    I can't tell you anything about the program, I don't like Apple products.

    I thought about using a software to keep inventory but decided this would not be very useful for my specific needs. What I decided to do is make digital contact sheets of my negatives, which I can then file separately from the negatives, with a reference number back to them of course. You can do this simply by placing the negative in standard 8X10 negafile sheets and scan all of them at once. You print this out and have a ready guide to all of the negatives on the sheet, with some indication of how they will print -- though that will depend on process.

    I have started to do this with ULF negatives as well, though these obviously have to be done one at a time. One you scan them you can print a contact sheet proof from Photoshop. I archive these scans, which can be fairly large, on DVD.

    Personally I find this approach fits my needs much better because the contact sheets provide both a reference to the original negatives, plus a visual guide that is very useful in helping me decide if the negative is worth printing, and if so, what kind of contrast and tonal controls need to be used.
