It would be really nice to hear what Peter thinks today of Media Pro, or the other options out there.
I'm very curious also

I downloaded the demo and will be trying it out today. I was really excited to see it allegedly supports networking. If it can really handle multiple users that would be a HUGE factor for us!! I realize this is almost a year later but have you tried it out?

Hi Roelef,

Sorry I never responded!

I haven't posted on the Phase One site about this issue yet. I did some searches in their knowledge base and found this article:
http://www.phaseone.com/Search/Article.aspx?articleid=1168&languageid=1

I tried the suggested steps and it unfortunately did not fix my problem. However, in the course of playing around with the problematic files I noticed that they did not seem to have an embedded color profile at all. I opened some up in Photoshop and assigned a color profile (after discussing it with a friend in publishing I selected EUROSCALE COATED v2), saved and closed.

The new thumbnails in EM after a rebuild look good! I tried other CMYK profiles in Photoshop, but this seemed to look the best in EM. I searched EM for all CMYK images with no color profile, opened in Photoshop, and ran a custom Action to assign the color profile, save, close.

It doesn't totally solve my problem as I still have wonky looking CMYK jpegs (I don't want to do a lossy save after assigning a color profile, and I haven't found a way to assign a color profile without having to re-save the file after to make it stick.) But my tiffs look good, so that's a positive step!

I agree with all. I check back here often and wish there were more updates. I don't think DAM is dead, but the forum seems to be. Seems like when new questions get asked the person is most often left hanging (unless Roelef weighs in, thanks Roelef!)

Our Expression Media system is creaking along at work and I've been trying, and discarding, various alternates (cross out Photo Supreme, trying a demo of Neofinder today.)  It would be really nice to hear what Peter thinks today of Media Pro, or the other options out there.

The DAM-Software makes me sick. No solutions fits all. The one DAM-Software is in one point perfect, but looses completely in another point.

My experience.
+ that is the point, why I choose this software
- this is the point, I am leafing it.

Microsoft Expression 2 / Media Pro:
+ At least DAM-Software
- to often unstable
- the written hierarchical keywords can't be read from some other softwares (like idimager)

IDimager 5 Pro
+ can a lot
+ "Set" of hierarchical keywords
+ Export hierarchical keywords also in IPTC and Exif (I can choose if UTF-8, Ansii)!!
- no drag and drop to QuarkXpress (very important for me)
- no IPTC:codedcharacterset=utf8 was been written. If I am importing the IPTC to others software, there are mismatch and a lot of keywords are shown wrong.
- bugs AND death product

Photo Supreme
+ "Set" of hierarchical keywords
+ Export hierarchical keywords also in IPTC and Exif...
- ... but only in Ansii?
- no drag and drop to QuarkXpress (very important for me)
- no IPTC:codedcharacterset=utf8 was been written. If I am importing the IPTC to others software, there are mismatch and a lot of keywords are shown wrong.
- shiny GUI
- no multi-monitor-support

Daminion
+ can import terrible huge folders with pdf/doc/tiff/gif/jpg/.... without hanging or crushing down (the only software, which solved this yet) !!!!
+ I like the gui
+ drag & drop to QuarkXpress
+ Export hierarchical keywords also in IPTC and Exif...
- ... but only in ANSI ?
- in the development (no filemanager now, but it will come)

iMatch 3.6
+ Powerful
- an complicated
- didn't write the hierarchical keywords in IPTC/Exif; Maybe there a scripts there, but I am not a friend of scripts, sorry about that.

iMatch 5
-  :Smiley Yeah, maybe, on day..... But the amount of my images are increasing every day.

Currently I working with IDimager 5 Pro for my privat images and Daminion for my work-folders.

I've been working on a Lightroom issue with Canon files with the 800 tech support number since late August, without any real progress.

Does anyone have a contact name or number of someone I can speak with in the US.  A large part of my problem is that every time I call, I need to start talking about the issues from ground zero, despite a case log that the support people have access to.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanx,

Mark S. Kornbluth

I would perhaps ask if DAM is dead? Lightroom seems to have taken over the world, and from what I've read good digital asset management principles don't have much place anymore. Take Scott Kelby's latest book on LR4. Awful..

Peter seems to be doing a lot of Lightroom seminars. Perhaps he needs to write a Lightroom book that takes all his DAM knowledge and puts it into a Lightroom context.

Media Pro doesn't seem to be setting the world on fire. I don't see any new players. Looks like Lightroom's it. Or just doing it manually through Bridge...

In any case, I think we should pay our respects and move on. I can't see this forum being revived. Peter?

Arlen, Roelof

I agree with both of you
