Very good

With an ever growing collection of digital photos, many computer users are in search of an appropriate tool to manage them.

Photo Manager 2008 can be the answer to this search. This complete application works as a photo manager, viewer and editor, plus including some extra tools to make the most of your photo collection.

The program features a classic interface divided into several areas that contain your system's folder structure, image preview and a task list. You can view your photos in thumbnail lists or full screen, apply a series of basic edition effects, create an HTML photo album to share your pictures online, see and edit EXIF data in each image, print several photos on a single sheet of paper and find duplicate images, among other possibilities.

Despite the array of tools included, Photo Manager 2008 generally falls short of expectations. Its editing capabilities are a bit limited – at least when compared to other similar programs – and it also lacks functionalities that you can easily find in other photo editors.

Photo Manager 2008 is a photo editor and viewer with which you can organize, view and edit your pictures, though it lacks advanced tools you find in other similar apps.

Preview, organize, edit, and print your digital photos with Photo Manager 2008. Find images on your computer and remove duplicates. Assign keywords, ratings, and captions to your photos, and then pick the required photo from the database in one second.

Browse Folders and Preview Images

Photo Manager 2008 displays classic list of thumbnails for images in a folder and lets you explore folders and preview photos located on your compact disks or DVDs, local disks, removable disks or network drives. Preview photos in full screen mode or run a slide show.

Print Photos

Print your photos one image per page, or multiple images per page with optimal layout, or as a contact sheet. Customize and format page headers and footers as desired.

Edit Images

Adjust brightness or contrast, hue and saturation, make gamma correction of your photos, correct color balance, remove noise, and use editor filters, such as sharpness, edge detection, and even view the Fourier Transform of selected photo. Save edited photo to a new file in common image formats. Photo Manager supports Undo/Redo feature with unlimited number of edit operations.

Assign Keywords, Ratings and Categories to Images

Assign keywords, categories, ratings and captions to photos in Tags view.

Search in Database

Search for images in the database by keywords, ratings and categories in DB Search view. Pick required images in a second and manage the results: preview, edit, print or copy photos.

Search for Images on Local Discs and Network Drives

Search your local disks, CDs or DVDs, network drives for images, and put all images to a special list for your further work.

Search for Duplicates

Photo Manager allows you to search for and manage duplicate images.

Manage Photos

It is easy to manage any images that are shown in any view of the program. You can sort, copy, move, delete image files or entire folders with images.

EXIF Properties

Photo Manager displays detailed information about the selected photo, including EXIF properties and camera manufacturer notes (Maker Notes).

RAW format Support

With RAW format plug-ins Photo Manager previews photos created in RAW format and can develop and save full size images. See the list of supported RAW formats and cameras.


Photo Manager supports plug-ins. Currently we provide the plug-ins: Canon RAW format Support for PowerShot and EOS cameras; and the Get Photos plug-in for Canon cameras. The RAW formats of Nicon cameras and other manufacturers will be supported in the following versions of Photo Manager (as new plug-ins). We also plan to issue the Photo Manager Plug-ins SDK for software developers.
