    Best Computer Photograph Image Management Program?

    Best Computer Photograph Image Management Program? I have thousands of positives and negatives. I am in the process of Drum Scanning the best in high resolution. The balance will be scanned in lower resolution Original scans stored on CD. Most of my work is 6x7cm velvia slides. I also do 4x5 inch and 8x10 inch. I am manipulating them in Photoshop 6. I am using a Pentium 4 computer. I have 2x60 gig hard drives. I need some advice from the Experts. Which program can you recommend? Best Regards, Snowy Smith, South Africa.

    Snowy,

    What do you mean by image management program? if you are talkingaboutsimply cataloging them for archives then iView should work fine.

    If you are wanting to build a searchable catalog of stock photography and be able to use that information and searchable catalog to track stock photo usage and sales, print captions, and build a database of clients as well then the Hindsight, ltd. InView and StockViewsoftware is the best I have found. iuse the Mac OS version but the Windows version is equally robust. Hindsight is probably now one of the most established compaines in this field. Excellent product support viaphone ande-mail and also they maintain active user (and tech support) forums on line. many commercial photographers, stock agencies and libraries rely on their product .These guys started as photographers and think like (very smart) photographers.

    There's a good review/summary of 4 different products on NPN (naturephotographers.net) this month.

    Don't even think twice: Cumulus. Check out http://www.canto.com -- it's great, great stuff.

    Cumulus is a very good product for just organizing, but I did think twice and went with InView/StockView , primarily for the ability to integrate image searches with client contacts and submission tracking, as well as the searchable database & cross reference features.
