Photography Question 
 

Portraiture Photography Business Software


Up until now I have used Quicken to keep track of the money coming and going from my studio, but that's all it tracks. But I am interested in a software program that will allow me to track and place orders (including packages), manage my clients, produce invoices and the like. Does anyone have any good recommendations, preferably something inexpensive?

Thanks.

  Hi Tammy, I just bookmarked this site the other day. It may have what you're looking for. I didn't get into the site very far yet. Hope it helps. Jess

  I haven't used either of them but from reading the info about them they both look very powerful. Check into Microsoft Money 2007 Premium and Microsoft Money 2007 Home & Business.

  Hi Tammy!

You might want to check out Express digital darkroom Pro edition. If you can afford it, it will meet most of your needs and more. Ruben

  I have Quicken as well and the fact you can use it directly with your online bank account is quite handy... but for anything else photo-related it's kinda tricky.

I found one program called "PhotoByte" at http://www.zimberoff.com/photobyte.htm

It is available free (although the owner does ask for at least a little financial "donation" for his work).

I've been using it for about two weeks now and it really is incredible! It has pre-loaded forms/contracts for photography (15 to be exact, including invoices/estimates)

You can track jobs, equipment, checks, employee's... etc.

I highly recommend you give it a try before you fork out even more money. There are a TON of features designed specifically for professional photographers.

Good luck!
