Windows 7: Photo organizing on network with tags

Photo organizing on network with tags

I work with a company that has thousands of images in different network folders. We want to find a way to easily search for images using tags, but in a way that searches in all drives at once and without taking forever. I've tried using the folder's tag system but it takes about 10 minutes to search in one drive, to search in all of them at the same time seems like would take over 30 minutes.

We use Lightroom for photo editing and exporting for web, etc. But we cannot have someone in a different computer search the catalog through the network.

Is there some any software/plug-in that would search for tags without having to import the files into it and/or disrupting the network folders that are already set up?

Welcome to the forum. My only thought is to use Google photos or Google picasa you can upload all photos to Google FREE I have 75,000 and that can search in seconds and then download the photo it also puts things in date order so you can goto a specific date picasais their okd program and that can scan all photos and search locally

Photo Tags showing only in Library and not in the original folder
I was under the impression that an entry in the Photo library was a "pointer" to the original file in its folder. Why then does a tag added in the "Pictures library" not show in the file in its original folder. I thought that the advantage of tagging was that the tag went with the photo when...
