I like what Picture Project offers: the ability to tag images with keywords; the tag mark and protect functions; the search filters, and the basic photo editing tools for when a minor tweak is all that's required.
It is rather clunky though, and slow when swapping between View and Edit functions, so something with a bit more oomph when handling files would be a blessing.
I've no idea how many photographs I have. At a guess, possibly somewhere between 4-8,000, maybe more (can't bring myself to consign images to the trash!).
Google Picasa looks good. I have been considering switching to it myself.
I currently use Digikam. I would recommend it, but I am pretty sure the Mac versions is either beta or a pain to install.
I still don't have anything I really like. :) I'm mostly back to Bridge at this point.
It sounds like for what you're looking for, you should consider Lightroom. Lightroom is a good program, it just doesn't make sense in my workflow.
Whats wrong with iPhoto?
It's just personal preference. I used it for a while four or five years ago and didn't like it. I'm sure it's a different beast nowadays, but I'd rather use something else.
Google's Picasa isn't available for Mac, as far as I can see.
Adobe Bridge looks interesting though, and I have that installed already, so I'll have a play around with it and see what it has to offer.
Thanks for the suggestions.
