I am seeking recommendations for software to help organize thousands of scanned documents.
Most are saved as JPG (JPEG) images, although some are saved as PDF files. It is okay if your recommendation only handles one of those file types.
What I need to do is view a thumbnail of each file large enough to get a general idea of its contents. If I can't determine the file contents by the thumbnail, I need to be able to click (or double-click) on the file to show a larger rendering.
Once I have determined the contents of the file, I need to rename it from within your recommended application. Then I need to move the file to one of many folders in order to sort them. I would like to be able to quickly do this for thousands of files, preferably all within a single application.
Many of the original documents had 3-8 pages, which are now stored as 3-8 separate JPG images or PDF files. As such, the application needs to support multiple-selection when moving the files so all the files from one document can be quickly moved together.
The application must be compatible with Windows 7. It must be free of charge (gratis) or no more than the cost of 2 milkshakes.
I have tried IrfanView and xnView to perform this task. Although they are both excellent pieces of software, I found them lacking in their ability to perform this tedious and mind-numbing task quickly and efficiently. If you think either of those is the best tool for the job, feel free to post that as your answer with an explanation of why you feel one of those tools is the most efficient choice.
