Lightbox is an easy-to-use, inexpensive photo management application designed from the ground up for serious photographers. Unlike other photo applications, Lightbox doesn't require you to keep track of what folders you put your images in--it manages everything about an image, including the thumbnail and original raw file, for you. And it can even do so on multiple hard drives! Let Lightbox manage your photos, and don't ever forget where you stored an image again! Lightbox also has support for:
