This is for all of us that don't want a advanced gallery plugin, but rather a simple, built in, and light weight categorization that makes choosing (browsing/searchin for) an image that much easier.
I would like to see some sort of categorization of images, so when I upload an image I could choose from an already existing category or just type in the category name, and voila the image has been categorized.
Image categories should of course also support sub categories much like ordinary categories.
This built in categorization could also be used for plugin developers to "hook on to" when building a gallery plugin.
The main thing is to keep it simple and let plugin developers do the extension of the categories like add rating, comments and so on.
Just a very simple, and easy to implement, categorization.
Just a thought...
