I'm looking for cataloguing software to help keep track of our burgeoning number of images. We currently use Adobe Photoshop Album and would continue to use but it doesn't support raw files (Nikon NEF) and is rotation of JPEG's is lossy.

I'm looking for a tool that is

  1. easy to use (at least one normal person will use this software)
  2. supports lossless rotation of jpeg's
  3. supports Nikon RAW files
  4. will help keep track of files as they are edited (ie it understands that 3 different files are the same images at different stages in their processing)
  5. supports tagging similar to Photoshop Album. Album allows you to define tags and then attach them to photos. This is a much more powerful concept than textual keywords because there is never any risk of mistyping one and never be found again.

I tried IMatch from it's powerful (NEF support, lossless rotation), but the UI is a bit haphazard and there is a real learning curve. In addition there is no built-in delete you have to use a script.

In addition I'm aware of:

What can you recommend?
