Re: Software suggestion(s) for culling through massive amount of photos

If you're already using LR for your new photos, why not use that for culling the old stuff too?

Make a new catalog if you don't want your main catalog to include the old photos, then import everything (make sure to select "Add" instead of "Copy" or "Move" in the import dialog, so LR leaves the pictures where they are on the disk). LR has a duplicate-detection function (not sure how effective it is), so that you should take care of the duplicates. Afterwards just go through the list with "X" (reject) and "P" (pick). When done, delete all rejected photos.
