Photology is an innovative photo manager that goes beyond any other similar application you've seen so far. Although its browsing capabilities are not as user-friendly as those of, let's say, Picasa, this great piece of software features very promising tools that may change the way you deal with your photos forever.

After scanning the PC and creating your personal photo database, you'll be presented with a dark, elegant interface that displays picture thumbnails (which unfortunately can't be resized) and allows you to browse your collection, although only by using an annoying horizontal scroll.

However, the big surprise comes when you test Photology's search filters. Some of them are quite standard, like searching by tags or by the date the photo was taken. But some other use advanced techniques that enable you to locate pictures according to their location (outside or inside), the time of the day (morning, afternoon, evening or night), their main colors or even their content: faces, plants, sky, beach, sunset and other classic photo topics.

The filters are not infallible but they usually offer good results and enable you to find pictures in any way, without having to know the file name or where or when it was taken.

Photology also includes special features to share photos with your friends, such as a direct link to your Flickr account or a tool that creates a ZIP file wit your pictures and uploads it to a file hosting service (S3), all with a single click.

Photology features revolutionary tools that enable you to manage, search and share your pictures in a very quick and easy way.

Can't find the photo of Uncle Ted wearing that orange polka dot tuxedo taken a few years ago at the 4th of July party on the beach? No problem. Your nine trillion gigabyte hard drive is no match for Photology! You know the expression, "finding a needle in a haystack," right? Thanks to Photology, haystacks of photos will get a lot smaller, making it much easier to find the "needle" you're looking for – even if that needle is an orange polka dot tuxedo.


Most photo software requires you to tag your photos or relies on organized folders. But not Photology! Photology analyzes your photos so you can search for them as if you were telling a story, using intuitive search filters that reflect the way people think and remember. No tags – no folders – Photology just knows your photos.


Looking through your photos can be a chore because it just takes too long. And no one likes to do chores. But because Photology can search through 10,000 photos in less than a second to find 3,000 photos with plants, or 1,000 with beaches, or 56 with just the right shade of purple, looking at your photos is no longer a chore.


Where's the photo of you in that pink silk jacket from last year? You may remember the jacket, but not recall where the photo was taken. We won't ask why you own a pink silk jacket; it's none of our business. But you could find this photo by searching for the color pink, or photos taken outside (because you're now remembering something about a statue of a general in a park?)
