Photographer's Notebook is an app to store and manage metadata of analog photos. It is meant to replace the usual paper-based notebooks photographers use to document camera settings in analog photography.
Photographers' Notebook was developed as a student project at the chair of Information Systems and New Media at the University of Siegen. The app is currently a beta version and not under active development. In case of bugs you can post a report in the issue tracker.
Photographer's Notebook is licensed under the Apache 2.0 license.
How to get it
To get the app, you have several possibilities:
- Clone or download this repository and build the app on your own computer (requires Android Studio or Eclipse with Android SDK)
- Install the app via the Google Play store (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=unisiegen.photographers.activity)
- Install the app via the F-Droid repository (https://f-droid.org/repository/browse/?fdfilter=photographers&fdid=unisiegen.photographers.activity)
- Download the .apk from this site and install it manually on your device (see Downloads)
- Define individual sets of photo gear
- Manage data of different films in different cameras in parallel
- HOLO styled UI
- Add geolocations to your pictures (experimental)
- Export film and photo data to XML
For the further processing of exported data, a user has been so nice to write a shell script that extracts meta data from the exported xml files and attaches it as EXIF data to image files.
The script and some information on how to get it to work can be found here: https://gist.github.com/dmpop/55ecb0d67e21016f36e0
Works on Linux and Windows (with Git BASH, xmlstarlet and exiftool), and possibly also on Macs.
