From Windows Photo Gallery to Daminion?
As good as that product has been, it is end of life and not officially available for download from Microsoft anymore. There is clearly a risk that it may simply stop working on future versions of windows. So I am looking to find a product which has:
- Very similar functionality to Windows Photo Gallery;
- A capacity to help Photo Gallery users smoothly migrate to a replacement product.
"Smoothly" migrate means that the metadata already collected for the media (be it stored in the media item by Photo Gallery, or in Photo Gallery's pictures.pd6 database)- is "carried across" to the new system in a seamless way.
I expected that several companies providing tools to manage digital media assets would have jumped on the idea of becoming the "go to" product vendor for users of Photo Gallery (now that it is unsupported), but I am really surprised and disappointed to find no products at all seeking to fill this role.
Where is Daminion placed in terms of its ability to provide the "seamless migration" I mentioned above? If Daminion is pursuing a different market, is there another product I should be looking at?
