    Hi Carl, I have enjoyed and learned from your YouTube videos how to use Metadata for my needs. I viewed all your videos related to DAM programs and am a PM user. Recently I discovered a new DAM, which has actually been around a long long time and as I DAM, I feel that IMatch from PhoTools is an excellent tool. It has a similar approach to PM when it comes to template tagging, but it goes quite a bit further that PM when it actually comes to management. I have played with the PM6+ beta, but that program, as good and FAST as it is, still lags far behind. As with all good tools, there is a bit of a learning curve with IMatch, but Mario, the developer, could not be more responsive on the forum. For every obstacle I have had in the past, some one else has also had, and IMatch seems to be able to solve them all. I’d be interested in seeing what you thing.

      Hi Dennis, I just took a look at IMatch’s webpage. It looks interesting. It strikes me as a bit more along the lines of a business DAM as opposed to the very photographer-oriented DAMs like ON1, Lightroom (and soon Photo Mechanic +) I particularly like that it seems to be standards compliant and that they have a server-based version. Maybe it eluded my attention because it’s Windows-only. We now have a Windows machine in house, so I think I’ll take a look in the coming months. – Carl
