The Dashboard

The Dashboard provides an overview the collection.  It includes overall stats as well as recent activity, which are live links to immediately return to.  The ‘widgets’ that are shown are configurable via a drag and drop interface, allowing the setting of size and position within the dashboard.

Editing Many Images’ Metadata Simultaneously

This “multi-edit” addition has the follow features:
1) View Multiple Existing Values: Whenever there are existing multiple data values for an entry field there is a circled ‘i’ shown. Press the circled ‘i’ to see all existing data values.
2) Map Markers: There is a separate marker on the map for each image that has a GPS location.
3) Easily Append Text: Add to exist data simply by typing new info after existing text. If there is a (multiple values), type anything after it and the new value is appended to the end of that field in each image.
4) See the images being edited: A thumb for each image selected is shown in the top left corner, along with the image count.


An Excellent Image Viewer

Image viewing is a key aspect of any image management system.  DBGallery’s viewer is excellent, with many awesome features such as a dark theme, lower thumbs bar, data easily available via the Info tab, a slideshow mode, full screen with uncluttered thumbs only mode, and many more.

Image Sharing

Sharing images.

The top window (white) is the sharing confirmation window.  It shows what the person sharing the images sees after selecting thumbs and pressing Share.  The window behind it is what is displayed to the user who clicks the sharing link.  It includes the full image and thumbs of all shared images at the bottom.  Pressing Info (top right) would show image metadata selected to show with shared images.

Data Layout Settings

Choosing the Data Layout.

Drag and drop metadata fields to choose which data appears in the various areas of the system, and their order.  In this screenshot, drag fields from the left to right to add that field to the Image Preview data area.  Drag from right to left to remove a data field.  Choose the data shown or edited in Full Data View, under main gallery thumbs, Sharing view Info tab, and other areas.


Choosing which data is shown where can be important: when sharing images decide the metadata your staff or external clients see.  Choose which custom fields are editable and the order they’re place can make tagging intuitive and convenient.

Maps View

Map View

View image collections, folders, or search results across a map.  This is a great feature when your company photo assets were shot all over the country.  Click a marker for a popup of the image.


With more and more photos shot with phones or cameras with GPS coordinate capabilities, using maps to find and browse images is becoming more popular and useful.

Audit Trail

Audit Trail

Understand what your image collection users are doing within the collection via activity monitoring.


Off-brand images being added?  Are sales staff sharing outdated promotional videos?  Incorrect metadata being used or images deleted?  As a collection administrator, be in to know on system usage and changes.


Automatic Metadata Tagging

Automatic Metadata Tagging

During upload object recognition will tag objects in an image. We’ll also reverse-geocode to add address data to photos which have a GPS stamp.  Results example for both are circled in red in the screenshot.
