This workshop will introduce participants to Digital Asset Management and its concepts. It 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, it 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.

The Fall 2018 schedule will be posted soon. Please check back later for upcoming dates. For further information, please contact me.

Participants should bring a laptop computer with a plain text editor (NotePad, TextEdit) and a photo browser or editing suite (Adobe Bridge, Adobe Lightroom, ImageBrowser, View NX) installed. Demonstrations will use Adobe Bridge, which is available free-of-charge as a standalone program. However, participants can follow along using their own software. Please note that image editing is not part of the curriculum.

The necessary software should be installed prior to the workshop

Students may also want to have a memory card containing 10-12 images (copies, not originals), and a memory card reader (if required), so they can follow along with the practical exercises.
