TRI-EDRE is proud to announce the availability of Tri-CATALOG 6.0.3
and of Tri-CATALOG Import (to import data base of previous versions)

December 12, 2006 – Tri-CATALOG analyzes and catalogues an unlimited
number of volumes (external and internal hard disks, remote disks,
CDs, DVDs, cartridges, etc.) and folders, and saves the collected
information in its data base (list of files and folders, thumbnail
for the pictures, date, size, Exif and IPTC data, etc.).

Then, you can visualize the contents of analyzed volumes, browse in
the folders, display pictures, show information for each file and
picture, and run searches despite the original volume is present or
not in your machine. The only difference, if the original volume is
not present, is that Tri-CATALOG will not be able to display real
picture, but only the thumbnail that was created and saved during the

The contents of analyzed volumes can be accessed very fast, as there
is no need to scan again the volume to display pictures or launch

At any time, you can enrich the data base with comments and keywords
for each file or picture. Comments and keywords are displayed and can
be used to retrieve your data.

The data base can be reserved for your own use, or can be shared with
other users.
