I'm trying to figure out a new way of dealing with my archives and i was wondering if anyone knew a way to have the google's search by image function on mac??
That way it could find me images that have the same tones contrast etc etc...!
I don't know of any that will automatically populate the metadata. But what you are looking for is digital asset management. The most commonly installed of these is adobe bridge. Would check out the if you have it to see what functionality it has that may be able to help.
What i'm actually looking for is'nt automatic metadata filling but more search by image.
For instance in google images when i'm seraching the web with a photo i made, it reveals me the images that have close characteristics (color, exposure, LOD, grain etc etc...)
Now for organising my picture i'm using an addon for mac os x's finder called Pathfinder, which is incredibly usefull and adds everything the finder is missing (and more)
I'll give bridge a try, i'm using the mini one quite often!
