Request: searching sobfolders with tags

Post by UrbanCoyote » Tue Jul 19, 2011 12:15 pm

Hi there, I have photos that are set out as a folder hierachy on the computer.

They are all tagged. So I'd like to start at the absolute root of all my folders and start typing in tag names - I think it would be awesome for XnView MP to be able to display these tags dynamically from all the child folders. Combined with multiple tags this could be a powerful features.

For example: If I start on my absolute root photo folder and type in:

Outdoor, trees, overcast

XnViewMP will search all child photo's tags and display photos containing all these keywords. And if I were to type this:

Outdoor, trees, overcast -flash

It would do exactly the same but remove the photos with the "flash" tag.

Hope that makes sense!

Currently the only way is to use 'search'

Thanks, Pierre. Is something like this possible to add though long-term?

I think it's useful since XnView uses a database, to be able to manage many thousands of images and search this database would make it quite powerful. Pretty much exactly how Picasa works when searching images.
