Photos can be organized into folders and albums - kind of virtual folders.+Naturally, Photo Organizer'​s ​main feature is photo management. ​
  
-Image files are stored in an image repository with automatic volume manager which makes Photo Organizer more secure (as access to the image files is permitted only via PO) and to ease the upload ​porcedure, a bulk upload mechanism was added with XMLXMPIPTC and EXIF metadata import. Shooting data converters from NKNTXT and SDF into XML provides compatibility ​with your exisiting database.+Each image you upload ​can be tagged ​with detailed metadata -- Captions, keywords, locationstimestampsequipment you used and its settings, and more.  You can upload multiple versions of the same photograph, perhaps with different processing options. ​ Photos are organized in hierarchical folders, but can also be added into multiple //albums//, which are a sort of virtual folder, ​with permission control so that unauthorized users can't access images they shouldn'​t.
  
-Thanks to [[http://​www.cybercom.net/​~dcoffin/​dcraw/​|Dave Coffin'​s RAW image decoder]] ​Photo Organizer supports ​most RAW digital camera formatsenabling ​users to store original RAW files in the system'​s database+Photo Organizer supports ​the notion of photo lifecycles; images can be submitted to clientsand PO keeps track of physical image location and duplication for users that work with physical assets, such as slides or proofs sent to clients.

-  * Client Submission History ​you can track where your dupes were submitted ​and where are they now+ 
-  * Rating System - where each user (including the owner) can rate each photo once. +Finally, Photo Organizer is built to scale. ​ The author'​s personal site has over 22,000 images ​over nearly 500 folders as of this writing. As Photo Organizer makes full use of a relational database for metadata storage, your only real limitation is disk space.
