    iPhoto is too heavy for me, I have uninstalled it.

    Anything similar like ACDSee etc tool, without create its own lib, can browse tens of thousands photo in different folder?

    You can set iPhoto to not copy the photos to its own library, thus leave the photos where they are but still have the advantage of sorting them into Events.

    Anyway, Xee is a good alternative, found via "mac photo viewer" and that fabulous www search engine.

    Photomechanic is great but expensive. If you use Photoshop, the included Bridge is fine.

    Tried Xee, good enough for 95% of my usage.


    Thanks for suggestion, I am very lightly using photo, no experience on PhotoShop. I only need to browse and basic editing (mirror, rotate), that's all !
