ALL Tags in Picture Views

Post by ThyMaster » Mon Jan 07, 2008 8:58 am

Since the Kodak Picture Frames are not capable to show files AND folders in in one view there is a strong disadvantage the way TV handles tags:

Let's say 50 pictures have the tag "Home", and 20 out of them have the additional tag "Kitchen".
TV will allow to navigate through these tags by the following structure:

Code: Select all

Tags
 |
 |- Home
 |    |
 |    |- Kitchen -- Pic31
 |    |          |- Pic32
 |    |          |...
 |    |          |- Pic50
 |    |- Pic01
 |    |- Pic02
 |    |...
 |    |- Pic30
Because of this structure the Kodak cannot show/access Pic01 to Pic30.
I know this is an issue with the Kodak but since it is listed as supported device I think it should be taken in consideration.

My suggestion is to add the - ALL - tag to every folder (like its already done with Music and Videos), so one can chose - ALL - in the mentioned Home folder and will see just plain all pictures (in the above case Pic01 to Pic50)

Code: Select all
