Thread: image selection and filtering software

  1. #1

    Default image selection and filtering software

    can someone recommend a good (and preferably free) software that quickly loads photos that are on the hard disk (in raw and jpg format) and allows one to easily browse and rate photos (by colour coding / stars / 1-5 ratings etc) and then subsequently view them by the categories specified?

    i am currently using picasa, which works fine except for the woefully inadequate single starring system.

    I am writing on the assumption that threat starter is a Nikon camera user. For Nikon camera user, Nikon ViewNX2 freeware will suffice requirement of handling RAW & JPEG files and multiple level of rating or classification via colour coding and star ratings.

    What exactly do you mean with 'slow'? It could be that the previews are not prepared and need to be created upon accessing the image. As a result, the image appears to load slowly. Check your Catalog Settings - File handling. Keep the previews for as long as you need, but keep in mind it will increase the size of the LR database. Also, check the LR Preferences - File handling, whether JPG previews are created upon import (should be the standard setting).
