Media Categories? (3 posts)

    I'd like to see a more robust media area for WordPress. Specifically, I'd like to be able to categorize my images and then view my media library by category. For instance, rather than having hundreds of cat photos to wade through, it would be nice to label a photo as Cats/Black/Six-Toed.

    Any chance something like this could make its way into a future release?

    You can create specific categories like you would a post. Then on the post just add the image for each image, and post it as a post.

    or you can create a new post and add all of the photos that you want inside that 'category' and name the post as the category name.

    The easiest way to do this would be to download a nice photo gallery plugin :D

    I found a very nice plugin called "Media Tags" which allows me to tag individual items. This way, I can search for all of my Cornell University images under the "CU" tag, for instance. The one drawback is that tags are shared in WordPress, meaning I cannot have the same tag for articles and photos.
