software
on a dell, since retired:
Picasa until I started shooting RAW: picasa deleted EXIF data.
Photoshop great, but not so good for managing

on macbook
lightroom which was really quite excellent through its betas (and presumably 1.0). sadly, when I migrated apps to my new imac, LR stopped working on macbook; uninstalling/reinstalling failed to fix the problem. 1.0 works fine, but I’ve switched to aperture.

on macbook/imac
Apple Aperture also quite excellent.

    Happened upon one of your photos via iGoogle hompepage and started looking at your Flickr…I’m relatively new, but avid photographer and enjoy the heck outta Flickr.

    Saw that you had a blog, and since I thought your photos were interesting, I wondered what type of person Mike Franklin was…

    Seem like a pretty cool guy, intelligent and fellow lover of the photo.

    Just thought I’d leave a blurb here and say that another denizen of cyberspace says “Hi”. Happy New Year and Be Well.
