Description:

Abstract: Associate year, event, photographer, people on image and other comments with images. And synchronize this database with your peers.

Preamble
In late 2009 I have been faced with the fact that there are 6500 photographs and slides from 1969 to 2000. These have been digitized (thanks to Hans). But they will be lost somehow if nobody stores them in a way a non insider can find what he is looking for. Therefore I started to develop this program (incl. learning a new, more suitable language than Matlab).

Program
This program is an interface to a sqlite database, it is implemented in a platform independent way using Python and PyQt4. It aims to provide a means to associate meta-data to images (year, event, photographer, people on the image and some comments). Most importantly it enables a rather small group of people who can meet physically to share and synchronize their archives, images and associated information (e.g. by storing them on an external hd). Moreover it allows to export images out of the database for uses in presentations or compilations.

Install
This program depends on Python 2.x and PyQt4. A version for Python 3.x is not available, but I tried to make the code in a way for easy conversion to Python 3.x.
Just download the Python files from the link below and place them in a folder of your choice. The program is started by executing the Antony.py file.
Currently there are three translations available: English, German and NEW: French.
The translation will be loaded automatically according to your system locale/language.

Development
I will be glad to receive feedback on the program. Any suggestions are welcome. I did my best to translate the initially German program to English, so I welcome tips on this too.
