Hi John,

If I were doing this, I'd pick the program I like best as the first step. Then, before buying, I'd look into translating the database. And I'd look beyond what the software company says. There are many ways to translate standard database files. But it takes some testing to see if/how it works. And doing this for several programs is a lot of work.

BTW, ThumbsPlus is incapable of moving a bunch of folders from one place to another as a single operation, unless they share a common parent folder that is being moved too. Also, I think there was another problem reported here with lost data. I think Marjolein (username: iamback) reported it. I don't know if this is fixed now. And I think IMatch is incapable of viewing new photos until their information is imported into the database.
