PhotoFinder saves users a great deal of time searching all over their computer for photographs. This incredibly simple program's results are quick and hard to beat, though users will have to experiment a little to get the hang of it.
This program offers such a simple interface that some users will need to retreat to the Help file immediately. The program's blank screen and short list of commands will present users with their photographic folders only after some blind clicking around. Luckily, though, once it is understood, mastery comes quickly. Users begin by visiting the File menu and choosing to scan either the C drive or the D drive. Confusingly, this does not present photos on the screen. Next, users must go to View and choose Folder. Here, a list of all folders containing photographs is listed. Users need only click on any folder to view thumbnail shots of the entire folder. Clicking on a picture will bring up a separate window, displaying a larger shot as well. Two features add to the overall quality of this program, including its ability to print off a proof sheet, which is a sheet of thumbnails that professionals use. Another feature is the program's ability to adjust the thumbnails' size with the push of a button.
The program's trial places a watermark on printed materials. While the program's interface is an initial hurdle, users will love its ability to quickly showcase photos.
PhotoFinder creates high-quality thumbnail images for all the photos on a hard drive. View these thumbnails at 50%, 100% or 200% to quickly review and locate photos in a folder you select, which can be the entire hard drive. Use the printing feature to create high quality printed proof sheets. Easily supports tens of thousands of photos.
