Phototheca Comments

Phototheca / FotoAlbum

Comment by davitof
about Phototheca and FotoAlbum Aug 2013

I have been using FotoAlbum for years, so my opinion is certainly biased. I tried to do a quick comparison between FotoAlbum, Phototheca and JetPhoto. I confess I have been unable to use JetPhoto, so that I have no opinion about it apart from the point that the first steps are less than obvious to me. Phototheca and FotoAlbum are close: free and paid versions, both use a library to which you must first import your images... The advantages of Phototheca are cosmetic, but cosmetics are important for photos! I don't know why, but all FotoAlbum themes are light, and I prefer a dark background to see my photos. Apart from that, I feel that FotoAlbum has much more features than Phototheca in the free versions, especially in the tagging features, but also in the fields which can be used to create a smart album. This is not an in depth analysis, as I did not create a comprehensive list of features to compare these softwares.

Phototheca is a really good photo manager with lot of features

Positive Comment by Kawoon
about Phototheca Oct 2012

Phototheca made an impression for me. Appart from standart functions like photos browsing (which works really fast on my computer) or slideshow it has such features like displaying photos by calendar, or in timeline. It's really convenient and I didn't see such features in other apps. And it's free!
