Collection Management Query

Is anyone using a database program they like for organizing and tracking a collection of visual images and showing them on the web across multiple platforms? Or can you refer me to someone with experience in this area who knows what software is worth looking at and which programs are best avoided? 

Many thanks for any assistance you can offer.
