Software to create photo 'library'

  maltose 11:59 01 Oct 2008

I want to 'catalogue' my many photos and create a sortable index, in which, with a single click on a selected photo, I will be able to see that photo. Is there softwate to do this, can XL do it?

Thank you VoG™ for a very prompt reply. I have revisited Picasa and am not sure it is what I want. Indeed its own help forum has some members asking for better 'indexing'. I guess I am looking for a freebe software like ACD.

Have you tried "Faststone Image Viewer" - click here

thank you iambeavis. My normal photo software is either Photolab Express or Serif Photoplus niether they nor I, suspect, fasttone image viewer, appear to do what I want. Perhaps I should be more specific. I want to 'tag' each photo with five fields - date, place, category, sub group and title. I want to be able to sort the records by any of these fields, select the appropriate photo record(displayed in text line)click on it and then see the photo. Am I asking too much?

"XnView"? - click here

"Exifer" - click here

"PhotoMe" - click here

Perhaps one of these will do what you require.

Hey this looks hopeful. Exifer's own site talks the language. I have to 'go out' now but will investigate further this pm. Thanks iambeavis

The screenshots for "PhotoMe" look as though it may be what you're looking for.

And another one "PhoA" which looks promising - click here

Sorted! I can use XL to make up the data base and add insert hyperlink as one of the fields. Thanks to you both.
