Photos Sharing Software

Does anyone have ideas for software that will allow me to view photo collections in thumbnail views, and allow me to click on individual thumbnails and edit the properties of the file. (As oppose to right-clicking the file in My Computer, and then clicking properties, and then clicking the Summary tab)

I guess the most important part of this request is the "edit the properties" of a jpg part.

Thank you, as always!


PS - I'm looking for something in the price range of free, but will pay if need be.

Forgive me, but what is IPTC Editing?

In reply to: IPTC editing. Or try IRFANVIEW....

See subject.

I've Googled this, but still haven't found a definition or explanation.

Wikipeida has an interesting bit on a consortium's 1970s founding. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPTC) The group's goal sounds compatible with the type of technology I'm requesting...But I still don't know what IPTC is.

Look again..

In reply to: Forgive me, but what is IPTC Editing?

The items you asked for are in the software I noted. Since the software is free to try, I only wonder why you don't try it. Some want long explanations and ironclad warranties that a free item will do exactly what they want.

I can't offer such.
