Great article as usual, but maybe I can add something here.
(1) where's the "in-law removal plugin" ? :-)
(2) gqview + kimdaba (hot keys to GIMP from gqview when needed) is what I use. The duplicate search in gqview is really something!
(3) kimdaba: read on...
KimDaBa's best feature is the drill down/incremental search. Lets just use the 3 default categories (keywords, location, person), although you can add your own categories and all the stuff below still applies.
Say I click on the keyword link, which shows me a choice of all the possible "keywords" there are in the system. I click on one of those keywords (say, "parties"), then the whole view changes to show only the subset of the photos that have that keyword. Now click on locations, say, and then on one particular location (say "Wynkoop") and you've subsetted it further. You get the idea...
If that's not good enough, there's a fairly neat search dialog with AND and OR searches (within each category).
Makes searching REALLY fast and easy, but there's no way you could have annotated 3000 photographs in one afternoon to actually get the benefit of this, so I can't honestly blame you or feel upset that you didn't like it.
