Can’t find that photo you shot a few weeks or months ago? Does a client need that photo for a new project? Wish there was an easier way to get metadata on your photos?

Want to be able to monetize your photo shoots well after the original project is over?

As we shoot more and more digital images, categorizing, finding and storing those visual media files is ever so important.  Having a systematic, organized and retrievable structure in place saves you valuable time and money.

In this presentation you will hear from Digital Asset Management professionals, they will discuss key elements in devising a system that works for you.  Steps you can incorporate in your workflow that will help you sort, categorize and retrieve your valuable files.  Your images are valuable to you, this is an important discussion in learning how to preserve and find your files.   If you are just starting out or a seasoned pro, this meeting is for you.

 Part 1 – Digital Asset Management: Steps to Categorize and Retrieve your Files, will be discussed by ASPP member Henrik de Gyor.
