Web Access to DBGallery
When it comes to organizing and categorizing pictures, and if I’m judging on a scale of 1-10, I give dbGallery a 10, and second place gets a 4.

Need to get a DBGallery photo collection accessible via the web? There are a number of options.
1) Self Hosting
2) DBGallery fully hosted in the over the Internet.
3) File Synchronization
Need a very flexible system where any office can share files and each has DBGallery running? Or need to work in the field and add files and data while not connected to the office? This option would use a seperately paid for file synchronization service such as DropBox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, and SugarSync. This move advanced option is used in combination with either of those above. If you have remote locations where everyone needs to synchronize files almost instantly and seamlessly in the background, this is an option to consider.
- Excellent file synchronization.
- Works excellently for working off-line or remotely with DBGallery.
- Flexibility enabling anyone anywhere to drop files to shared folders.
- Extra costs beyond DBGallery. Typically $5 - $15 / month extra, although between 3 - 7 GB are offered for free.

What does the website look like?
GRR Systems, Inc. has a DBGallery setup with approximately 55,000 images. A small portion of it is opened up to the internet as a sample website to show how it would look. Depending on your login you'll have access to different groups of files. In the demo scenario setup we pretend there is a company administrator, a legal dept, an engineering dept, and a marketing dept. Each has their own specific access, and there is a folder which is shared by all groups.
