Has anyone found a software program the works like iPhoto for a Windows PC? I had to switch back to a PC at work (VPC for AutoCAD was just not cutting it any more), and now I need to transfer my iPhoto Library to the PC.

Any advice would be apprciated.

Thanks,
Ross

Nasrudin sat on a river bank when someone shouted to him from the opposite side: "Hey! how do I get across?" "You are across!" Nasrudin shouted back.

Like the person above, try PhotoAlbum. Jim Coates (Chicago Tribune computer guru) reviewed it in this past Sunday's paper, I think, and specifically mentioned that the program comes close to iphoto.

Is that a good thing? I find iPhoto really slow when I have more than a couple hundred photos - spinning disk city. It also seems to be overly restrictive; I know you can assign keywords to particular images but I'd like to be able to move images from one film roll to another, for example. Furthermore, trawling through an old iPhoto library I found several film rolls had been duplicated, triplicated, quadruplicated... to various different months and years. Not aliases, the whole shebang. I hope this all gets sorted out because apart from a few minor gripes, I like it.

What camera are you using? I have the Nikon D100 and the software that Nikon has is quite useful, Nikon View 6.

Try Kodak Easyshare. I like it, too bad it is broke under panther, but it should work on PC no prob.
