    I was wondering whether there were any viable alternatives to Photos just to act as an organiser/viewer for jpegs? I have Lightroom for editing and that also holds the more recent files (everything is backed up) but I find jpegs easier to handle for basic things like looking at them!

    Photos is ok but a little annoying. Not sure about trying iPhoto again as it won't be supported? So are there any recommended 3rd party apps for this purpose? I used to quite like Picassa on Windows machines.

    I've been using "Lyn".
    Works well enough for me, even in "demo mode".
    I just use it to "browse 'n' cull" -- to quickly remove the bad shots from the usable ones.

    Power Photos is quite a handy tool - works with Photos library too.

    If you liked Picasa on Windows, have you tried using Picasa for OS X?

    Feels more and more like abandonware to me. They are focusing their energy on Google Photos. Admittedly, it is a fantastic product.

    I didn't realise Picasa was available. Not too fussed about it being a little out of date as long as it works and is logical. Google can get things right sometimes.....
