;;; 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. `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.
;;  `tumme' stores the thumbnail files in `tumme-dir' using the file
;; name format ORIGNAME.thumb.ORIGEXT. For example
;; ~/.tumme/myimage01.thumb.jpg.

;;; Feedback

;; Feedback is welcome, especially now when this is so fresh.

;;; 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.
;; The following keybindings works quite well, try them out and you
;; will get a feel for how the package works:
;; (define-key dired-mode-map (kbd "C-S-n") 'tumme-next-line-and-display)
;; (define-key dired-mode-map (kbd "C-S-p") 'tumme-previous-line-and-display)
;; (define-key dired-mode-map (kbd "C-S-<return>") 'tumme-display-thumbs)

;;; History:

;; Version 0.1, 2005-04-16
;; * First release, only browsing support for now.

;;; 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 the thumbnail file name is generated. I will
;; probably not fix this problem as my images all have unique names.

;;; Todo:

;; - Add tagging capabilities. My plan is to use a simple text file as
;; a database and just add the tag information semi-colon separated
;; and appended to the file name. That would allow using things like
;; `occur', `flush-lines' and `keep-lines'.
;; - 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 varius tags next to the picture.
;; - 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.
