    I'm looking for a good program to keep track of my photos. My library is growing and I want something before it gets out of hand. Any help would be great.

    I suggest ACDSee. You can get a free trial from their site. They have basic and pro. If you shoot raw, and want non-destructive (including JPEG) editing then I would go with the PRO version. It will organize using your folder system (or help re-org the system you have) without having to import all your images.

    It's fast and has many ways to organize too.

    Have fun, I rememeber when I got organized, then went back through all my past years and organized the older images too. It was fun to get everything tagged and now easily searcable.

    Should this be of any help, I wrote a brief summary about organizing:

    Another vote for ACDSee.
    It recognizes all standard image file formats.
    You can categorize on multiple keywords so it makes it pretty easy to find what your looking for.
