Artists know they should keep track of their artworks. But who has the time? Flick. helps you document all of your creations and includes the ability to record a wide range of data, far beyond the basics of medium, dimensions and date. You can also keep details of clients, create mailing lists and produce an assortment of useful reports.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. IF you are an artist who would rather spend your time on your art and not fiddling with a software program this program is brilliant! Interface is simple/elegant and more intuitive than any other I have tried and it is pleanty powerful.
Many programs I tried left me wanting more. With this there was very little that I thought could be better, and get this!.... The suggestion I made for a change was gratefully accepted and I now see is included in the most recent update!
Give it a try, it is free and the more of us using it the better I am sure it will become.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. I didn't try the runtime version because I own FP7. The version I tested worked wonderfully. It is a nicely designed, quick and relatively intuitively designed filemaker db. It seemed to be really full-featured and covered all the categories that I, as an artist, would want in a db of my work. Two complaints. First, I wish I could have tried it more than 9 times. The limiting of a few features may be a good trade off if the authors were to make it a time-limited demo or at least giving it more tests, say 20 instead of 9. The second concerns the price. $50 US or $90 AU is a lot of money for most artists. Alas, despite what the world thinks, most artists do not make a living off their art, or if they do, it's a pretty meagre living, supplemented by teaching or other types of work. Art really doesn't pay unless one's talent is combined with a lot of luck and endless self-promotion. Anyway, that's a personal complaint. Most artists will hold onto their scraps of paper rather than pay that amount for a database, I think.
Overall, a nice a db, though.
