Phyllis and I have been experimenting with various forms of e-Publication. DAM: Be the Boss of Your Photos is our first straight-to-Kindle publication. As you probably know, there’s a Kindle reader for every device—you don’t have to just read this on the Kindle, you can read it on your computer or your iPad if you prefer to see it in color!
Digital Workflow: Using Digital Asset Management (DAM) to Become the Boss of Your Photos is the succinct story of the mechanics of what I do with my photos after I press the shutter: getting the photo files to my computer, filing the RAW source files, archiving work-in-progress, archiving final image files, finding files when there is a photo request, and making sure that my fragile digital archives are safe. This may not be sexy stuff, but it is important. My approach is straightforward, bearing in mind that I tend to prefer to figure things out for myself rather than letting software make my decisions.
We’ve priced DAM: Be the Boss of Your Photos as absolutely low as Amazon would let us, the download costs only $2.99. If you do read it, please let me know what you think.
