DAM: Digital Asset Management

leave a comment »

Digital asset management (DAM) consists of management tasks and decisions surrounding the ingestion, annotation, cataloguing, storage, retrieval and distribution of digital assets. Digital photographs, animations, videos and music are samples of media asset management.

Metadata: EXIF, IPTC, XMP

Metadata is data about data. Metadata is a term for the descriptive information embedded inside an image or other type of file. Metadata is becoming increasingly important in this age of digital photos where users are looking for a way to store information with their pictures that is portable and stays with the file, both now and into the future.

The role of Adobe Bridge in all this

http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshoplightroom/faq/

Adobe Bridge is a file browser, which navigates folders on a local drive and displays the contents. Photographers, however, often need to reference files stored on removable media such as a DVD or remote hard drive. While Adobe Bridge is incapable of displaying these offline files, Lightroom takes an extended view beyond the local disk — it can work with offline files because it is catalog-driven. Importing photographs to Lightroom is the method by which new images are added to its catalog. Photographic files do not need to be moved or copied when they are imported — the Lightroom catalog keeps track of where the originals are located, whether they are on your local hard drive or not.
