;;; Commentary:

;;  About the name: tumme means thumb in Swedish. Google did not give
;; me any hits for "tumme.el" so I thought it would be safe to use.
;;  I needed a program to browse, organize and tag my pictures. I
;; got tired of the old gallery program I used as it did not allow
;; multi-file operations easily. Also, it put things out of my
;; control. Programs that did allow multi-file operations did not do
;; what I wanted it to.
;;  So, I got the idea to use the wonderful functionality of emacs and
;; `dired' to do it. It would allow me to do almost anything I wanted,
;; which is basically just to browse all my pictures in an easy way,
;; letting me manipulate and tag them in various ways. `dired' already
;; provide all the file handling and navigation facilities; I only
;; needed to add some functions to display the images.
;;  I briefly tried out thumbs.el, and although it seemed more
;; powerful than this package, it did not work the way I wanted to. It
;; was too slow to created thumbnails of all files in a directory (I
;; currently keep all my 2000+ images in the same directory) and
;; browsing the thumbnail buffer was slow too. tumme.el will not
;; create thumbnails until they are needed and the browsing is done
;; quickly and easily in dired. I copied a great deal of ideas and
;; code from there though... :)
;;  `tumme' stores the thumbnail files in `tumme-dir' using the file
;; name format ORIGNAME.thumb.ORIGEXT. For example
;; ~/.tumme/myimage01.thumb.jpg and the "database" is for now just a
;; plain text file with the following format:
;; file-name-non-directory;tag1;tag2;tag3;...;tagn

;;; Feedback

;; Feedback is welcome.

;;; Prerequisites:

;; * The convert program from the ImageMagick package

;;; Usage:

;; First, do M-x tumme-dired-folder RET. This will setup a useful
;; window- and buffer-configuration for you.
;; Next, do M-x tumme-setup-dired-keybindings RET, which will set up
;; keybindings in dired mode that works quite well.

;;; History:

;; Version 0.1, 2005-04-16

;; * First release, only browsing support for now.

;; Version 0.2, 2005-04-21

;; * Changed calls to dired-filename-at-point to dired-get-filename

;; Version 0.3, 2005-04-25

;;   Quite a lot of changes:

;; * Added basic image tagging support. No commands that make use of
;;   it yet.

;; * Added text properties for the thumbnail images to be able to
;;   track where they came from originally. Used in `tumme-mode'.

;; * Added `tumme-mode' to be used when navigating the thumbnail
;;   buffer.  Currently, there are commands to mark, unmark, flag and
;;   jump to the original file in associated dired buffer.

;; * When moving around in the thumbnail buffer (in `tumme-mode'), the
;;   user can turn on tracking of the movements and let them be
;;   mirrored in the associated dired buffer.

;; * In this version I have been looking at some ideas in thumbs.el,
;;   for example the image margin and relief and the `thumbs-mode'
;;   which I copied and made the `tumme-mode' from.

;;; Bugs:

;; I'm not sure if I really consider this a bug, but in order to work
;; well, `tumme' require that all your images have unique names. The
;; reason is the way thumbnail file names are generated. I will
;; probably not fix this problem as my images all have unique names.

;;; Todo:

;; - Commands to open the images in full size, either in an emacs
;; buffer or external program, or both.
;; - Find some way of toggling on and off really nice keybindings (for
;; example, using C-n or <down> instead of C-S-n) to the interactive
;; functions.
;; - Functionality to display the various tags.
;; - Command to refresh thumbnail images. For now, you have to delete
;; the old files manually.
;; - Commands to create simple HTML-albums, where the images will be
;; browsable per tag, date file name etc.
;; - Some sort of EXIF support using an external EXIF tool.
;; - Rewrite `tumme-modify-mark-on-thumb-original-file' to be less
;; ugly and more stable.
;; - In some way keep track of buffers and windows and stuff so that
;; it works as the user expects.
;; - Functionality to use tags for marking files in dired buffer.
;; - Fix other ugly things.
