Re: [Gimp-user] Source of photos

Just as another option for PC,  Mac, or Linux is XnView/XnViewMP. 

It's a great image viewer/organizer/converter and would use it regardless, but you can configure multiple 
programs to open an image in and then access them by shortcuts. When I find an image I want to open in gimp I 
just hit "Alt+1" and it opens gimp if not already open, or opens image in a new tab.

It also has the added benefit of decent support for xcf thumbnails so you can browse your gimp files, and 
it's free for personal use. (No ads or nags)

In Lightroom I was able to have a "directory" to choose from such as

The pictures in these folders were indexed down the left side of the
screen.  Stored in a separate hard drive.

In the GIMP file chooser - at least on Linux - you can add to the
places shown on the left-hand side.

There's no thumbnail browser builtin to GIMP though. Maybe it'd make a
good add-on. the GNOME file chooser will display thumbnails and you can
drag them into GIMP to open the image. In the gnome image viewer
(depending on gnome version) you can also tag images and select images
by tag. There's also Shotwell, a photo manager for Linux systems.

If you're using a Mac i've no idea, sorry.
