Digital image library solution?

Posted in Educational Tech Teaching Diary on 23 - January 2007 at 07:27 PM (15 years ago). 11 views.

Our art department wants to scan about 1500 35mm slides. We'll be scanning at fairly high resolution, so each file will be around 5MB. We are looking for a digital image library - web-based - which will let us upload and categorize our pictures. We would like something like Flickr or Picassa. We'd like casual user management (single login for the whole school, and a teacher login to edit / change upload slides). Availability is important, as is optimization. We would like to be able to download original file size (like Xanga) or a derivative thereof. We're a school, so inexpensive == good. As this collection of 35mm slides represents the heart of our art department, we are interested in data integrity, and long-term storage. Please contact me here with any suggestions. Thank you!
