ASMP member, Peter Krogh, has completed the long-anticipated revision of The DAM Book. With his 3rd DAM book, Peter continues to help photographers build safe and usable private archives, and to show how to get the most out of your images. The creation and use of visual media is fast becoming a born-connected, online-first experience. Effective management of your images must include connection as an integral element – not an afterthought. Peter Krogh has rewritten The DAM Book 3.0 to help readers navigate this new reality.
Of course, the new connectedness does not mean that the era of keeping the private, self-hosted archive is over. Quite the contrary. It’s as important as ever to build a comprehensive library of your media stored on drives that are in your possession. If you care about preserving the media, this is an essential element of proper management. Peter continues to outline best practice for this, while showing how that private archive can integrate with connected tools.
