In December 1997 I used my brand new Fuji DX-5 digital camera to snap 46 photos at 640 * 480. I was so pleased! Since then I’ve been through several cameras, currently own a Canon Digital Rebel (EOS 300D), and average more than 100 photos per month. Sometimes I manage a shot I love, but I’m still learning the art and craft of photography.
It was back in June 2000 that I started using iView Multimedia (now Pro) to organise my photos — at that time iPhoto didn’t exist. Today iView has jumped from version 2 to version 3 with even more goodies to make this the finest bit of software for managing photos.
iPhoto’s all very well if you have a handful of photos, and at its price it’s extremely good value. If you have a lot of photos though and want flexibility, speed and power then iView for Mac and Windows is what you need. The Pro version is a very hefty US$199 and the junior version US$50, but I find it worth the money.
