I’m in the same boat looking for a good image management software. I’ve had Picasa for a few weeks, to give it an honest shot. I like how fast and smooth it is. My complaint though is that it insists on making dang folders and dividing them by the date of the file! In theory it’s a good idea, and there are some folders that I’m happy that it does it for. I just wish you could turn off the “sort by date” feature, or better yet, make a misc. folder that is not sorted that way. So maybe I’ll keep looking.
