    "Great Image Manager..links to all your editing software"

    June 09, 2014   |   By craig.knapp1

    Version: ThumbsPlus Pro 9.0 Build 3935

    Pros

    Does not "re-organize" your photos, does not create a "virtual library" (which is dependent on one file not being ruined)

    Cons

    None, works fine.

    Summary

    09JUNE2014

    I have been using Thumbs Plus since about version 3.0, ten years or more ago. I started managing my digital photo collection with simple PS cameras in the early 2000's through my current camera, the Nikon D700.

    The fact that Thumbs Plus does not re-arrange your photos, does not create a "virtual library", means that your photos stay where you put them on your hard drive (Sub-directories such as YYYY MO DAY description....makes life so easy), thus the photos are not dependent on one file to be accessed.

    With Thumbs Plus, the user can create shortcuts to any photo editing software installed on the computer, and place said shortcut on the Thumbs Plus Toolbar. The user can browse photos in Thumbs Plus, select a photo and easily send the photo to the desired photo editor at the click of a toolbar shortcut.

    Of course this method is capable of editing photos in a non-destructive manner....edit the photo in the desired software, select SAVE AS, add a "c" or other denotation at the end of the file name and save it next to the original file!

    "Doesn't read files in new version like older versions"

    April 16, 2014   |   By rstamats1

    Version: ThumbsPlus Pro 9.0 Build 3935

    Pros

    None found program does not meet needs at all anymore.

    Cons

    I have been using Thumbsplus since version 4. I have files created in Corel's Photo Paint with the extension .CPT. Newest version freezes program and will not display files. Three emails and requests for refund have been ignored for 18 months now. This is my first bad review of a product.

    Summary

    Bad product, worse customer service. Buyer beware.

    "Used to be great - years ago!"

    February 06, 2014   |   By schnarpsel

    Version: ThumbsPlus Pro 9.0 Build 3928

    Pros

    Feature-rich

    Cons

    - Buggy
    - Non-existent customer support
    - Updates are rare, infrequent and mostly introduce more problems

    Summary

    I have been a long-term user of ThumbsPlus (since 2002) but over the last 5 years Cerious, the manufacturer, has gone completely downhill. There is absolutely no customer support anymore. The software itself has a routine which in the event of a crash sends an (optional) error report to Cerious. One even gets an automated email back with a case number and some meaningless reassurance that there will be a fix soon. But nothing ever happens. Really. Nothing.

    Approximately the last three updates never worked for me, the installations never once finished. There was always an error message and one had to abort. I have uninstalled, re-installed - all to no avail. All the while Cerious never once responded to support requests.

    It is a shame that this program which used to be perfect for my needs because it has customizable user fields I can define myself has become a buggy, unstable version.

    I don't recommend ThumbsPlus to anyone anymore because once you have a problem with it, you are on your own.

    "Relibale, easy-to-use thumnailing programme"

    October 27, 2013   |   By dd_armstrong

    Version: ThumbsPlus Pro 9.0 Build 3928

    Pros

    Intuitive, stable, very customisable, allows batch processes, nice load of keyboard shortcuts, etc. Doesn't try to re-organise anything, very handy if you "think in file folders" ...

    Cons

    Not the most full-featured photo editor, but then again - that's not what it is for in the end.

    "Horrible Support"

    August 13, 2013   |   By Rackmountguy

    Version: ThumbsPlus Pro 9.0 Build 3928

    Pros

    Used the program forever and I really liked it. Not anymore.

    Cons

    No support. Maybe somebody will answer the phone, maybe not. Did talk to somebody, sent the error logs, said they'd call back tomorrow. No call back. Happened a couple of times.

    Summary

    Used to be a good program. Not anymore. Gotten fragile. Database breaks and nobody can help. I'm done with them.

    "Hands down the best software for archiving artwork."

    December 28, 2012   |   By origininc

    Version: ThumbsPlus Pro 9.0 Build 3920

    Pros

    1. Easy to find images either on your computer or offline (such as on a DVD). I've been using Thumbsplus for over 10 years with more then a million images (textile designs) arcived and I've never had a problem finding a design.
    2. I printout catalogs so I can show my customers what I have worked on when I bill them. Printing a catalog is much easier and faster then creating contact sheets (which Thumbsplus does too). So in short it takes the drudgery out of billing my customers.

    Cons

    Tech support is nonexistent for the past few years. They don't answer their phones, return phone calls or return emails. I don't understand it. Good tech support is the best advertisement you can have. Here's an indispesible software (the best out there for archiving) and they act as though they don't care about their customers.

    Summary

    In short. The initial concept of Thumbsplus is a good one and an asset to any art studio. Thumbsplus got everything right from the start. It's hands down the best archiving software out there (yes, lightroom is terrible for archiving). I hope they get their tech support/act together. Ignoring tech support is a huge mistake.

    "Worthless POS"

    October 23, 2012   |   By larryAjax

    Version: ThumbsPlus Pro 8.0 Build 3537

    Pros

    Product from 10 years ago worked

    Cons

    Not usable with WIN7. Waste of time, software does not work. Thumbsplus 8 or 9 has no support and does not function with Win 7.

    Summary

    Beware, they will steal your money and not support their non functioning product. I have tried nicely to get support, they do not respond, there is no help on their support forums or facebook or in their FAQ. BUYER BEWARE.

    "This use to be an awesome program, but now watch out!"

    January 12, 2011   |   By tntiii

    Version: ThumbsPlus Pro 8.0 Build 3516

    Pros

    Works well if you have no technical issues or are not upgrading your database from an earlier version of Thumbs.
    Can customize your desktop and preferences

    Cons

    No technical support they only answer the phone if you want to place an new order.
    Database is not transferable between two unlinked computers
    Databases in earlier versions become corrupt on several occasions trashing all previous work done on them.

    Summary

    Used this product for many years before other companies like Adobe came out with similar products so I kept upgrading it from version 4 now to 8. When updating my database from previous version 7 you need to have the program modify the database to work with the new format of version 8. Well this took a bit of time but when done the database failed to open after many tried and backups. Attempted to contact customer service about the issue via phone and was transferred to an answering machine a few days after not hearing back from them I called again and was put on hold for 20 minutes until disconnected. I later submitted a trouble ticket on their support site that has gone answered for a week now! Bottom line this product works well version 7 and earlier but trying to get your old database to work in the new version is useless as well as their tech support.. I would suggest you find another program!

    "OK but not ahead of competitors as it was before"

    September 17, 2010   |   By nutnut222

    Version: ThumbsPlus Pro 8.0 Build 3516

    Pros

    Good for organising and viewing photos

    Cons

    Slow to start and can be buggy.
    "Customer technical service" (bug reporting) useless - no response after many weeks and many reminders .....

    Summary

    I used the earlier versions of this software a lot, and had paid for registered version. Then it stopped performing and as I had NO RESPONSE from service dept, tried new version. Again NO RESPONSE to subsequent queries raised.
    Now I have no confidence in this company for taking care of my photographs - who knows what might go wrong, and how to get help when it does!

    Updated on Sep 17, 2010

    Wow, just read other reviews and realised everyone is having the same problems!
    Farewell Cerious ..............................

    "Used to be a great software"

    August 18, 2010   |   By mr_e_vader

    Version: ThumbsPlus Pro 8.0 Build 3516

    Pros

    Best image management system bar none...out of the box.

    Cons

    Cerious Tech support is a cruel joke. They don't respond to any emails and their web page directs you to newsgroups that no longer exist. When people have managed to get through to complain they give ridiculous excuses that are simply lies.

    Summary

    As long as it works for you out of the box, its great. If you need ANY form of support you are out of luck.
