DBGallery 3.0 Ranking & Summary
DBGallery 3.0 description
Take control of your photo collection! DBGallery is loaded with professional features and a photo database foundation. Explore your photo collection via logical views (by year and month, camera, exposure, keywords, etc.) or physical view (folders). You will be able to build collections of weddings, events, vacantions among other categories.
It includes eMail and Website generation, used to communicate photos and data to clients (or family and friends). Photos exported to eMail or Websites may be watermarked. Archived collections are supported, as are client-server office environments. Database benefit: Key data once, use it over and over for years to come for finding photos and including photo data in emails and websites. Tracks view counts for popularity sorting.
Includes interesting graphical reports on your collection. Sports a surprisingly simple interface. In summary, its a whole new and addictive way to search, use and enjoy a photo collection.
- Key Once, Use Over and Over
Once this data is key and stored, it allows searching for groups of images, viewing this data, and generation websites which show the photos and their data. Youd be surprised how quickly data can be entered using the "Edit Multiple Images" feature (see below). The WebGallery allows data to be reused by generating web pages that include the photo and part of its data. Other uses for this data will be found as new features are added.
- Data Searching
Search data based on keywords, subject, author, notes, and description...or all at the same time.
- Logical Views
Logical vs. Physical: A physical view of photos is how they are physically stored in folders (the old way of trying to find photos), whereas logical views are views of how photos may be organized by photo data. They may be organized by camera, for example, or year, month, ISO, number of views, etc. There are many interesting aspects to exploring a photo collection this way. For example, if you typically create a website (or upload your photos some other way) for each trip you take, exploring by year and month typically makes it very easy to go back over time to see find your various trip photos. Or view by keyword list and look for a given city or country (assuming that data has been keyed). These are just two of many more useful scenarios. It best to play with the various logical views to feel the benefits.
- Build Collections
A fast and convenient way to build collections of photos. At any time you are viewing a photo that you feel would fit into a category or collection of photos, simply drag the image to a Quick Collection. To help grasp more clearly what they are, you may think of them as categories, buckets, holding areas, boxes, file cabinets, film rolls, etc. Because everyone thinks of such collections in a different manner like this, the Basic Configuration dialog allows these to be called anything. I.e. you may change "Quick Collections" text throughout the program by naming it "Film Roll", "Box", etc.
Search for a set of photos, or choose a set of folders and images, and press the "Generate Website" button from the main menu. HTML is created, images copied and converted to the size you choose, thumbnails created, and data extracted. Youre asked where to create the site and given a few options such as Title, etc. Where to create the sites means where on a local hard disk, to be transfer to the web later, but it also includes the option of sending the sites files directly to the Web via FTP! Outside DBGallery, this site could be burned onto a CD and given to others who have slow or no Internet access. NOTE: you need you own web space to put the generated files under since DBGallery or GRR Systems does not supply this.
Send photos and a selection of associated data via email. The email has data and the image in the body of the email, with the data just above the image. Advanced options are available such as including the original full size image as attachment along with the smaller image in the body. eMailGallery is a great way to send photos to family and friends(include descriptions to give a complete story), or to send a selection of images to clients for review
Given that the system has database core it can generate profession looking reports. The reports included in this version include Counts by Camera, Author, Subjects, Year to Year, and Time of Year, as well as a number of Stock Agency reports (for those that sell their photos).
