management of very many fotos/videos. Among
the advantages of an image data base software are: creating custom

archiving, finding and displaying. There are no image processing
That makes the software simple and clear, and if you need an image
processing function anyway you simply can jump to your personal
image processing program from the current image.
