Our Freeware: Ordner
Ordner is a UNICODE program, which helps to organize your JPEG images, using multiple hierarhical categories and auto-categories (EXIF tags are supported).

Ordner main window

Information about the images is written into an XML file that is always kept together with the images and thumbnails. Comments and any number of categories can be assigned to each image. Multiple hierarhical category trees help to keep track of when and where the image was shot, to create albums, to mark favourites, etc.

Advanced filtering capabilities allow to find pictures matching specified categories. With the help of hierarhical categories it is easy to keep track on when and where the image was shot and who is present on the image, to create thematical albums, to mark your favourites, etc.

CDs with images can also be catalogued for off-line thumbnail browsing.

Powerful export function allows to create autorun CDs with Ordner itself and its database, as well as template based HTML albums or just backup copies of images with corresponding data. It can also be used to prepare data for prints, to resize images, strip meta-information, etc.

Of course, slide show and multi-rename tool are available. Editing capabilities are restricted to lossless JPEG transforms.

This software was created with the help of wxWidgets and uses libEXIF library and FOOOD's icons. Windows x32 and x64 builds are available, as well as experimental (tested only on Ubuntu 20.04) debian package for x64 Linux systems.
