    Will ON1 Photo RAW give me any more options then good old Photoshop. I've been using Photoshop for many, many years. Also since Apple discontinued Aperture I've been using Adobe Lightroom but I hate it. Is there any other possibilities out there for me to catalogue my many images?Thanks

    Thanks I'll try Picasa. Any tips you care to share about Picasa. I have all my RAW original Images on a separate internal HD.

    Oh my! Thanks for the update. There are a couple of photo enthusiasts here. Let's see what they have to say.

    I've been using Photoshop since CS2, and I'm now on Photoshop CC 2017.
    I've never been a fan of any of the image organizes that come along with the software, prefering to put together my own
    image/photo storage system on a second internal drive by making new folders such as Family, Personal, Business, Edits, Raw, etc.

    Having said that, I do use Dropbox for storing copies of files I may need when I'm away from home.

    As far as raw files are concerned, there is a free plugin available to photoshop users for editing in raw. If it's of any interest here's
    a video...

    I do edit in RAW always. Thanks for the info. I'm just very frustrated with Lightroom since Aperture was discontinued. I need a good catalogue app. Video was very good. Thanks

    What I like about CC2017, you can now edit .jpg in raw format.
    Great if someone sends you a .jpeg to edit.
    I just make my own image folders, and name them.
    I don't need software to do that.:)

    Sorry, I don't follow you.
    I am confused.
    You want to look at 500 images at one time?
    I just open a specific folder and click on one image at a time I want to view.
    If I want to work on the image, I open the selected image in Photoshop.
    If I wanted to view my images in bulk, I would have 37,000 + images in one folder, and be scrolling for ever.
    That's why I have all my Folders named carefully, so I know where to look.

    Ok say you shot 20 different expressions of a portrait or your grandkids and want to pick out the keepers. ay her or she docent change expressions to much and you need to compare them? Say you shooting a landscape and the sun is dropping very slow. There are many example to view many images sis by side. Say it's a portrait with shallow depth of field and you want to make sure the eyes are sharp? Ok so I reread your answer and you have many small collection of images in many small folders.

    I often take up to 10 photos of the one image with different camera settings both Raw and .jpeg.
    I choose two at a time, on a split screen, and keeping one of those to compare with the next like image, till I have whittled it down to two left, and make a judgement on those last two.

    If your serious, get yourself a square Monitor, so your images don't suffer from oblong monitor distortion.

    3am here. Others can chime in.:)

    I have a 27" NEC with the calibration tool. I haven't even loaded any ink in my Epson R3000 yet. Here's my site
