Any suggestions for a good phoro cataloging software for digital photos?

I can't get zoombrowser (bundled with canon cameras) to work any more. I am looking for a fast, easy digital photo cataloging software. Any suggestions?

Is iphoto any good?
How about imatch?
Thanks.

I don't know how good it is, I just barely looked at it, but Nero has something called PhotoShow Express. I installed it while doing the latest Nero updates.

You could probably get a trial.

iPhoto is great, but of course it's Mac-only.

On the PC side, I vote for Picasa2 from Google. Great program, very easy to use. I don't think you'll find anything better for free (or paid, for that matter.)

I'll picasa a try. I knew I had read about that somewhere here on the forums but couldn't remember what it was called and a search for photo cataloging didn't turn anything up.

Yeah, IMHO Picassa is the best free program. If you don't mind spending a little cash, Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 is fantastic. It's 2 programs in 1: an organizer and an editor. The editor is the standard Photoshop Elements program. The organizer is what used to be called Photoshop Album. It's what I use, and I love it.

I've been using SuperJPG for years, but it is no longer in development. I loved it since it kept the thumbnail databases as individual files in each folder, instaed of one single data base, which would become huge if you had a lot of pics. This system also worked great when tranporting burned photo CD's with the thumbs databases in it. ACDsee was great until the past few versions when they decided to bloat it up as an all-in-one file opener.

Firehand Ember is another good one, though the non-freeware version is ridiculously expensive.

i have tried both picasa2 and adobe photoshop elements 3 and have found picasa2 easier to use and feels "faster".

I downloaded picassa but haven't installed it yet. So, no opinion there.

ACDSee just released a new version which may be worth checking out.
