Image Library software - suggestions needed
6 months ago

Hi Guys.  Some help needed....

Current setup/workflow: Mac Pro. Ingest and pick in photo Mechanic. Edit in CS6. All files stored locally. Once done files are copied to my Synology DS412+ for storage.

Here comes the problem. My library is getting bigger and bigger. So whenever I need to find something it may take a while since Photo Mechanic needs to read each folder before displaying the content.

I thought Lightroom could solve this. Making a small preview stored locally on my Mac Pro but it keeps crashing on import...

Any suggestions? On either an alternative to Lightroom or a fix to the crashing issue.

I am affraid Aperture will make to large library file.(?)

An extra bonus would be the possibility to store the library/catalog file(s) in the dropbox folder. That way I could access the same library on my macbook pro..

Thanks
