Would you like PicaJet to be able to organize files other than images?
Yes, it would be a nice addition to the photo organizer.

Yes, but such a function should be a seperate program.

My boss is a Flickr junkie, so I showed him PicaJet. He was impressed, but surprised me by asking if PJ produces a product with the same organizational interface but for files in general. That is, he'd like something that has the PJ GUI and category hierarchy but with the capability to organize *any* files, not just images.

Obviously random files would not be able to take advantage of all the image-centric features in PJ. In particular, they'd have generic icons (like one would see in a windows folder), and I can't think of a way to write the meta data back to the file (since most file types don't have anything like EXIF or IPTC). However, other people might find a PJ-like program useful for organizing files in general on their computer.

I'd envisage an additional filter (in the Locate By tab?) that would allow filtering by file type (using MIME types?). Probably also would need a filter in importing (either manually or watched folders) that would allow users to specify import for only images ("standard" PJ behavior), all files, or maybe a choice of file types.

For other users, does this sound useful (poll below)? For the PJ team, is this something of interest, and how hard would it be to implement?

Charles, thank you for the proposal, but there are many file organizing programs related to file/folders management. PicaJet target audience - digital camera owners, photographs... so it will be better for our customers if we will focus on the major user needs.
