Review article: 

Best Free Digital Photo Organizer


Excellent fast utility with a clean, simple design and a versatile indexing system.


Needs Windows Live sign up; not the most powerful image editor; by default overwrites existing viewer preferences.

Product type: 

Runs as a stand-alone program on a user's computer
