    The title 'Free software' is not correct but no problem.
    The interesting (to me) software mentioned Photools Imatch is something I had not come across. This seems to be a DAM aimed at photographers but useable for all sorts of digital files.I wonder if any forum members or AP staff have any experience of it.
    The other software mentioned Affinity Photo is something that I already use in conjunction with Affinity Publisher.

    I am a very happy user of IMatch and have been for many years. It works well, does what I want it to do (and so much more that I don't use much of). It has extensive metadata management facilities, again, most of which I don't use...
    I have scans (jpg + tiffs), raw (cr2), and a variety of other jpgs (camera generated or cr2 processed), dxo sidecars and some camera mp4s managed within my database.

    The trial version (databases created older than 30 days are read only) is fully featured - give it a go and see if it works for you.

    I used IMatch for 2/3 years before I moved to LR. It is a very capable program and customisable but not intuitive (to me) and the interface was not great. I had an issue with raw files but cannot remember the details. Worth a try.
