I like four features of iPhoto:
- Photo files are stored in directories by YEAR/MONTH/DAY . This makes sense.
- I can use albums to group together photos of the same event taken on different days.
- If the camera date was set wrong, I can change the metadata on the photos.
- My entire library is in iPhoto and organized in a way I understand.
I have heard good things about Picasa (Google's answer to organizing photos) but also bad things (it's slow; too many bells and whistles).
Suggestions? I've been making myself cozy on Ubuntu, but this is really irking me.
[Update, two hours later: I installed Picasa to try it out. After an XKCD-like series of events, something -- possible a hidden preference file? bug reports online are unclear -- is quite borked about my entire setup. Also, Google now gives me search returns in French and Portugese, but not English. Now everything I try fails, not just with Picasa but also basic OS functionality. Aaaiiieee! But there are no sharks. Yet.]
