Photo management software is a type of computer application
that helps users to organize their digital image collection.
One of the biggest culprits of a cluttered hard disk are
images taken with a digital camera. This device enable users to take
literally hundreds or even thousands of photos storing them on a single
small memory device. The photos are then transferred to a computer hard
disk for sharing with family and friends, editing, and to print to a
photo printer or one of the many online digital photo printing services.
Anyone with a large photo collection will know that cataloging
and finding a specific picture can be very time consuming. The

your collection by using a number of different techniques including
