!! *Memory Issues
Note that there seems to be a serious memory leak in the "Windows API Codepack for .NET" (what the plugin uses to interact with the Windows shell) that really manifests itself with the new calendar selection feature that I just added in v1.1. You may notice NPVR consuming a lot of memory after using this plugin for a while forcing you to restart NPVR. Unfortunately, there hasn't been a release of the Windows API Code Pack in 2 years so I don't think this will be fixed by Microsoft and therefore I won't be able to fix it in the plugin.

!! Downloading and Installing
The latest version of the {$Name} plugin is v1.0.

Download:{$Name}.zip

!! Requirements/Metadata
The Windows 7 libraries/shell are utilized (Vista might work also but I'm not able to test). If your favorite image management program writes keywords and ratings to the files themselves as IPTC or XMP data then you should be able to see them via the plugin. I currently use Windows Live Photo Gallery which even writes metadata (including keywords) to some video file types. Nested keywords are handled with the convention of a forward slash ('/') separating the levels.

!! Configuration
#Unzip the attached file to your [[QuickStart/InstalledParts|NextPVR data directory]].
#Start NPVR, right-click, and select 'Settings'.
#Choose 'Plugins' on the left and enable/check 'PhotoFilter' in the list.
#Choose '- PhotoFilter' on the left and click 'Manage Pictures Library...'.
#Make sure all your Photos directories are added to the Windows Library (do likewise for Videos if necessary).
#Choose Ok, restart NPVR, and choose PhotoFilter in the main menu.
#Create a Filter by selecting some Keywords, Dates, and/or Ratings to view.
