Re: NeoFinder turns out to be a great DAM solution

Hello: For web gallery functionality, I've used Zenfolio for more than 10 years. https://en.zenfolio.com  It's feature set it well beyond rudimentary and the yearly cost is marginal given it's feature set. You can keep it simple, or build a complete platform complete with e-commerce functionality.  For much of my assignment work, it has become an on-line archive for image files delivered to the client.

I don't think this is what the poster who commented on this feature was looking for

It was just a way of exporting from a DAM a ready made HTML page of images to upload to  an existing web site, as is available from Media Pro.

I believe you are correct but what I have done with Zenfolio is build a quick image gallery in Zenfolio and then embed the link to that gallery either in an email to my client or add it to a webpage as a hyperlink.

One of the benefits is, once the client has the link they can download any image they want or even purchase an image if  these features are enabled by the owner of the site. Very flexible and very reasonably priced.

Exactly my thought. The last time that I published my own HTML galleries was around 2008. After switching to SmugMug, I realized that I should’ve done that years earlier.

Where did you see that promise? Just curious. I respect Photomechanic and figure they will set a high bar for DAM performance (if they actually finish it!!).

Promise came from Kirk Baker, Senior Software Engineer at Camera bIts, on the Photo Mechanic help forum a couple of weeks ago.

The quote was in response to a question about "PM6 / Catalog" release. The cynic in me interpreted that as PM6. Given they've been working on it supposedly for over 2.5 years maybe. It's still 32bit IIRC as well. http://forums.camerabits.com/index.php?topic=10179.0

Nice. I wouldn't be surprised if they announce PM6 at PhotoPlus at end of October.

Ok, I see what you mean, I suppose how useful this is depends on what the OP was looking for.
