Overview

One of the main concerns for digital photographers today is asset management: how to file, find, protect, and re-use their photos. The best solutions can be found in The DAM Book, our bestselling guide to managing digital images efficiently and effectively.

Anyone who shoots, scans, or stores digital photographs is practicing digital asset management (DAM), but few people do it in a way that makes sense. In this second edition, photographer Peter Krogh -- the leading expert on DAM -- provides new tools and techniques to help professionals, amateurs, and students:

  • Understand the image file lifecycle: from shooting to editing, output, and permanent storage
  • Learn new ways to use metadata and key words to track photo files
  • Create a digital archive and name files clearly
  • Determine a strategy for backing up and validating image data
  • Learn a catalog workflow strategy, using Adobe Bridge, Camera Raw, Adobe Lightroom, Microsoft Expression Media, and Photoshop CS4 together
  • Migrate images from one file format to another, from one storage medium to another, and from film to digital
  • Learn how to copyright images

To identify and protect your images in the marketplace, having a solid asset management system is essential. The DAM Book offers the best approach.

Krogh brings clarity to the often overwhelming task of managing digital photographs, with a solid plan and practical advice for fellow photographers on how to file, find, protect, and re-use photographs.

    A Great Resource

    This book is not for the casual reader, nor is it inexpensive. However, it is worth every nickel if you are looking for detailed information on the topics included. I wanted to learn more about file naming and management and the information in chapter four answered my questions. Well-written, very detailed, with many examples of how to apply what you are learning. I also enjoyed the chapters on metadata, working files management, and workflow. This is a book you should read with a high-lighter and some sticky notes in a quiet room. It is a book you will find yourself referring to many times. Definately a good buy, and quite possibly the best DAM book in print on this subject.
