So, say you shoot in raw. I assume the basic flow is something like:

1. Import to computer (mac/pc)
2. Determine which ones to toss/keep (had to convert to viewable format at this point)
3. Archive originals of keepers (equivalent to keeping the orig negative)
4. Edit photo in app of choice
5. Archive adjusted image
6. Print / share / whatever

I've newly acquired a mac, and am learning my way through iPhoto. It seems a good program for maintaing "albums" once you've reached stage 6, but not for the first bits (it can't do anything with .nef files, for example, and keeps full copies of the original when you edit / crop / etc, so starts using up disk space). It also can only deal with images that are online, not archived on CD etc.

What other apps are good for managing the explosion of image files you invariably end up with?
