Why no catalogue in photo?

Recommended Posts

The only thing stopping me from adopting Affinity photo as my one stop shop for photo processing is the lack of a library or catalogue feature. I find this odd since Serif used to do a nice little tool called Media Plus that would have done the job well.

As it is, I still have to use Lightroom to catalog my work, so I wind up using it to develop as well. Consequently Affinity only gets used for a fraction of what I'd like to use it for. Surely an import persona couldn't be too hard to add?

alanGmedia,

 

Hello and welcome to the forums. The developers have said that they are working on releasing a DAM. No eta on when it will be released but they have said that they plan on releasing one sometime in the future. If you search the forums for "DAM" you'll find some threads related to the discussion of this.

 

Best regards,

Hokusai

Yes, thanks, lots of requests.

 

Frankly I'm less concerned about features like face recognition etc, I just want to rate and tag my pictures

and access them quickly without resorting to file manager dialogs. The other, smarter, things are nice to have

but low priority compared to the basic import/catalog tools.
