With Tagosphere PC you can store photos and meta data from Flickr to the PC. The result looks like a web page. (It is an XML file which uses an XSL style sheet to display its content like HTML).
The data is saved, but how to find it?
The new program tagoSearch does it (Open Source, GPL). The program searches for the saved files and loads the names of tags, sets and groups into a database.
It is possible to search and browse for tags. The number behind each tag shows how many photos you have on your PC for this tag. The tags are sorted by count for better display.
Elements of the tagoSearch program:
1) The toolbar.
History buttons: next / prior list or photo.
Search for a tag
2) Photo list
A list of photos shown as Item Cards for the current selection. An Item Card shows a thumbnail with some additional information like: name, author and tags
3) Selection tree
Select photos using top 10 tags or some dates
4) Status bar
Shows the number of photos currently found in the database.
The program is hosted on SourceForge.
