GeneralAn unusual use for MS OneNote? PinPopular

Last year I scanned my roughly 2000 CD covers so I could catalogue them using a photo management system. I went for digiKam as it supported hierarchies of keywords - composer, genre, forces etc. - but I have now become frustrated, as the thumbnails are a fixed size, OK for a medium resolution screen, but too small on a high res screen, and too large on low res.

Enter OneNote, courtesy of my Office 2010 Professional Plus! Unsure | :~ 2010? A tightwad? Moi? Wink | ;)

The CDs are organized in drawers, ranks and position in rank. CD 2F23-4 would be the second drawer, sixth rank, position 23 and is a four-disk set. With a notebook for each major genre - classical, jazz, folk etc. - a section for each rank, and a page for each CD the process is so simple it is unreal. Set up all the genres and sections you need, then in each section drag & drop each JPEG onto a new page, right-click and select 'Make text in image searchable' and job done. You can search at any level from all open notebooks down to a single page. The 'hits' are listed in page order on the right of the screen to click through. The filename of each JPEG is it's location, which I copy across as the OneNote page name.

The beauty of the system versus digiKam is that images may be automatically or manually sized and the OCR means you don't need keywords. Also, in the old system I only keyworded the principal performance, and so if some Mozart piece was used as a CD filler after, say, a Beethoven work, it was unlocatable. No more!

I have never touched OneNote before, but its adaptability is remarkable. Colour me impressed! Cool | :cool:
