Simple Photo Tagger

If you’re looking for an easy and fast way to add comments to the thousands of digital pictures sitting on your harddisk, look no further. I have just the program for you: Simple Photo Tagger.

SimplePhotoTagger1    SimplePhotoTagger2

It’s a program focused on one single task: helping you get through commenting on your digital photos as fast and efficiently as I can imagine.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Select a folder that contains the pictures you want to work on.
  2. The first picture is shown.
  3. Type your comment.
  4. Press Enter.
  5. The next picture is shown.

Now just repeat steps 3-5 until you’re done with all the pictures in the folder. Then go back to step 1.

The program remembers the last ten comments you entered and lets you re-use them with a single click. It also lets you re-use the last comment with the Ctrl+L keystroke.

There’s also an option to add and remove keywords (sometimes called tags).

[Update 8/11/2011]

I’m looking for testers and feedback, so for a limited time I’ll waive the nominal amount that I normally charge for the program.

The testing period is over (it’s been close to three years and I’ve had no reports of bugs or suggestions for improvements). If you’re interested in removing the evaluation limitation by purchasing a key, send $10 via PayPal to geektieguy [at] and (optionally) indicate the user name you’d like the program to display after entering the key. If you don’t include a user name, I’ll use the email address from which the payment was sent as the user name.

Please also add the email address geektieguy [at] to your list of “approved” email addresses so the license key email doesn’t end up in your junk email folder.

The limited evaluation version only loads up to five pictures from the selected folder and doesn’t let you add or remove keywords/tags. It also doesn’t let you narrow the pictures worked on to pictures that have no comment yet.

Download the program here (version 1.0.10), then contact me through comments on this page to get a key.

[End Update 8/11/2011]

To install the program, unpack the zip file, then run setup.exe.

Searched for wicexplorer, found this. Can I get a key? And do you know where I can find wicexplorer on Vista?

A key will be on its way soon. The WIC tools (WIC explorer is part of those) are here:

I totally mis-read that page to say that the *Platform Update* contained the tools, based on the line “The Windows Vista, pre Platform Update for Windows Vista, includes the following tools” line. Once you asserted that the tools were on that page, I figured that they had to be there somewhere, and then I found them, and figured out that the text was trying to tell you which version to get.

Thanks everyone who tried out the program and asked for a key. I’ve decided that the testing and feedback period is over. From now on I’m charging the nominal amount of $10 for full use of the program. See further details in the updated post above. Thanks!

Please read the main page on SimplePhotoTagger, if you haven’t yet. The period where I gave away keys has ended. You now purchase a key via PayPal.
