Even though it is fair to say that people can get a fairly good quality photo from the lower end digital cameras nowadays, one of the things that many tend to overlook or take for granted is the way that the asset managers software, which is bundled with the camera, deals with workflow. As people rely on digital cameras more and take a greater number of pictures, they will find that it is imperative to have a good digital asset management system, in addition to the camera.
Customarily, the low end digital cameras simply store as much data as possible on the data card in the camera and the files have some kind of numeric numbering scheme. The main problem is that the user has to constantly engage in “sneaker net,” which mean manually going back and forth between the digital camera and data card with its limited storage capacity and transferring the file to a . It doesn’t take long before the user can find themselves with a jumble of digital photos that are difficult to sort through and view. Good digital asset management software that provides a technology solution to this situation is one way of overcoming this challenge.
A digital asset management system for handling these types of files can be found for any kind of operating system, including Windows, Mac and Linux. Software asset management solutions are available for the individual or family that might have just a few hundred personal photos that need to be managed. Often, such software is included with the operating system, such as iPhoto on Apple computers.
