We are upgrading our Intranet and looking for a local Image Library system that can be intelligently browsed, with central control over download permissions following user request for an image download. Lots of keywords, title, photo size and other attributes, size in kb, photographer acknowledgment, permission history, watermarks etc.

We are looking for a customizable on line digital asset management application. The main use of the program will be to have our customers access drawings, images and finale artwork via the web. Said application will be on our internal network.
