All these are clearly arranged in the user interface, and can be extensively searched. For numerous photo and video formats, CDFinder generates thumbnails during cataloging, displaying them in all list and icon views.
Integration - Offering a tight connection to major productivity tools, such as Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office, FileMaker Pro, Roxio Toast, Apples Spotlight, Finder, and iPhoto, and the extensive support of drag&drop into other applications, CDFinder can support many workflow scenarios.

CDFinder can even geotag photos itself, no other software needed.
Networking - Store your catalog database on a server for access from all Macs in the network, and with the sidekick product CDWinder for Windows even from Microsoft Windows.
