Forget Portfolio -- it is buggy, slow, hobbled by poor EXIF implementation and expensive. As a former Portfolio user and proponent, I am saddened that Extensis has given lip service and hype rather than provide a complete overhaul of their once-great app. iView MediaPro was amazing before they cashed out to Microsoft who gutted it and abandoned the project. Other posters are correct -- the best MULTIMEDIA viewer is Adobe Bridge. There is NO quality cataloging or library tool suitable for large and robust collections. iView Media came closest ever.... hint hint developers.

Well, as of today, Portfolio Stand alone is a dead product. Nice Extensis. Take a once-wonderful product and let it languish before killing it off without an ounce of respect. They could have sold it, spun it off or open-sourced it, but instead decide to throw it all away. Please, please, someone make something as good as this once was. We will buy it. The budgets and customers are there. Extensis only wanted big dollar agencies and did not care two cents about the small shops out there. To them, we're second rate citizens. To us, they are a third rate company, at best.

This appears to be the old 2011 version. It is too bad that there have been no updates since then. We use Portfolio for its abbility to to import/export fields as tab-delimited text. Too bad it does not support Excel directly. There are several interface problems which never get fixed. Extensis does not seem to care about this product. I would be glad to discuss improvements with them.

Version 8.5.6 has been available since August 2011. I guess they are just trying to regain a little visibility here.

I'd agree. There's actually not 1 seriously great image cataloguing program out there. Such a shame. We use bridge/lightroom for processing raw images but even that is as slow as portfolio to add/view data. And slower yet to do searches (if you think Portfolio is bad, bridge/lightroom are way slower and more expensive. So we add metadata but can't use it as a search tool. We're waiting for a better solution. There are a lot of other wanna be image programs but they are viewers more than anything. PROS about portfolio: Portfolio is more like a library catalogue (which is clunky compared to modern times) but EXTREMELY powerful cataloguing program. It can embed and export metadata into images which is awesome and simple. Speed hasn't been an issue with us and we run 1 catalog with over 20,000 images on a PC and another with 7,000 images on mac. The PC can be slow but it's a dog of a computer and it's the network that's slow not the program! If you have speed issues, try upgrading your machine. CONS: I agree with other comments tho, it's necessary to be able to embed metadata into raw files and be able to rotate them. That is crazy in a pro photo program! It is also for the serious/pro cataloguers who love it, but for photographers it's too time consuming for them or they don't understand the power of the fields. Shame they haven't kept up to date with the user's needs.

I have tried Portolio over I don't know how many versions and it never seems to get any better. It is slow, unstable (it crashes whenever it hits a file it doesn't like which is often) and unreliable especially with opening different version files. The killer for me is the constant crashes which force you to restart protracted cataloguing over and over to find the offending file. It is too stupid to flag the file that causes it to go down. I can only conclude those who seem to find it satisfactory are only scanning a small range of bitmap files, in which case I don't know why they don't just use iPhoto, Lightroom or Aperture. I do wish there was something on the Mac that was usable. Any suggestions?

Having read all of the comments on Portfolio and iMedia, I would question how valid the responses were... it seems to me that there's someone out there wanting to bag Portfolio and promote iMedia. Maybe I'm a skeptic but I think it's a shame if that's the case. There's better ways to compete with one another. I'm a professional photographer and getting valid, UNBIASED views would be appreciated on forums and I hope this is the case with this forum. However I'm inclined to ignore it as it seems too biased for my liking. If you want to have constructive criticism fine. I have used all the database software so if you do make comments it's good to be clear and concise and compare the two, not just make sweeping comments. I'll go elsewhere to find better comments, pros and cons, about the various photography databases out there. Shame, S

In short: STAY AWAY FROM Extensis Portfolio. I've been using Portfolio since version 7, on PC. Now I have a Mac, and am trying out version 8 with latest updates. But this software has become a nightmare, especially in view of the newer Bridge and Lightroom which do a better job. Portfolio issues: Keywording is a disaster. Especially when you consider that this is supposed to be an expensive DAM program. This alone is enough to ditch the software. Lightroom does such a graceful job with keywords, with hierarchy unlike Portfolio. Slugish. On my 8-core 2.8Ghz MacPro it is even slower than on my PC. Go figure. Expensive to buy and to upgrade. Even more so if you are not a US citizen. Unstable. Give it a few tasks to handle and it will hang and crash. I keep sending in the crash reports to Extensis, but never get any feedback. Cannot rotate an original unless it is a jpeg. Does not integrate well with Bridge or Lightroom. Did I mention that keywording REALLY sucks and it is outrageously expensive for what it is? Do your self a favour and do not buy it. It was once useful when it had less competition, but today there simply is no need for a single user to get Extensis Portfolio. I'm so disappointed with the money I spent on this bloated piece of junk.
