If you are worried about the server load, but can afford to take your
time, then just set server_wait_time to say 5 or 10 (seconds) That
will allow your server to 'breathe' a little between requests, and avoid
the indexing affecting other users. Are you indexing on- or off-line?

Ive got it working! With thumbnails too thanks to the htdig
"From: Tony Crockford <tonyc@...>=20
search results with thumbnail images.
The load seems like it might be serious if many images exist but
I'll only index it once in a while.
Turns out verio had htdig as an add on option through the
control panel ver 3.1.6, with the shared hosting 2000 package.
Looks like if I want finer control for searching individual
parameters I could modify the php output as "parameter: data" instead of
its current table based structure. That way when it is indexed ill be
able to search for "Make: Canon" and "Exposure Mode: Auto exposure". Or
will htdig let me "quote" and "and" like google?
A big thanks to Tony, htdig and pjmt!

Using The PHP JPEG Metadata Toolkit
http://www.ozhiker.com/electronics/pjmt/ and htdig with the start_url
attribute and urls that resolve to
est.jpg many jpgs, will the load on my server be extreme? Is it possible
to pipe the php to htdig as an external parser without as much load? Can
the returned wordlist and index be searched or diefined into multiple
fields. For instance can I modify the htsearch form to include multiple
fields and search for all pictures taken with camera: canon and shutter
speed: 1/60 ? I have linux and some php/xml skills, if any of this is
possible could someone give me some guidance on where to start?
