    DAM Feature

    Polygonius I have been chasing them up about a DAM since they launched their photo app. It is been in the pipeline for some time now. Lacking this feature has really impacted on the amount of photographers I know switching to Affinity Photos as they need a DAM to manage their images, so they stick with lightroom holding out for something better to come along. Affinity releasing a DAM will be a game changer in the Photography software industry. I'm guessing it will disrupts things for Adobe like Apple's Aperture did when they released that. Hopefully the team read the suggestions in these forums and get their DAM right when it finally comes
  2. Could you please add a DAM to Affinity Photo? Or at least develop a program similar to Lightroom or Aperture? If your looking for ideas please look at Apertures filing system. I have found it to be the most robust filing system as far as flexibility for storing images and sorting images. There are many neat features on it and I found it a lot more user friendly than Lightroom. It's editing capabilities are outdated, but it's DAM features are second to none. Sincerely JT
  3. When it comes to organizing images in a DAM app can you please have a look at how Apples aperture organized them. They had Project, Album and Smart Albums. Then you could organize any of those items into folders. Also they allow a broad ranging choice of how to store the images, from within aperture library, an external folder on the HD or on an external HD, the options were limitless as well as automatically backing up the original images to a separate folder/drive. With work I will have multiple projects running dealing with between 2000 and 10000 images, Apertures organizing system made it a piece of cake to organize and categorize the images quickly and effectively so when it came time to make a movie out of the photos I did not need to pour through thousands of images as they were already organized in a way I could pull up the ones I needed straight away. I found lightrooms organizing system cumbersome and I had to go back and for between different projects (libraries), I want to see all my projects on the same screen as I tend to go back and forth between them quickly to compare. Can you also add editing capabilities for the basic edits like lightroom and aperture have and then link the photos into the Photo app for more advanced edits. For me aperture is the best DAM I have used and it is what made lightroom what it is today, it's a shame Apple discontinued it, but if you guys took on some of the organizing features that would be fantastic.
