Digital Asset Management

The DAM Book by Peter Krogh

Modern digital photography gives both dedicated amateurs and professionals the ability to take previously unheard-of numbers of photographs, which then become difficult to store and access. This guide offers ideas for archiving and cataloging pictures, protecting against accidental loss, migrating existing archives into a new DAM system, importing film images, adding copyright and contact information to image tags, and improving workflow. Also covered is the hardware needed to create a stable archive system that will evolve and grow. The book is illustrated throughout with hardware diagrams, screenshots, and color photographs. Captions under each photograph include the metadata tag keywords used in the database of the author, who is a veteran commercial and editorial photographer.
