Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone could help me with something that I have no clue on where to start.

I currently work for an animal shelter photographing adoptable animals and other things. We store photos on a local NAS that almost everyone has access to. The Media department uses a lot of my photos for shelter newsletters, adverts, the website etc. I get asked a lot of I have a particular photo of a particular type of animal with a particular "look" and I always have to scrounge my memory as well as the giant database that we have to see if I have it. I was wondering if anyone knew of a software or some way to "tag" photos with key words such as "brown", or "Labrador retriever", etc, and allow anyone else, on any network connected computer to search for the tags. I have tried tagging photos just through windows explorer, but our NAS is a little slow and we have so many photos that it takes too long and it doesn't always work.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks in advanced,

I use Lightroom it works well the other Option that I can think of is a software called Photo Mechanic which will embed keywords into raw files...
Good luck
