Is there an image mgmt program that does all this?
Nov 3, 2004

I have been testing different programs, and so far not one has all the features I want.

iMatch comes the closest but lacks one key piece - the ability to select multiple categories at once (easily).

I want to :
Keep track of all images on my HD or archived to CD/DVD.

Make contact sheets that can easily include folder path in the header both to print and save to HD/DVD.

Keep track of multiple versions of the same image easily: original, working, and final (with final further divided by web, 4x6, 5x6, 8x10, etc.).
Allow me to organize my files by category for easy searching.
Handle all image file types.

Basically what I want is iMatch with ACDSee's multi category selection ability.

IE - I want to find all "Automotive" images that are "Original", or all "Automotive" images that are "Final.4x6", etc. Or I want to find all "Original" images that include "John" and "Bill".

So far, I have tried thumbs+, ACDSee, and iMatch. My images are just getting to the point where they are overwhelming me, and so far I am not happy with my options. Any other suggestions?
