    What programs are you guys using to keep your digital shots organized? What are the advantages or disadvantages to it? Thanks

    iPhoto

    Advantages are extreme flexibility and ease of use. No disadvantages. Of course, you do need a Mac but that's another advantage!

    I use adobe bridge, but then again that's only because it's the only thing I have that can view RAW besides photoshop and the canon software.

    Adobe Bridge... Really like they rating and meta data features. Lightroom would probably work too, but did see enough benefit for me to spring for it and CS3

    Aperture swear by it, and now I can shoot RAW, a stunning program.

    ACDSee Pro 2

    Works on xp and vista

    Pretty pricey program but you can use a trial for a month and try it first.

    Plus I can view RAW files now! :)

    Does shooting in RAW really help with your final product? What are some advantages to that?
    I am using a canon digital xti and really just learning with it. I have been using the best quality jpeg settings but, my photos aren't pro quality yet.
