Hi Angelique

(this is a repeat of the answer I just sent you which was off the list)

You should use the GLI (Librarian Interface) to build your collection.
You can start this by choosing it from the Greenstone menu in the Start
This allows you to add documents (in your case images) into a collection,
and assign metadata to them.
You will need to choose a metadata set for your collection, eg Dublin
Core, and then you can assign eg dc.Title and dc.Subject etc. to your

To get searching on these fields, you will need to go to the Design pane,
choose search indexes, and create indexes on the metadata you have added.

To get browsing by these metadata fields, you can add classifiers in the
Browsing classifiers section of the design pane.

Then build your collection.
The GLI has a help menu and there is information about it in the
Greenstone User Guide.
