Microsoft's iView MediaPro vs Adobe Lightroom mhoule Silver Note Writer [C: 3 W: 0 N: 30] (286)::2007-04-27 15:32
I want to get my thousands of pictures better organized...so I am looking for a goor Digital Asset Management software to be able to classify them and do basic editing.

I want opinions on these 2 players in DAM software : iView Media Pro (Microsoft) and Lightroom (Adobe), both sold for around 200 $. I hesitate between the two, they seem to offer similar functions.

So if you have some advices on these software, please let me know.

Thanks.

Doesn't Photoshop have something like that? I think PhotoShop Elements has a basic thing like that, too. Think I'd go with Adobe, myself, if that's all you want. What you'll be looking for (as I do) is ease-of-use vs. features.

Bonjour Marcel,

Je ne sais pas lequel est meilleur, j'ai moi-même 14,000 photos à classer. Ils sont dans Photoshop Elements, mais sans classement... je vais essayer le "trial version" de Lightroom, disponible en download gratuitement sur le site de Adobe, si cela peut t'intéresser. J'ignore si cela vaut le coût de payer encore 200$ pour classer ou rester avec Elements, mais je vais essayer. Bonne chance!

Try before you buy is usually best. Check whether you can download trial versions of either (or both) these software packages - and have a play with them.

Failing that, go down to your local Apple store and ask to have their product demonstrated to you.

I just bought my fiancee an i-Mac and she loves it and all the software on it. Chances are that if she wanted something similar to you, she'd want something built for the Mac.
