Digital Asset Management Options?

  • 1.  Digital Asset Management Options?

    Posted 18 days ago

    Hello everyone,

    Happy New Year!

    Do you have any great options that you like for digital asset management?

    https://mopinion.com/digital-asset-management-dam-software/

    Here's an article that provides an overview of different options.

    We were also looking into Pics.io. https://pics.io/

    We currently have our images in Google Drive, but it is not easy to find what images we are looking for since they are not tagged.

    Thank you!

    Roshani

    Hi, Roshani.

    We have been using Libris, which is a product owned by PhotoShelter, for about two years. It's fantastic! Our photographers (vendors) can upload shots directly into our system. I am not the administrator of the program in my department but can connect you if you'd like more information about our experience, etc.

    Good luck!
    Cindy

    I have not used this, but someone I know who manages video archives for a large television channel (so not only are they dealing with a ton of footage, episodes, films, etc. but also credits and rights and all sorts of metadata) raves about Collective Access (https://www.collectiveaccess.org).  I believe it was originally developed for museums and archives, but the structure of having to catalogue things that aren't all in the same format (like books), including pictures of and metadata for those items, lends itself to digital asset management as well.  It is, however, open source, so that may or may not be something you're interested in.
