I just want to remember these great resources I’ve encountered recently about the subject of DAM, iPhoto and Bridge.
This article offers a breakdown of some great solutions to finetune iPhoto. My biggest takeaways are iPhoto Diet and Keyword Manager. Unfortunately, iPhoto Diet looked like a great tool, but it also appears to be outdated as of iPhoto 09. Puh… I wonder if there are any similar programs out there that eliminate the numerous full versions of photos that iPhoto saves with each small rendition provides some excellent tutorials and articles on understanding metadata.
Photo MetaData has some great tutorials and articles on understanding metadata.
Dharma Blues gives an excellent synopsis of the reason why DAM is so important, as well as why it’s so troublesome. It’s amazing this topic isn’t being treated more seriously with greater standardization.
