Managing client images

Paul Boag

I’m looking for a good Mac app to help me catalogue last quantities of images. Images would be stored on our server, but added via our Macs – we receive a lot of images from clients and need to be able to retrieve them quickly when asked. So we’d love a Mac app that we could drop a load of images onto, it would copy them to our server, and prompt us to tag them with keywords (client, keywords, project, date) and then it would do all the rest. Then we could search using the app and up come the pictures.

I have to be honest this post has stumped me. Maybe you can help.

My initial thought was that Pixa App might fit the bill. After all it allows group sharing, easy tagging and has great search. However, it doesn’t support storing of images on your own server. It only allows the use of Dropbox or Google Drive.

Pixa App is one of the best image catalogues available, but it doesn’t quite meet Andy’s needs. Can you suggest an alternative?

Admittedly Pixa would be perfect for most people, but can you think of an alternative that will help Andy?
