Hydrus Network Description

In case you have accumulated hundreds of gigabytes of pictures over time, then there is a good chance that you are looking for a solution and a strategy that would enable you to manage such an impressive collection.

Hydrus Network is a platform that allows you to manage and organize large collections of media you have gathered in time in an internal database using tags that you can share via the custom servers you are running.

It comes with two tools, yet you mainly use the client

First off, you should know that the utility includes a server that needs to be connected and running before you can start the client for the first time. While you can see a blank page when you first start the client, you can populate it immediately by dragging and dropping a photo directory on the dedicated panel to import them and start managing.

The idea behind the program is to enable you to use tags instead of folders, a feature that enables you to quickly search for and identify the images that include that exact match and similar entries. You can add and edit tags as well as include ratings for the files you organize by accessing the dedicated functions from the context menu.

On a side note, the program allows you to customize the viewing mode for the photos you tag with a certain keyword or rating.

Comes with several advanced users features

It is worth mentioning that the application includes a function that performs automatic indexing and tag updates that are particularly designed for users who did not grasp the idea behind the application yet.

On the other hand, the utility enables you to set up your own server, in case you intend to create multiple accounts that you are going to manage. In addition, the application comes with several advanced functions that could make your life easier. Among the options that enter this category, you can count tag censorship, importing and tagging at the same time or tag archiving, just to name a few.

An advanced tool for mass image tagging

Despite the fact that it includes numerous features that could help you go through years of pictures and organize them for easier access, Hydrus Network mainly addresses advanced users.

Then again, if you are a beginner who requires a tool for photo management and tagging, then you should keep in mind that the app includes comprehensive documentation online to get you started.
