Digital Asset Management (DAM) with Gallery2
|Posted: Fri, 2005-12-09 23:17|
Does anybody use Gallery2 as a DAM? I am specifically concerned with using Gallery2 to distribute photos to news desks in Europe. The process is very simple, but unique. Once an image is uploaded to a Gallery2 folder, it will then need to be sent via FTP from the server to the client's FTP servers worldwide. Has anybody heard of Gallery2 being used in this manner? We would still want a web-based gallery, but some clients subscribe to the service and will need immediate access to the images on their local FTP servers. Photographers will be working world-wide and uploading images to various folders immediately after post-processing. The goal is to get them to upload only once, and have the server initiate the other FTP connections.
We've thought about CRON jobs, but this must be administered by everyday users, and we want to make sure that there are no partial files uploaded.
Please advise. We are also evaluating http://www.netxposure.com which does this natively. It is a very common practice in the photographer/newsroom/advertising business.
Thanks so much in advance!
