There is one headache PR and communications departments have suffered with since the beginning of modern communications -- classification of photos. So, it was interesting to see the news from Kodak that potentially offers an easy and fast classification system . Now if there was a way for digital fingerprint databasing of images that went along with this... By this, I mean a scheme of sampling zones on a photo like whorls of a fingerprint and classifying the digital sequence of the zones to achieve a unique signature of pixel colors. My guess is that Kodak is far along in this. Ultimately, a PR department should be able to dump its entire archive into a digital database and have it automatically classified for future use. Then, at last, the headache will go away.
