If you're looking for a way to sift through an enormous image library for specific photos, this app might be just the ticket. A simple interface based on the .NET framework features a dark gray background and large easy-to-read buttons for the programs feature set. Images are displayed as thumbnails with the ability to flip through pages if you're just looking to browse. Some editing tools are available for red-eye correction and image rotation, and you can sort photos into groups made easily accessible on the bottom of the interface. But Photology's true strength is the ability to quickly sort through giant photo libraries and find images fitting a specific criteria. You can sort by date, time of day, location (inside or outside), content (faces, flowers, sunsets), and you can enter a search term if you have previously named images. But our favorite feature is the ability to search by color simply by using a mouse-over tool to select different gradations. Though some may be turned off by the required extra download of the .NET framework, this program is a great choice for anyone wishing to search and collect photos from large image libraries.
