My other job is a software developer and I am updating my skills, so I needed a project to play with, so I have been developing some image software, based on what gets posted in the Alamy forum about the time involved in having to edit the image data once uploaded, I have posted the results with little interest  :-[

Another bit of software is SlideShowPro where you have to create the xml, and edit it if you want to sort images on your pc before uploading, so that is another Idea.

I am also looking at an app to just harvesting and organise my own image keywords, I cannot see why I need thousands of keywords, that is a couple of idea's anyone else got any?

here is the Alamy web part:

Here is the backend, what do you think?

Hi, I looked at both videos but are too small and cannot understand what they are about. Maybe it is a kind of front-end to Alamy. If so, it is limited to those that submit there.

I think that there are some posts in this site dealing with management software. To my surprise a lot of people is using Excel. I tried it for a month or so, then realized that was not for me. I revved up to imatch (http://www.photools.com/) which I recommend to those who can stomach the learning curve. Obviously everybody says that their software is easy to use, but few really are.

As for ideas, look at imatch. You may think at a simpler version,  easier to master, for those that have limited needs, or think at imatch on steroids. I find their keywording tools pretty lame although the rest is really top notch. imatch is scriptable, so allow you a few tricks that would be otherwise impossible.
