Re: Lightroom alternative and keep keywords

Exposure has an import tool for getting all metadata from your Lightroom catalouge

It is a very useful alternative to Ligthroom, has similar interface and controls, and most of the editing features, while using the photos directly on the drive to avoid catalouging

It makes sidecars that will stay with the photos, so you can basically start tagging and editing right away, and organize harddrive folders both inside or outside Exposure, which is smart enough to move the sidecars when you drag photos

There is no support for video, nor hdr merge or panoramas, though the videos can be seen, so they can be opened with a shortcut or seen in Finder

I really like the fact that if you select a number of photos in Exposure and view in Finder, then it will show these as selected, even with multiple Finder windows, so it is easy to work with files directly in your own harddrive folder structure

It is also fast, running nicely on my imac 2011
