Try Kodak EasyShare, a possible iPhoto replacement
Authored by: pkishor on May 13, '04 11:26:50PM
This app gets even better. First, check out the image editing tools... simple, but effective and nice -- sepia, vignette, black and white effects; red eye, crop, etc. Nice.

Now, to make it work on a networked drive (so others may be able to open an already created catalog instead of recreating it), create a symbolic link to the catalog after removing it to the target location. In my world...

All 3000 or so photos are on 'disko', an external firewire drive currently hanging off of my iBook. I "imported" all 3000 images, which created the catalogs in my ~/Library/Application Support/Kodak EasyShare.

I moved the entire "Kodak EasyShare" folder to a folder called /shared/Pictures/ on the external drive, and then typed the following in my terminal all on one line --

[lamacina:~/Library/Application Support] foo%ln -s /Volumes/disko/shared/Pictures/Kodak\ EasyShare Kodak\ EasyShare

Started the EasyShare app, and bingo, it found the catalog. Went to another machine on the network, created the same link, and the catalog was available there as well... pointing to one and only one repository of photos.
