    My boss' wife has asked me for a recommendation for digital photo management software. Being as I'm a Mac user and she's a PC user, I don't have a clue, and need you guys' help.

    Ideally, she is looking for:

    1. "scrapbook" functions that make date and comments easily entered and displayed.

    2. Slideshows that can be exported as freestanding media files (i.e., don't require the app to run but rather run as a self contained .exe or are playable in a common [near universal] movie file format).

    3. Allows "soundtrack" audio files to be included and exported with slideshow.

    4. Is easy to use for the "average" home computer user.

    Thanks for your suggestions, TBer's! :)

    Thanks! Any other suggestions? As with my "regular duties" in my job, I feel obliged to get three bids (metaphorically speaking, I mean that I want to present more than one option).

    Any other suggestions?

    don't make me play the "it's so easy with a Mac" card, people! ;) :D
