    I just purchased the FujiFilm FinePix S1000fd and do not like the software, FinePixViewer, that came with it. May be just me but I find it to be very slow and does not offer all that much.

    Can anyone suggest a good program to use for transferring my pictures from camera to computer as well as organizing them?

    Thanks.

    Not sure about it because I haven't used it, but Picasa might be worth a look. Or iPhoto if you have a Mac.

    That's exactly what Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 was designed for.

    lightroom was designed for a LOT more than organizing photos.. its a complete editing program.. if the OP is just looking to organize, and not do any edits, lightroom is way over kill (cost wise)

    Lightroom is nowhere close to being a complete editing program. Though it is pretty handy it's really pretty limited as far as editing capabilities go.

    But, like I said it's great at managing an image database, which is where Adobe put the majority of their programing effort.

    Adobe does offer a complete editing solution though:
    The professional photography solution: Photoshop CS4 and Lightroom 2

    Together, Photoshop CS4 and Lightroom 2 provide a complete software solution for importing, processing, managing, and showcasing your images, as well as pixel-level editing and compositing. Save 30% on Lightroom 2 when purchased with Photoshop CS4. Learn more
