Recommend a good Media Management tool for Mac?

Asked by LaMaison (72points) June 12th, 2008

I need a good Media Management tool for the Mac. Something that can catalog my images files, be it illustrations, stock photos, web site graphics, video clips, flash files, etc. I came across one a while back but can’t remember the name. And there’s Microsoft’s Expression. Media 2

Adobe Bridge handles all that I think. Got pretty upgraded in its last version. comes with the Adobe CS3 suite. Check it out. Bridge is the free part of the suite, maybe it can be used standalone.

Like Bento from FileMaker or like an editing program?

LaMaison's avatar

Neither, I ‘m looking for something to manage a large collection of media files, PNG, PSD, JPG, GIF, FLASH, and some video. I don’t need to edit them within the tool, just browse, search, organize, tag.

Thats what Bento is for. Not really editing but it organizes and manages your files.

Same with Adobe Bridge dude. It does not edit files, just organizes….

@HeNkiSdaBro, Yes I know about Adobe Bridge, as I have CS3. Thanks.

I find Adobe Bridge a little clunky and not very Mac like, and I was kind of looking for the name of another Mac only tool I found once, but can’t remember the name, and I could not find it searching. The only thing I remember it was a Media Manager for images and video, and that it was given a 4 or 4.5 star from MacWorld.

@swimmindude, I didn’t realize Bento did this, I thought it was just some database front-ends for FileMaker.

And there is Microsoft’s Expression Media, but unless I hear something good about it, I don’t even want to install the demo.

OK, then you already know about Bridge. Sorry for the somewhat short comment. Hope you find the one you look for, let us know if you find it!
