Hey guys/gals...I'm currently looking for a better Photo Management Solution for my company.  Currently we use ACDSEE and I am trying to find something else to use since ACDSEE isn't really ment for large Photo Databases.  We like the look and feel of it, but would also like to see what else is out there.  Pretty much we are looking for software that would be centralized (preferred), that allows creation of catagories and tagging.  It doesnt have to have a photo editior built in.  Any suggestions would be great.  I did look at MS Expressions but that isnt really what we are looking for.  Thanks,

jtrabert,

It's a good question. Without knowing more about your business and workflow, it's hard to make an actual recommendation, but I can provide some product suggestions for you to look at. If you want more of a recommendation, tell us more about how many images, how large, what you do with them, and what you need (or would like) your management software to do.

Thanks lherrou, more would have helped.  I work for a Design & Build firm who take lots of  pictures of previous jobsites so they can showcase them for potential buyers.  Our current ACDSEE database holds roughly 6,5000 pictures with about 490 folders and about 10-15 catagories.  Our current image library is roughly 4GB in size.  The salesman have a remote copy of it on their laptop to show customers when they have appointments at their home, and we also have a presentation room on site that showcases them as well

What ACDsee product/version are you using, and in what areas is ACDSee NOT meeting your needs?

Currently we are using ACDSee 8.1 Build 98 I did notice that they have a "Pro Business" version.  It is currently meeting our needs but in the near future we plan on expanding the size of our database and photos as well.  I have checked ACDSee's forums and some of their users were reporting database problems with larger ones saying it wasn't a good program to handle them.  If you have any personal experience with it, I would love to hear it.

Sorry, I was late getting back to you. One of my clients has been using the latest Pro Business version, and moving all files over. Because of that, their library is not quite as big as yours yet (they only have about 40% of files moved over), but they have not encountered any issues.
