This tool for cataloging your collection of art and antiques provides most necessary organizational features, though using it can be a tedious process. The interface is not only drab and cluttered, it's not very intuitive. For example, we couldn't initially figure out how to create a new database, so we had to visit the help files for advice. Once we figured out how to access the appropriate menu items, we wished for a step-by-step wizard to make the database design process a bit easier. Adding information such as artist, country of origin, style, keywords, value, and notes is much easier, as you simply browse the logically organized and convenient tabs. The software will let you add photos to visually represent each entry and offers a powerful search engine for quickly finding any entry in your database. Though clearly not geared toward average users, Art & Antique Organizer Deluxe can be useful to museum curators or those with large collections.
Art and Antique Organizer Deluxe is a Windows program for private and corporate collectors, small galleries, dealers, artists, publishers, appraisers, small museums, and clubs. The software helps you organize, catalog, and manage all art and antiques collections. The intuitive interface and ready-to-use solutions make the program easy to set up and use. For the power user, the program affords the simplicity of wizards to make it easy to set up organizers and use them.
