Tom -

NSCS Pro is the best of the simple filing programs and I've tried them 
all!  If you want one that will also produce portfolios, look at Image AXS 
Pro from Dascorp.  It's available from Light 
Impressions.  I have just upgraded to Inview/Stockview by Hindsight because it includes a lot of extra software 
applicable to selling stock photography but is much more expensive.

Hope this helps!
