The results of the last poll are in. It’s Lightroom by a hair, followed by Aperture, then iPhoto. In fact, nearly three quarters of the almost 2000 respondents picked one of the big three. Fourth goes to OTHER, followed by Bridge and the rest of the gang.

The next poll is “Are You A Pro?”

You’ll have a week to answer. The poll is designed to allow only one vote per computer.

  1. If I remember correctly, about 50% of Twip listeners use a Mac (was there a previous poll on this?). If 50% of the votes in this poll came from Mac users, it suggests most Lightroom users are on a PC. Putting something as capable as iPhoto on every new Mac is a great way to get people started using software to manage their photos.

  3. I may be WAY oldschool, but I dont like management software. I set up folders, by date, for each event (2008-05-10 Aquarium) and then dump all the images in that folder.

    For the record, I still prefer handcoding websites in Notepad too ;)

  5. I have yet to try Lightroom or Aperture, but ACDSee is still the best management tool I have found. Like Buzzbishop I also use a system of folders named “YYYYMMDD_event_name” with the addition of Author, Copyright, Website, Description, and Keywords to the EXIF data of every image. ACDSee allows me to search, sort, and filter by any EXIF data with files that are local and files that are on removable devices and discs.

  7. Like the other two folks who have commented thus far I selected “Other” as well. I too use a similar folder structure. However, for ease of browsing I aggregate folders by year. For example, /2008/2008-05-06 Stanley Park

  9. What about Google’s Picasa. It is very fast and intuitive.
