Help finding a good photo album software.
Posted on 2007-07-30
I am looking for a good photo album software for my Windows PC. I have about 12,000 photos that I would like to sort better than the current photo system is. As much as I hate Apple, I do like the sorting options in iTunes - something like it for photos would be cool.
Here is what I am looking for in particular.
My images are all JPG - something that is not bloated and works fast.
Something that can handle 100,000+ pictures without bogging down too badly.
I would like to name all the people that are in a given picture and then type in a person's name and have a listing of all the photos they are in.
I would like to do the same with dates and locations, etc.
I would like to categorize pictures by type - ie Nature, Indoor, Winter, etc.
I would like to categorize pictures by primary (and maybe secondary) color - so if there is a ton of red color - I want the software to either let me put that in as a searchable variable, or better yet pick it out on its own.
I would like to rate photos too - I keep EVERYTHING but some pictures are obviously better than others so I would like to categorize them by quality.
Obviously free would be nice, but something for under $50 would be OK too.
