Asset management, particularly the management of audio, video, and image content, tends to be the cornerstone of most of our large-scale projects.
While we've had nominal success with a variety of the image management tools for Drupal, every module tends to have weaknesses:
- image-only support
- duplicating work already in core
- poor architecture
- lack of organization or file-system-like structure
While the work we've begun on the am project will likely not be the final say in Drupal asset management, we would like to use it as a forum to discuss strengths and weaknesses of various asset/image management tools available for Drupal, and how we can better leverage Drupal to create a truly powerful, easy, and fast asset management module.
