This is my first post here, and I am new to the stuff, so please be understanding of my total lack of knowledge on the issue at hand.
I am looking to purchase and implement a good DAM program for a medium size museum.
We produce an average of 80 000 new images a year.
I was told about Fotoware, Cumulus, Vernon, Piction, Ex Libris and Imagefolio.
Do you have any opinion about these?
Is there any thing else that you would recommend to have a look at?
To be frankly honest with you, I do not really know what too look for in a DAM program.
We want to make the image searchable in an easy and convenient way.
We want other staff than me to be able to use it when I am away.
We would like it to work on Mac and PC.
So far we worked with Iview media Pro, but are not entirely satisfied with it.
A few years ago for another organisation, I used to work with Fotostation, but stoped when I was unable to read the caption entered in Fotostation in the newer version of Photoshop. (I do not know if this is still the case)
Any help that you could give us would be much appreciated.
Thank you for your help and time,
