DBGallery is a Digital Asset Management software package. It has a special focus on utilizing image meta-data for finding, exploring and organizing photos. It is a multi-user system for use across an organization. While typically run as on-premises software, since mid-2013 the company has offered it as a SaaS (Software as a Service) cloud-hosted solution. The on-premises software version enables controlled access to the collection via the Internet using a web server plugin.


DBGallery's first public release was December 2007. Since then there have been several major releases. Version 4.0 (Jul 2009) added data presets and GeoTagging. Version 5 (Mar 2012) added group permissions and additional media (audio and video) format support. Version 6 (Aug 2013) supported additional languages in its meta-data. 6.1 (Nov 2013) added email import and a duplicate images finder. 6.5 (Jun 2014) added support for creating custom data fields for tagging and search. 7.0 (May 2015) included the ability to auto-tag images using Reverse Geocoding. Version 8 in April 2018 added major improvements to its PlusWeb web server plugin, including data editing from users' browsers and easy secure public sharing of images.


The graphical interface runs on Microsoft Windows only. Its database and image files may reside on other operating systems, including Linux, Unix, and Mac OS X. It runs on 32 and 64-bit systems.
