Image Database

I’ve created an Image Database using Filemaker Pro. This database is being used to keep details on each image in the theatre’s collection. By simply dragging an image file to the database window, the image, name of the image file, it’s size, the dimensions in pixels and its scanned depth, i.e. 5000 dpi are recorded automatically. The creation and modification dates are also input automatically. In the database, there is a drop-down menu to select the photographer’s name, editor’s name and indicate where the original is being stored. We can also add the name of the production, it’s month and year of presentation and then detailed notes on the image, such as who is in it. All of the images scanned so far are in this database but not all of the other information has been entered yet.
