The installation of DBGallery is easy and intuitive. You can place the program files where you want them. The first time that you run DBGallery you are led through the installation of the MySQL database system, which is the core data storage system used to store photo data. Make sure that you follow the MySQL Server Installation Instructions.

The first thing we need to know is what is the purpose of DBGallery. DBGallery is a database tool to aid you in organizing, viewing and searching your photo collection. The photo files are stored in their original locations with a pointer to them stored in the database. You can drag and drop entire folders into DBGallery.

Well the operation of DBGallery is simplicity itself. Like I said above "You can drag and drop entire folders into DBGallery" After you have that done you add the information to the database about the photos. Once that information is added you can then search the database easily and re-locate images.

The interface of DBGallery is also simplicity itself, a really intuitive easy to understand interface. You have space in the Viewing Window to add Title, Author, Subject, Keywords, and Notes. DBGallery also automatically imports the Exif information of each photo, which can be really useful. As a matter of fact you are going to wonder after awhile how you got along without DBGallery. Plus you can also add to the DBGallery database images that are not actually stored on your computer, photos that are on CDs, DVDs, removable drives and even on tape can be added. For you pros you can even add to the database information about Agencies you have submitted photos to.

In conclusion at a mere $19.95 DBGallery is one tool that you will find indispensable for any photographer amateur or professional.
