Photo cataloging/management solution for small business
I'm about to be tasked with setting up a way to manage thousands of high res images coming in from various photo shoots for our upcoming projects. We are a Mac-based office, and have an Xserve as our local file/web server which we will install something on.
- Ideally it'd be something hosted locally from the Xserve so that it's easily updated via the file server. Easiest would be an app that helps import batches of new images, or has a folder where we can drop new batches directly. Online web services are not ideal as we'd like to house all the data locally.
- Could be software-based, ie if there's a package that has a server app we can install on the Xserve and run client apps on local machines to access, OR could be web-based, ie image gallery software I install on the Xserve, which we could access in or out of the office (external access would be most helpful). Or, software with remote access capabilities of some sort.
- Main thing is that it's easy to browse and search thumbnails, view larger preview on screen, then download full size image when ready
- Ideally individual users would be all be able to tag/organize content
- Super extra bonus points if users can create their own lightbox/favorites to select images for a particular project, and save their settings etc.
- Simple, clean, easy to use interface would be excellent. We don't need something that does 1000 things, just the above things really well.
Thanks for any and all suggestions!
Since I originally wrote this up, I've found Extensis Portfolio, which looks like it might be a contender. Still looking at all options/alternatives!
and now I've found some other possibilities as well -
Locally hosted web-based interface, desktop tool for adding images, plugin for Bridge
Locally hosted web-based interface, open source/ free
Con - hosted
Xinet WebNative Suite
