I'm currently thinking about making LMCE usable to manage my digital photos. Here are some ideas of what I have in mind. The good thing is, the basics are there - a powerful media tagging system. Unfortunately the tagging capabilities for pictures are really limited, the only tag offered in the web admin is "Title"...
Here are some things I would like to do
- add EXIF/IPTC support for update media deamon (at least on my 0710 system no tags from the images are synced to the DB)
- have more tags, maybe even custom tags?
- allow linking of tags
- allow linking of files
- improve web admin
All of this seems to be pretty straight forward since it's only extending the existing system. What do you guys think? Good/bad idea? Am I missing something?
BTW, another idea that is sticking to my mind for some time: having a second web app with a more user friendly interface (AJAX etc.) to support all tasks a normal user will do, e.g. managing your media, scheduling recordings and so on. The web admin could become a real administration frontend. However, this is a much bigger task
