Suggestions for photo/project management sites?

Hi there folks — I was hoping some of you might have some knowledge or opinions regarding some of the many online photo/project management websites that are out there. I’m trying to find the right place for a large project that working on along with several other partners. I need the site to not only allow for file uploads and project organization, but also have a good interface for viewing and editing photography from multiple editors. Does this exist? I’m familar with sites like basecamphq.com, which is great for project management, but not graphic oriented. Is there something out there that combines project functionality (basecamp, etc.) with portfolio/image editing (smugmug, pbase, etc.)?? Thanks in advance. Best, -John

You could try the Digital Railroad, which has the features you’re looking for (though it ain’t cheap).  Many Lightstalkers and some agencies (including VII and Redux)  use it.  Here’s mine, as an example.

Have you seen flickr?  (www.flickr.com)  They’ve got some pretty nice organizational tools.   I guess it depends on what you mean by "editing."  It is  designed to allow multiple users to comment on photos.  However, you’ve got to have access to the account to upload or edit images.  the accounts seem to be aimed at a single user, but I don’t see why you couldn’t just share the password with whoever’s working on your project.

Something in the works for blueeyes? —Jake

Actually Jacob (and John), flickr has the ability to only allow “invited” guests of the user to view the photograph owner’s images (there are different levels of ‘privacy’ available & even better the image owner can set up “private groups” so that only those belonging in the group can see those images shared, comment on them, or whatever.

And that’s in their free membership area, by the way.

Still, don’t know if this is the site which might work best for your project, but for the price — it might be worth a look-see: www.flickr.com

Thanks for your replies — Digital Railroad is definitely not in the ballpark of the kind of site that I’m looking for… from what I understand its geared towards gaining exposure for work and being able to sell it, which I don’t need or want to pay for… this is about finding a home for managing a big web project that several people are working on, one that in particular concerns photography. More specifically I’m looking for a private multiple user photo-editing account that allows for (best possible scenario) managing different sorts of files, tasks, to-do lists as well. I’ve checked out FlickR and I think its probably the way to go (the price is certainly right) though it doesn’t have the extra features. Maybe the best thing I can do is connect a FlickR account to a MT blog and try and make that work. Anyway, thanks for the ideas.

Best, – John
