I got around to trying QuickPic. I couldn't get much to work and their tutorial didn't seem to correspond to what I actually had on my phone. No option to tag for instance. Googling found that it was bought up a couple of years ago and since then has been on a slippery slope, people are uninstalling it. Rumor has it the current owners also are known spammers and more.

But, by searching for QuckPic replacements I found this page with two possible options for me.

I'm trying f-stop and it seems to do what I want. The other one, Focus, is neater according to the page's author, but you need to pay to get the tagging option. There's a paid version of f-stop too, but I haven't figured out if it offers anything I need yet. Oh, it has a cool option, password protected folders. I think in this case it really moves the files. Just what I need. I've taken pictures of some rashes I get that comes and goes, to show my doctor. Don't want just anyone to see those! ohmy.gif tongue.gif

So thanks again, thematrix. I wouldn't have found anything without your tip. smile.gif

I'm more than content with f-stop. It has everything I could wish for. I use it daily and can really recommend it. My one complaint is that it has no way to add comments to the meta data for an image.

I have a large SD-card and upload images from my real camera to it, so I always have my pictures with me. The way I can create virtual folders and albums and sort and order images any way I want without the app ever copying, moving or touching the picture files in any way is great.

So... now I'm looking for a similar desktop program. Anyone happens to know of one? wub.gif

I blew the dust of an old one I used to love back in the day, PhoA. It was very promissing, but development seized back in 2005. It's still useable, but if a modern program with the same approach exists it would maybe be better. PhoA had some quirks, mainly supporting limited image formats.

I've tried searching, but only find image viewers like Irfan and editors. I'm not interested in editing. It's the unlimited virtual folders, albums/views and the untouched file system I'm after. ninja.gif

I've just learnt there are Android emulators, for example https://www.bluestacks.com/ . I'll try that tonight and see how it works. I have my doubts though.

BlueStacks was rather cool (but huge!). Turned out file operations were rather cumbersome, need for shared folders and stuff, so I uninstalled it again. But for games I imagine it's fun.
