This workshop will introduce participants to Digital Asset Management and its concepts.
Digital Asset Management is a system used to organize, sort, and label images within our photo libraries. When implemented, it helps photographers to quickly locate either individual or groups of related photos within their libraries. This is achieved through a combination of logical folder structures and file names, as well as the metadata - such as captions and keywords - embedded within each image.
The workshop will discuss file naming and organization, using metadata to caption and tag images and, briefly, file backup strategies. It will demonstrate how a careful and standardized approach to keywords and keyword lists provides consistency across the library, ensuring that files can be quickly and accurately located when needed. Finally, the workshop will show how many of these steps can be automated, and performed in conjunction with other tasks, to increase efficiency and reduce the amount of time the photographer spends organizing and managing individual files or shoots.
