    Not reading “.raw” format. Several free software do it!
    It’s just impossible to use such software.

    After a contact with the editor XtSense GmbH, I sent them a raw sample picture from my camera (Pentax K3).
    they attempt to create some plugin to load that type of file.
    If someone is interested to work with another raw file, try to furnish them a sample. We never know …

    Installs and runs ok on Win7 64-bit. Registered ok online after some initial problems. Either the developer or SoS has caused confusion by providing a “Product key” that actually goes in the Serial Number field.

    My big problem with ImageRanger is this: after launch it seems to pick an arbitrary image folder on the drive and show that. If it’s a big image folder with lots of images (or you choose such a folder in the browser), it goes into a frenzy of image indexing with high disk and CPU usage for a long time. But what is it doing? What files is it creating, chewing up my disk space? In the FAQ it says that unlike other programs it doesn’t have a central database, but stores its index information in each folder. Where? I can see that the system thumbs.db file has been updated, but it doesn’t seem to have grown, and ImageRanger shouldn’t be messing with a system file anyway. The Help file mentions db sub-folders and .irg files, but neither exists. There’s nothing in the ImageRanger program folder, or under ProgramData, or in My Documents. So where is it storing everything? I don’t even know if this hidden database would be removed if I uninstalled the program.

    It’s unacceptable for a program to create a large database in an unknown location on my hard drive. Therefore, I can’t recommend the program until the developer provides that information.

    Good question regarding the program database, we will be updating the docs to make this clear for all users!
    When you open a big folder containing thousands of images the ImageRanger will take some time to scan the folder and gather the information about your files. This requires some CPU attention and may last until all files are indexed.
    The information is collected only once and it will be used to speed up all subsequent sorting and filtering.
    Just like many other software packages the ImageRanger uses temporary files in the system/Temp folder (usually under /…/Local Settings/Temp/). These files can be deleted any time and are not critical for the application to work.
    You can clean temp files manually or when you choose “clean up” temporary files using the Windows services. Let me know if you need instructions on how to do it.

    Please do not hesitate to write your questions directly at [support at imageranger dot com].

    Hope that helps!

    There is a mistake on the application description on sharewareonsale.com
    Currently ImageRanger supports only 64 bit Windows systems.

    Thanks for the quick response. I saw the temp\imageranger_fs folder containing a lot of newly-generated *.fxz files, and that the contents of those files appear to refer to the indexed photo folders.

    So you’re saying that those files are the ImageRanger index, and that it gets wiped and would need to be regenerated if you clear the Windows temp folder? Hmmm, I guess that’s ok as long as the user knows about it. It would help to update the documentation to make it clear that ImageRanger doesn’t store the index in the photo folders that it’s indexing.

    Aside from that, the program does seem really useful, even if you already have other photo indexing programs, and it works fine for me.
