  • Supports many image filetypes:
  • Easy name, category and caption annotation
  • Fast search by any kind of annotation
  • Preview in place on mouse over
  • Drag and drop into email
  • Easy enough for a child to use -

The interface lets you concentrate on the images, without having to manage scrollbars, menus, or pop-up windows.

"I think PhotoMesa is the best photo viewing product out there period, much better than even those from Adobe and Microsoft, and this is not the usability person but the consumer in me talking, and believe me, I check them out all the time and am extremely picky, there simply is no comparison as far as aesthetics and comfort go with anything else I have seen."
    -- Ant Ozok
