Definitely add me to the list looking for a DAM.
I don't want to tell you how to do you DAM but I'd like to add a couple of requirements... Please can we have:
Support for Albums, Smart albums, Tagging, Rating, Keywords, Annotating, batch rename, etc.
Please, please provide GeoTagging and reverse geo tagging (like HoudanGeo).
Also pretty please, provide the ability to move asset files between drives without loosing them (Aperture did this well, Capture One catalogs don't seem to be able to track moves)
Extra points will be awarded for support image based searches. Give the search engine one image and let it find similar images.
Perhaps there is somewhere we can formally submit requirements or register to be Alpha or Beta testers...
Many thanks Jonathan
