I've never posted to a mailing list/user group. I think I got this. I have several thousand photos on 2 hard drives (C:\ 550GB SSD) & (D:\ 2 TB). Some with faces and many without. A lot of these people are deceased and I want to find them. They are on random places on both hard drives. I'd rather just import everything into DIGI. WHY? I have ADHD and I might have put some photos in dumb places. Sorry, it won't happen again! My father passed so a video will be made with friends or old photos I find. I've used MS Photos / People since day one. I don't like it. I do not think I like windows to be honest.
I'd like to have Digi search my c:\ & d:\ and identify everything - I am sure this is a simple set up option. Once it searches and finds all the faces then what? If I had to guess there are 5,000 photos total(myself and others uploaded). After I get all the faces recognized and tagged. I am assuming there is going to be a massive pool (database) of photos somewhere. I will not care about most of them, Should I worry about it? For now I mostly want to find the people. Once I am better organized, despite ADHD, all photos will go into D:\photos. Space is not a huge issue but I would like to save as much as possible. I will use Digikam for a lot more than this later. But right now fishing for old photos in random directories. Is what I want to do. Then easily work with them (tag, identify; share - I do not know)
I think it is that simple right? Have DIGI "Index" C & D drive. Then look for the scan for people button? Then somehow delete the thousands and thousands of photos digi threw into a pile or database? Is there a smarter way? I want to do a "full sweep" for people/faces. Leave no one behind.
