I'm looking into various photo management (DAM) tools, and in my searches Gallery popped up. I've been reading several pages of features and descriptions, but I can't really make out for certain if Gallery would fulfill our requirements.
My main question is, can Gallery edit image files? I'm not thinking of advanced Photoshop-like work, but is it possible to edit keywords (tags), captions, etc from within the Gallery interface, and are these changes written back to the files (as IPTC/EXIF/XMP metadata)?
We need a system where a group of people can access our photo library, make metadata modifications, and these modifications need to be available in the photo files, not in a separate database.
Is this possible with Gallery? And if not, does anybody have any good suggestions for an application that does this? Our preference goes to a web-based application, but desktop applications may also be considered.
