imgSeek is a photo collection manager and viewer with content-based
search and many other features. The query is expressed either as a
rough sketch painted by the user or as another image you supply (or an
image in your collection).
You may also do slideshows, generate web photo albums, edit image
metadata including EXIF and IPTC data, organize images into a keyword
hierarchy, and more.

A bug related to settings prevented users with python2.3 from viewing
images on the preview window, so 0.8.2 sole purpose is to fix that.

Not much development effort has been put lately on new imgSeek
features, so expect only bugfixes to be released in the next few

Meanwhile we've been working on the imgSeek-net sub-project
(http://imgseek.sourceforge.net/net/  -- 'imgseek-net' cvs module) and
on the 'SQL' cvs branch of imgSeek, whose long term objective would be
the usage of popular RDBMS as a transparent replacement for the
current implementation of a grouping and metadata database on top of
python's 'marshal' module.

Work on the imgSeek-lite (http://imgseek.sourceforge.net/lite/  --
'imgseek-lite' cvs module) subproject will also slowdown, as most of
the code there will evolve into the 2nd imgseek-net client prototype.

- Python 2.2.x, QT 3.x and PyQT 3.5. (3.4 should work)
- ImageMagick development files or QT development files.
- Python Imaging Library.
