To bring this thread back from the archives ….. Having put this off for a long time, I find that the time is ripe for me to get something to help me sort out my picture library, to rate them, and categorise them. I have most of my pictures, 10,000s of them on my home server which I access over wifi whenever I am at home. I need the application to allow me to access these pictures which are on the server and the ones on my laptop, to be able to rate them, categorise them and perform little adjustments to them (cropping mostly). It would be great if this application has a Mac version as well, and that I can access the pictures with their relevant “data sorting, categorisation etc.” from which ever application / platform. Since I currently am using a PC with windows, the application would need to run under this platform for now and once I move to Mac I would get the Mac version without my need to redo all that was done, and that I can access my pictures with all the details that I have done to them. Thanks in advance for any help on this.
