Photographers: Which photo manager/viewer do you use? - Page 2

post #16 of 45
I currently use Lightroom. It's nice for creating catalogs of images, and the editing is pretty fast, especially if you don't need to use Photoshop all the time.

I use the combo of Nikon's ViewNX for viewing/selecting, and CaptureNX for editing. I love that it's very easy to learn and just uses your folder structure.

Bridge. Works with the raws from Dads D300 and it's nice to use.

Adobe Lightroom or Bridge depending on the format, Lightroom for RAW.

I use the freeware XnView. Basic but does the job. I don't work with photos and images as much as I used to. Have to say I dislike applications that use tags and hide the actual file from you. I much prefer file tree applications and using folders.

For image catalogueing and browsing there's no better than ACDSee Pro 2.5. For editing I use PS CS3. What else?

Wow, I totally forgot about this thread for a couple of days. Thanks for all the insight!

I don't mind paying for good software, as long as it achieves what I need.

I think that Digikam is a fantastic program. Most basic adjustments needed, a great batch-processing mode, a great noise-remover algorithm, and perfectly free.

Another vote for lightroom from me.

I have tried iMatch but found the interface too clunky (that was a while ago though) and a little over the top for what I needed.

Lightroom is great and is getting better with every release.

Good luck.

I agree that iMatch's interface isn't the best but the price is right ($65) and it has a huge feature set.

Adobe Bridge + CS4

I've used Lightroom 2 and didn't care for it too much. Guess I've just become to set in my ways.

Converted from iPhoto to Aperture this weekend, and I am very pleased so far.

Surprised at the number of people suggesting Lightroom. It's an awesome app for many things, but not IMO as a library application or photo manager. For what you have described I would go with Bridge. If you want basic RAW editing tools, batch processing and a managed library, Lightroom might be the way to go. My main gripe with Lightroom is the proprietary way in which it manages files and creates the library (sort of like the iTunes database).

I'm surprised nobody has seconded photo mechanic, it wipes the floor with bridge imho.. it's really unbelievably fast.

Apple Aperture in conjunction with Adobe Photoshop on Mac OS X. If youre on Windows use Lightroom and Photoshop.
