Photo Management Software?

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I’m looking for Photo Management Software to organize all images that I have. Could anyone recommend PMS that supports the Affinity Photo 2 extensions as well the ordinary ones (.jpg .gif .heic etc) and Dropbox cloud storage. I don’t want subscription-based software.

Many thanks!

You could try XnViewMP.

Graphic Converter has some powerful digital asset management features such as the Browser which works with your existing file structure and has extensive metadata tools (for instance, ExifTool is built in), convert and modify, powerful batch processing, renaming tools, face recognition, ratings, labels and tags, non-destructive editing in Cocooner, basic RAW editing, cataloging to print or html, etc etc. It took me a few days just to go through the multiple preference options (which fortunately can be exported to a reloadable file).

The trial is not time-limited and is fully functioning. MacOS only. It's still under active development by Thorsten Lemke who originally released it in 1992!

My vote (as always) goes to Photo Supreme ( https://www.idimager.com/home ). Available for Mac and Windows. Single user or MultiUser Server. Really, really powerful but with a far more straightforward UI than iMatch. (Also, iMatch is highly regarded but not available on a Mac.) The best, and probably easiest, keywording that I've ever tried. It's not cheap, but you often get what you pay for.
