Can you help me to reorganize my photos?

Until last weekend, I was perfectly satisfied with my photo management workflow. But something made me doubt…

Starting with my first MacBook, I started using iPhoto to manage my photos. iPhoto is a very handy tool, especially for people that do not need a lot of bells and whistles. With a minimum amount of time, you can get your photo’s organized the way you want without knowing a lot of computers.

But all of the above also has a side affect. I’m starting to get a lot of events and photos and it’s getting difficult for me to keep a clear view on al my pictures. When moving pictures from one event to another I get frustrated because I have to scroll up and down in my event list to find the event I am looking for. It seems impossible to get a decent list with all my events in iPhoto. This causes me to have duplicate events and looking for photos without finding them.

I don’t want to say iPhoto is bad because I am convinced that without iPhoto I won’t even notice these problems. Without iPhoto, my pictures would be spread all over the place.

So now I’m looking for something else but before moving all my pictures, I want to know what tool will help me to get my pictures organized again. I need to be able to organize them by date and event. Sorting, renaming and quick edit would be nice too.

I want to ask you to let me know in the comments what tool you use and why. If you can add the strong and weak points, that would be nice.
