Excire Foto 2024 is the best if:
You are looking for a powerful and reliable photo management software: manage your photos with Excire Foto 2024 and use your favorite app for editing. Keywords can be stored in the photo- or XMP files, so that they can be used in the Windows or Mac Spotlight search. Metadata can also be transferred to apps such as Capture One and Lightroom Classic. Further workflows are described in the Excire Foto tutorials.
Excire Search 2022 is the right choice if:
Adobe Lightroom Classic is your standard photo management software. Our Lightroom Classic Plugin “Excire Search 2022” is fully integrated in Lightroom Classic providing all the information you need to manage your photos and save metadata in photos or XMP files if desired.
The functionalities of Excire Foto and Excire Search are almost identical. Please note, however, that the databases of both products are independent of each other and the images must be initialized for both. Many customers opt for the convenient bundle that provides more flexibility
Note for existing Excire Foto customers: Excire Foto users have to keep in mind for testing that the previous Excire database will be modified when the program is started for the first time. Thus a switch back to older versions is not possible without a backup. We therefore recommend creating a backup before using Excire Foto 2024. How to do this is described here.
