I'm using iPhoto happily. It's not the speediest, but I find it very
easy to use, I like the way it organizes things, and it does exactly
what I want it to do. (It includes an option to export a web page of
photos, which is very handy.)
Ugggh... Never did much care for Image Browser, but that's me. :-)
iPhoto organizes in Year/Month/Day format for the folders -- really, I
don't think it was designed with human consumption in mind. When I
want to pull pictures out of the database, I just highlight them, use
iPhoto's "Export" command, and put them into a tempoary folder that way
for uploading or whatever.
iPhoto also gives me the option of getting the resulting filename from
the hand-entered Title (which usually is different from, and more
descriptive than, the filename as it came from the camera), which makes
things much easier for me later on. I particularly like the way it
interfaces with iDVD and can export Quicktime movie slide shows.
Another program I may investigate further is iView Media (or iView
Media Pro), which may be more along the lines of what you want. It's
gotten very good reviews here. Check it out:
I'm not ready to hop over just yet, as I'm comfortable with iPhoto, but
it's definitely worth investigating. The basic version is $30, the Pro
is $90. Both have a free trial if you want to take it for a spin.
Hope that helps.
