Intro:
I've been collecting pictures over the internet. Mostly wallpapers, but all sorts of artsy stuff too.
I made a php-program to store metadata in mysql db, but i'm not actively developing that program anymore. However i'll share my research with you.

Problem:
- (A) Thousands of images are hard to sort correctly.
- (B) Several duplicates (100%-match, )

Solution:
- (A) Metadata

Advantages of a database
- The images could be searched really fast, by the user made tags and by the Imagedata (dimensions, size).
- New images could be matched against the database entrys [auto-delete for identical files, collections from similar (resizes, watermarks, etc) ]

That's the basic idea. It should be optional as many users doesn't have as massive collection (no need for a library), but I'd like to be able to search my pictures like i search my music.

    I would like to add to this request. I would love to see this database idea implemented. I know I would love to be able to filter out duplicate pics.

    However the main use I would use it for. Is to combine various pic sets for the slideshow. Currently under Geeqie you can use the slideshow on only the current directory. I'd like to be able to custom pic the pictures in the slideshow.
