We are currently hosting thousands of images of different variants on our master Publication in SDL Tridion 2013. We are now planning to upgrade SDL with SDL Web 8.5 & have the following questions in our mind:
- Added benefits we can get if we use any Digital Asset Management (DAM)?
Today we have some metadata associated with the Image Schema like Alt tags etc, which brings a lot of problems in terms of maintenance as when you send an image for translation it localizes the Image Components too in child publications.
a. How can this be managed in a better way, should we include these metadata in the Component where we are going to include the images?
b. How do we include the image in the component if we are using DAM, will it be opening the DAM repository & the URL will get rendered within Content Delivery?
Any recommendation on DAM which can connect with Tridion will be helpful too.
Thanks in advance.
