  • How to share embedded metadata across computers, if possible?

    Hello! I'm relatively new to ACDSee, but my office is planning to use the program to tag/catalog photos with things like location, project name, people, keywords, etc. We're using ACDSee Photo Studio Pro 2021.

    Our photo library is quite large and stored on Dropbox, which I have synced to my work computer in the office. Because this photo library is so large, this project is supposed to be split between myself and at least one colleague of mine who works in one of our other offices. Basically, I was wondering whether or not it is possible for us to work on cataloging and tagging photos on our separate workstations located in different offices and then somehow share that metadata with each other so that we both have all tagged photos on both of our respective computers. It would also be helpful to do this so I can do this work on my home computer and then make it available on my computer in the office.


    Is this possible? If so, what might be the best way to do this? Any help is appreciated, thank you!

    Whilst individual users have reported varying degrees of success in being able to use ACDSee Pro or Ultimate on more than one PC on a home network (using various approaches, for instance having individual databases on each PC), AFAIK it doesn't officially support proper multi-user business environments.. .

    You perhaps should contact ACDSee direct as they appear to be able to provide multi-user business support. See https://www.acdsee.com/en/solutions/#workgroup where they state "ACDSee Workgroup provides your team with a multi-platform Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution. Collaborate on collections of images, videos, and documents using a shared database with keywords, categories, and metadata. Set groups and user-based permissions. We have self-hosted and private cloud DAM solutions available to meet your needs.
