Tagging software for mixed data

I'm looking for recommendations for tagging software that will let me streamline my file system and quickly search through it. I'm running Windows 7 and have about a terabyte of images, mp3s, text files, and odds and ends that I'd like to go through. Ideally I'm looking for an offline solution that doesn't store the tag data in the filename. I don't want to have to use multiple different programs and I don't want to have to do this again from scratch in a few years.

Is there a way to let my family (& only them) tag family photos online?

After my Grandma died recently, I went to her house and scanned every family photo she was in so everyone in the family could have a digital copy. There are a lot of people I can't identify in these pictures. I'm wondering if there's a way I could put the whole folder of them online in a password-protected or invite-only place that lets family members tag the pictures so anyone who knows who these people are can identify them. I don't want to put them online somewhere where just anyone could see them.

Moving photos from Flickr before it is shuttered

I have accumulated - and curated - around 5K photos on Flickr. Quite a few of these are embedded/pulled into various places (blogpost example). In case Flickr does go under, I'm looking for quick/non-teccie solutions for moving the entire bunch of photos and also for easily updating all of those places where a bit of code pulls in the picture from Flickr.

Fussy person seeks labeling solution for tiny physical objects

I carry around a lot of small expensive/annoying-to-replace objects, like my phone, tablet, battery packs, earbuds, eyeglasses and wallet. I'd love your help in figuring out how to label them all neatly, permanently and unobtrusively. Difficulty level: I am absurdly fussy and precise, including about aesthetics. [more inside]

Ideas for tag cloud analysis

I have 600 images tagged with keywords. In addition to nice pictures of tag clouds and frequency calculations, what sort of smart, insightful analysis can I do with these data that could reveal relationships between the tags and other (more formal) data attached to the images? Any advice on software tools (Windows, preferably FOSS) would be appreciated. I have some training in statistics and I have actually done textual statistics before but only briefly so I'm not familiar with the current tools and methods.

Does anybody ELSE manufacture an RFID tag with this spec?

I am looking for a very small, passive UHF RFID tag that works when affixed to containers of liquids. I have spent a long time carefully researching my requirements and I am certain that: - it has to be UHF, not HF and not NFC. - it has to be passive. - it has to be small (the other ones I've found are 14-20cm long which is completely unfit for my purpose). - it HAS to be functional when affixed to containers of liquids. I found a tag with the perfect spec: the Avery Dennison AD-110m5. Now all I have to do is get them to sell it to me. THIS IS THE HARD PART. [more inside]

Searchable image database service

I'm looking for a service that will allow a group of people to upload and tag images to a single album, and then enable anyone in that group to search *in that album only* for a given tag and see all of the images that match. Bonus points if I can browse by tag.

Best practices in organizing a digital, image-based inspiration file

As an aspiring artist, I've recently acquired a habit of saving to Dropbox every image I find particularly inspiring or useful as an artistic reference. This is fun and motivating, except I'm realizing that my Finder-based 'folder > subfolder' organizational structure is doing a poor job of keeping up with my needs. I'm looking for software recommendations (Mac OS X) or general tips re: sorting a frequently-accessed image collection that will eventually number into the thousands. The catch: the system needs to sync with an iPhone/iPad. [more inside]

Looking for software for windows to tag movies and tv shows media files for itunes.

I had been using a mac to keep my media files and had been using "Ripit" to rip my DVD's and "identify" to tag the resulting files and put into itunes to watch on Apple TV. Due to file space I have moved to a PC running Windows 7 to do this. And while I have found software to rip the DVD's I cannot find software to add the tags such as "synopsis", "cover art", and "episode details"? You suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Me-Fi
