File Management

I'm in need of software that will handle file managment of standard graphics files -- .jpg, .gif, etc. -- photoshop .psd files, too, if possible but not necessary.  All I need is something that will display thumbnails and fullsize of all the files in a directory, and allow me to open, move, delete, etc.  I do not need (nor want) any sort of photo editing capability.  Just file management.  Any suggestions of what to use (or avoid)?

weed --
i took a look at iView's site.  This looks great -- just what I need.  Unfortunately, I forgot to mention I need this for the PC, not Mac.  And it doesn't look like they have a PC version as of yet (site says a PC version is in development).  Any other suggestions for those of us who are bound by the dark side?

Nope. Unless you want to subject yourself to Microsoft's little photo catalog app or Extensis' Portfolio which is kinda expensive.

XP's explorer just cant handle large files or lots of them. Nor will it handle PSD, PDF, AI, etc.

There are a million image-preview programs, I'm not the biggest fan of MS' previewer in XP, but in most cases it does a fine job. The exceptions would be 'strange' formats and huge files (1mb+ jpeg for instance). If you don't have a new version of Windows or don't want to use MS programs, take a look at ACDSee. It is one of the msot popular image viewing programs, you can download it from here:

Check Cumulus -- www.canto.com
Has PC and Mac versions, and if you don't need all the enterprise features it's not too expensive.

Until there's a PC version of iView Media Pro, ACDSee will work for me.  XP isn't sufficient.  Cumulus didn't impress me (but thanks for the suggestion).
