Why is it so hard to find a decent image organizer?

<< < (6/65) > >>

Portfolio supports everything under the sun (well, not quite), has advanced handling of metadata, searches are very, very fast. It's designed for professionals that work with thousands of images. You really have to explore the program to see everything it can do.

MrCrispy, you may want to take a look at the "Master Keyword List" window to do what you want. You can also use Smart Galleries to do the filtering, albeit it's not as quick as you want it.

Check out Smart Pix Manager.  It costs $39.50 US.

I use it and like the way I can index my pictures on multiple names.

A couple of the tools mentioned seems to refer to managing image files.

Personally I prefer and use Thumbsplus 7.

Does anyone know of a good organizer for flash files ie .swf so that you can view it and organize and add comments to it so they can be found when you want it.

Thumbsplus has no capabilities to view flash files but it has very good viewers for a lot of graphics format.

I didn't see anyone mention Photo Collector.  I haven't tried it but it seems to have a somewhat different approach to managing photos than the norm, so it might be worth a look.  I don't know if it does tags or not, I'm assuming it does, or has something similar.

I found a new program - FotoAlbum Pro from

It lacks some of the more power user features but ts very fast and handles metadata and queries very nicely. I emailed the developers with some suggestions and received a prompt reply which is a good sign.
