got that. But I think, a lot of this information is really useful when "managing" you photographs. On the other hand I would never use it to search photos from the frontend. I think we have to separate between the management which can easily be done on the backend, i.e. lmce admin or whatever, and the user interface of the frontend, i.e., orbiter.
This comes down to having only few attributes that need to be searchable or sortable by the frontend. Is there a way to exclude certain attributes from showing up on the orbiter? Maybe we could introduce another table field "hide_from_orbiter" or something?
