Digitat Asset Management


Recommended Posts

Just wondering what is happening to the development of Digital Asset management for Photo.  Have been waiting for ever for it as without it, photo becomes less and less attractive as far as workflow and photo retrieval is concerned.  As I have switched from canon to Fuji, LR is less an option so clearly need a change.  Anyone heard what is happening here?

No known info - time will tell. I have a feeling they are up to something. 

You know about Capture One Express for Fuji, right? It is the only RAW converter I really think can render the RAW files with the organic look I love from the SOOC pictures.

Thanks Jowday,  I had looked at Cap1 but as I also have canon gear I was led to believe it only works with Fiji files. Can you pls confirm?

Yep, the free Express edition only works with Fuji files (or Sony). I still recommend it for developing your Fuji RAW files though - it's awesome.

The professional edition will work with Canon files as well but it is fairly expensive.

I believe that the Fuji has a different pixel format and LR can’t handle it. How does Cap One go as a DAM. I am trying to get away from cloud base and use my own drives but I also work between iPad and Mac so would like some form of sync for workflow.

Lightroom/Photoshop/CameraRAW reads Fuji files but not everyone is pleased with the results. Not as great as the rendering in Capture One, no doubt, but much of the difference is for pixel peepers. Both programs also support Fuji camera colour profiles - classic chrome fx. Still, Capture One delivers the aesthetic rendering of the two.

You are thinking about DxO Photolab - it doesn't support Fuji XTRANS sensor data. But I also purchased it for other cameras. It is a great program with superior noise reduction.

Give Capture One Pro as shot if you want to evaluate the DAM - your are the best judge. I don't use it for that. I don't remember if the free Express version includes DAM.
