Picasa does everything thing I want in a light photo editor (cropping, highlight and shadow correction, roation (90 degree and free)) and browser except
it does not support multiple computers using the same meta data
. My fricken database has been corrupted again (apparently it doesn't handle 200K+ photos very well either) so I'm looking for an alternative that does support syncing between multiple computers and network storage.

My photos are currently arranged into subfolders by date so a program that either keeps metadata in a single location; with a subfolder of photos or; less ideally, written to the photo itself is the kind of thing we are looking for.
I not willing to consider Flickr
I currently also use XnView for some editing tasks but it's browsing function leaves a lot to be desired. I also hope for my new software to have something similar to Picasa's pin a group of pictures and export to a folder feature.
Windows Live Photo Gallery
looks like a good candidate but synchronization appears to be limited to 20 folders and requires syncing via Microsoft servers
both of which would be show stoppers. Am I reading their information correctly?
