The dirty little secret of most DAMs is that they don’t do a very good job tagging your files. They expect you to tag your files with some other application, and then upload. In this 9 minute video, I outline some of the issues with this arrangement. I also outline specific capabilities that you should look for when choosing a DAM.
This presentation was created for the excellent UPAA Symposium that took place in Athens Georgia last week. If you work for a university creating photo or video content, I suggest you consider joining UPAA. It’s a highly supportive group, dealing with everything from creative techniques, to administration and management.
