Ex microstock site Pixamba launched its media management platform. Aimed purely at image buyers it allows users to manage images (either microstock, macrostock sourced, or created in house). As it's not designed for photographers I only had a brief look at it, seems professional enough and has several features I can see being quite useful, if you are one of the sort of people who's idea of image asset management is downloading a photo, renaming it "agnecy_originalname" and throwing it on a share drive then this might be the application to help you keep track of images you have bought from multiple locations. You can of course use the platform to search and catalog images you have previously purchased and confirm the license terms you bought them under. Accounts start for as little at 4.99 monthly for 3GB of storage space.
