Ah, I am starting to enjoy this Thursday visit to the dekeLounge. A half-hour with my good buddy Deke and an awesome special guest, and it’s like the weekend has already started. And what could be better than a guest who knows what to drink. Not only is Peter Krogh the preeminent expert in digital asset management (that’s the DAM acronym we have so much dam fun with, because we’re eleven-year-olds underneath our cosmopolitan veneers), but the man requested we have Bombay Sapphire martinis to lubricate our discussion of how to manage all those dam(n) photos.
Fresh off the publication of the second edition of his bestselling The DAM Book, Digital Asset Management for Photographers, here’s what Peter had to share over martinis:
Peter’s got great advice for where to get started in digital imaging wrangling, the benefits of cataloging software vs. browsers, and how you should be thinking about collecting sound and movie assets as well. Learn about Peter’s nuanced advice for rating images so that your rating system actually means something when you go to find your best stuff. We also learn about the untimely demise of Peter’s musical cocktail shaker.
Dam(n) intregued, and why wouldn’t you be? Here’s the regular-quality (192kbps) audio file. You can stream, or for best results, right-click and choose Download or Save.
For you rant-loving audiophiles out there, here’s the high-quality (320kbps) file. Definitely download this one (as opposed to streaming it).
