32500 pictures later...

My German logistics have failed me. After freelancing for four years now I have accumulated quite a few photographs, all stored on my external hard drive. Here I have about 63 Gigabytes of images (roughly 20000 19755 images) which have not been sorted, dated or categorized, just lazily dumped into a ‘Pics’ folder. Over an above that I have another 8 DVD’s of images (that’s another est. 12500 pics) waiting to be managed.

I’ve been using programmes such as Picasa for a while now (but mostly for my personal stuff), but never to its fullest potential. A major problem is that many of my images have been shot in RAW format, one which is not properly read by Picasa...

    no ideas yet. started with sorting all my freelance stuff with picasa this afternoon and not too convinced.

    Have the feeling that it is however the closest to a free picture management program available...
