    Photo software

    Hi All,
    I'm considering migrating to Windows/Linux from OSX. What do folks here use for photo management? I was using iPhoto on OSX, so something similar which will let me group photos into events and/or tag photos. I don't want anything online, and I've got about 20 years of digital snaps to sort, so I don't want to have to do it more than once.

    Ta....

    Re: Photo software

    Have you used Adobe Lightroom or DxO Photolab?? If so,there is Darktable which is free and has broadly similar functionality(although the paid software does a few things better AFAIK).

    Lightroom (Classic unless you want a subscription) ...if they still do it standalone.

    Re: Photo software

    If it's purely management/cataloging then Adobe Bridge is free: https://www.adobe.com/uk/products/bridge.html?red=a

    If you want to develop/edit photos then Darktable and RawTherapee are open source equivalents to Lightroom but I don't know if they're as good on the managment side of things.

    You should try Adobe Lightroom and Photo Manager Deluxe.
