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.
love seeing them all together, so many that my computer crashed, lol
Not enough info so that I could not place them or remove, which would be the ice on the cake and very handy!
I would love to see the thumbnails with the info as to where they are stored. Somehow with the numbering so that one can select and store the info into an folder. From there we would be able to store, edit or remove them. In my opinion, the program would be an very desirable addition when fitted out in that way.
Eventually you get to see all of your graphic images (I have thousands) and to see the duplicates although it takes a bit of practice to figure out how to work it.
Having got all your images in one place, it's like viewing a catalogue. You can't do anything with them. You can't even find out which drive or subfolder the image is in - (needed especially if you are trying to remove duplicates.
Could be real slick if the developers can solve the location problem - thy can name the file, why not name the drive, folder etc as well?
