Hi everyone,

I save a lot of images I find around the web (not my own images), and Iím about to start doing more of this for a blog Iím launching soon.

Iím looking for a tool/app that will let me do some of all of the following when I find an image that I like on a site and want to save it to my PC:
- Assign keywords to the image
- Automatically populate the URL where the image was found
- Automatically populate the date when the image was found
- Easily name the file whatever I want to name it

My purpose for this is to make it easier to catalogue images on my PC and to contact the image owner to ask for permission to use the image on my blog.

Iím picturing a multi-field dialog box that pops up as soon as I right-click the image and choose ďSave Picture AsĒ.

I donít mind if I canít find one tool that does ALL these things. Iíd be happy with just a couple of them. As far as Iím concerned, anything is better than having to somehow include the URL in the image name that Iím entering, etc.

Can anyone help?

Thanks!

Hi OO7 girl,

I`m guessing not as you`ve had no replies. I`ve certainly never heard of any software that would suit your requirements.

Does the URL show if you print the page?

There's a number of good graphics programs that will do three of the criteria above. The other you'll have to do by hand (url).

Adobe CS3's Bridge lets you assign meta data to a photo relatively easy, rate it (ie. 5 stars) and you can rename batches of photos in a folder all at the same time and can even include the date in the naming. It has a cool UI that lets you scale the picts up and down also. Additionally it will lets you sort them by your highest ranking if you want to.
