Right Click

The new Contextual Tagging feature makes using your favorite tags as easy as selecting photos and right clicking.

QromaDrop helps you create a Master Folder, but what exactly is it? Simply put, it's a single folder containing the full resolution masters of all of your photos, placed in a logical date based folder structure. Adding metadata tags for the date, location and people in your photos means that they can be quickly search today, tomorrow and for future generations. Maintaining a Master Folder makes it easy to quickly create backups of your photos to external drives. Cloud services that purport to save your photos for life are in their infancy, yet many of them been either shut down, sold off, or have dubious new privacy policies. A Master Folder of your digital photos that is regularly backed up is the perfect way to future proof your memories to ensure that they live as least as long as our paper photos.
