Flick! is a database for artists and their artworks.

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.

Flick sure is comprehensive, but still limited to what fields the developer imagines is needed by the artist. How about some user-defined fields?

Graphic interface is quite stale or bland and not very useful, compared to the similarly priced Artist's Butler, which my wife has used for about 10 years.

Shows promise. Keep at it.

i just bought this application and am very happy with it. there are user defined fields. are you the developer of "artist's butler" (same name) giving only 2.5 stars to lower the rating of similar apps from other developers?

After a false start with a bad DMG, and then making a fool out of myself for not seeing the developer's email address at the bottom of his homepage, I got a good DMG to play with.

It has everything I could want (regarding data/features), or would at least include myself in an application. As I had mentioned I had started writing an application for my wife using python, sqlite and tk.

I would personally have mapped the data a little differently but the reporting makes up for how the data is organized.

Two gripes:

1. It is a bit slow and
2. The executable/application file itself is gigantic (over 70 MB). I am guessing this is because the application includes the entire FileMaker database engine?

Still, you got done what I've never completed. :) I'll run it by my wife and see if she is interested in using it.

To followup on my own mention of the size of the application, 28 MB is taken up by the FMP runtime engine, the rest is taken up by the FMP framework.

Not sure if there is any way to squeeze this or not.

I love you. I have been telling my wife I would write an application just like this for her for YEARS. I've started it on several occasions (mapping data and getting the basic database designed and object interface written) but always lost interest in it and never polished off the UI. I am going to download this immediately and give it a try... Her list of things she wanted were:

- ability to enter shows and mark paintings current locations
- sale prices with or w/o framing
- contact and interest lists
- media/topic/etc.

This looks like it will do all that...

You're right, at least on my machine the .dmg will not mount. It is beyond our control as the developer is the only person that can provide a proper .dmg download.
