    Hi,

    I'm looking for a digital photo organiser program.
    Requirement is to enter keywords, and to retrieve a set of photos with a
    desired keyword.
    And, preferrably freeware.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanx.

    It might be worth digging into the recommendations at
    www.pricelessware.org -- there appear to be a number of image
    organisers in the "Graphics" section in there (although I'm not sure if
    they'll do what you need).

    (FWIW, all the programs on www.pricelessware.org are real freeware, and
    very solidly tested, as they win there spot there from an annual open
    voting thing on alt.comp.freeware.)

    I do not want to resort my pictures in to a different filing system so on a
    windows I just use:
    Windows explorer-tools-find-files to search for *keyword*.jpg or sometimes
    *keyword*.* if not jpg. The list provided can then be easily viewed using
    irfanview.
    Cheap and basic but it works for my needs.

    I looked at Jasc Photo Album and dont think it even compares to Adobe
    Photo Album
    http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshopalbum/main.html

    Download the trial to see if you like it.
    It has a better organizer than key words.. what you do is create tags
    with category names. Then you just select either one or all the photos
    you want to categorize under your new tag name, then drag the tag to the
    photos. I also made names like Season-Summer, Season-Spring,
    Season-Fall etc.. that way I can search for season photos.

    It also has a timeline across the top that shows you a graphic bar by
    year and each tick mark is a month. Shows the amount of photos you have
    with those date timeframes. All you do is click a month within a year
    and all the photos with those creation date time stamps will come up as
    thumbnails.
    I just love it.. I have tried so many, and so far this seems to be the
    best I have seen, and the easiest. If you move photos to another
    folder, it allows you to update the links. Some programs dont do that
    easily.. or at all.
    Let me know what you think.

    PS: No, I dont work for Adobe LOL
