Manage photos in the hundreds of hundreds or even thousands is not an easy matter, especially if you still don't have the habit of adding as clear information as possible to each photo. As a result, many photos are stuck somewhere and are hard to find even if you use file search software such as Everything or Agent Ransack.
The solution that you can try in this case is digiKam, a freeware that is specifically designed to manage more than 10,000 photos. The file size is large but it's worth what you get. This open source software is not only for photographers who often process RAW photos, but also for general users who simply want a photo manager whose performance does not disappoint.

In the process you will be asked to determine the location of the folder used to store photos and databases, set how RAW photos should be displayed, adjust the quality of photos displayed in the preview, and turn off or turn on tooltips.
