This software takes on the monumental task of managing all of your digital media -- including photos, of course -- under one umbrella. MediaImpression is made up of about 20 modules that perform different functions, and can be expanded with additional functions as ArcSoft makes more modules available. All of the modules are integrated into a single interface. The basic functions let you capture, import, browse, search, and organize media files. There are also tools for creating projects featuring photos, videos, and music, as well as sharing tools for exporting media and projects to Web sites. There's a module that integrates with Google Earth to let you geocode photos by dragging them onto a location, as well as movie- and slideshow-editing tools, photo-editing tools, and strong metadata support for adding IPTC data, ratings, and tags.
Available in Windows and Mac versions (although a few of the modules are not supported on a Mac).
