I have been looking at the Omeka S sandbox as well as signed up for a trial of Classic, however I am still unsure of which would work best for my project.
I have been given a database table containing information about a large number of photos as well as links to the photos which are stored in a folder. The photos are organized into collections in the table based on a collection name field.
What we want to be able to do is to search, and also view the collections and images within each collection. When browsing or searching for an image, we would like to have thumbnails displayed with some of the info (only a few fields) from the table. Upon clicking on the thumbnail, we’d like to view a larger version of the image with all the corresponding information from the table.
I’m a little confused as to what version of Omeka would work best. Does anyone have any suggestions or examples that I can view of sites using Omeka that are doing what I am looking to do (or something similar)?
