    I’m going to be digitizing a lot of sports memorabilia for the next few weeks/months/years and am trying to wrap my head around a few things.  While I will do a lot in Lightroom and/or CaptureOne, I need to figure out a way that I can hand back a self-contained set of files that the object owners can see/interact with.  It gets even more involved with the idea of exporting items to submit to teams, leagues, or hall of fame orgs.

    Products or projects I am aware of so far include Tropy & darktable, and I’ll check out Excire as well.  Toss in PhotoMechanic Plus as an option.  What else have folks heard of?

    Longevity is huge, along with the export with metadata.

    Take a look at this.  I am working with it to see if it is worthy of a review and I am pretty impressed.  https://cyme.io/peakto-photo-organizer-software/

    They also make a great catalog converter.

    I’m interested to see what cyme can do – there’s some serious legacy catalogs that I have been dragging my feet on.

    To loop everyone in on things I’ve found:

    DSpace – https://dspace.lyrasis.org/

    Archivematica – https://www.archivematica.org/en/

    Atom – https://www.accesstomemory.org/en/

    ICA – AtoM – https://www.ica-atom.org/

    Archivematica & Atom are from a single entity, and ICA-AtoM has transioned to AtoM.  I love the AtoM name – Access to Memory.

    The capture is the fun stuff, it’s the metadata and details that link everything together for others to research from.

    I need to write up the process I’m going thru & how it comes out.

    One client has a large personal art collection done by a deceased family member – some are huge 6’x6′ pieces.  Another has a huge sports memorabilia collection.  My hope is the efforts on the sports side will allow me access to other holders of memorabilia & then we get into the fun of who has what in what condition.

    The next level is something that will work with https://poly.cam scans – some memorabilia like autographed balls and such.
