Data/photo storage, report producing program?

Liquid HellzLiquid Hellz Registered User regular
Hey all, I am looking for a program that will allow me to input and save photos, addresses, names, dates and other various fields.. and then spit these back out in a custom PDF report. Database needs to be searchable. Bonus if it is useable from a webpage or accessible though the internet to update/create new reports. SUPER BONUS if it is cheap or FREE??? I want to create my own custom home inspection report. I have been using a custom built Access database for the last 5 years but want to move on to something better. (Access DB crashes at 2gigs worth of info, have to make a new one). I created the Access database adding the fields and making data types etc and then the reports but thats about where my coding/programming ability ends.

    Well, you could go with MS SQL Server Express. The current editions let you go up to 10GB in one database. And it's free. And it should transfer into from MS Access easily relative to most other products.
