Best way to classify photo collection?

Post by andrea.ippo » Mon Mar 15, 2010 10:58 am

Hi everybody,
I have some thousand photos to classify, and actually I'm doing this by creating folders and giving to the files meaningful names.
However this takes a lot of time, and it would be much more effective if I could use the tagging mechanism instead.
So I come to my question:
what solution do you use to tag your photos?
Can I safely use the XMP format? (is it largely supported?)
Or do you suggest something else?

Thank you

It is generally available on all OS. And XnViewMP's support is mentioned on IPTC's Web - Software list.
