The DAM Book: Digital Asset Management for Photographers

200510bc_dambookcov In the world of digital photography, digital asset management (DAM) refers to every part of the process that follows the taking of the picture, through final output and permanent storage.  Anyone who shoots, scans or stores digital photographs is practicing some form of DAM, but most of us are not doing so systematically or efficiently.  In The DAM Book, photographer Peter Krogh presents a solid plan and practical advice on how to file, find, protect and re-use photographs, focusing on best practices for digital photographers using Adobe Photoshop CS2.
