Does anyone know of any Mac OS X applications that provide similar functionality to iPhoto without iPhoto's problems (namely incredibly poor performance)? I've got over 3000 images in my iPhoto library, and using iPhoto is an exercise in frustration.

As a photographer with over 15 years worth of images now on the computer iview is the best program we have found out there for cataloging images. Its a simple and straight to the point program with no glitches so far. Like Poster boy said its not free but in my opinion its worth every cent I paid for it.

Another nice program that I had asked the
author over a year ago to make a Mac version
is Irfanview, He said at the time that he was
considering making one but was very busy.

These are "Windows only" builds at the
moment, But check out the great features, Not
bad for a FreeWare.

Maybe he'll make one this year ;)

A good iPhoto alternative is Curator by the now defunct Caffeine Software. You can still find it out on the net. If you have trouble downloading it I could get you a copy.

It isn't as slick as iPhoto, but much better at handling large libraries, which seems to be your main concern.



Cheers!

I agree that iView Media is a great program. Not only can you catalog your photos, you can create catalogs of any kind of media (music and movies too).
I've only used it limited fashion; but I find it far more flexible than iPhoto.
Ciao!
