Digital Asset Management for Photographers
Digital Asset Management is essentially the acts of looking after and finding your images. One needs to be aware that there is a LOT more to this than might meet the eye. Have a little think about how much the medium of photography has changed over the last 30 years. Do you really think that we will be taking pictures and storing them in the same way in 2050? Think of the Vinyl record, the Cassette Tape and the CD-Rom. Think of the floppy disk! Now think about your RAW, NEF or DNG. If you aren't concerned about their longevity you should be!
Asset management is what you do after you capture your pictures. How you store them, find them and enhance them.
Be careful where you put your images and what you call them. Being systematic will save you later!
Ingestion can save you time! Backing up can save your images.
Metadata and Keywords help you to find your images when you need them.
