Beets for images?


#1

Hey, I love beets and want to something like it for image management. Does anyone know of something similar?

I don’t, but fwiw, this thread about “beets for video” has recently been revived:

You might find that interesting!

I recently came across Elodie, and then Beets and was thinking they were similar since they both create a very organized database. But they are opposites in a way, Beets can use several sources to add metadata, while Elodie uses metadata to organize the files.

Neat! Looks like a cool tool. FWIW, I would slightly differ in my explanation: beets does both of those things. It can fetch metadata from external databases, but then, when it organizes your files, it also uses tags to construct filenames. (I agree it doesn’t make much sense to do the former for photograph collections.)
