Photo: Digital Asset Management features?

Recommended Posts

I'm totally new to Affinity so I'm using this forum as a vehicle to learn more about the Photo app.  I scanned the Photo video topics, but couldn't immediately see anything about Digital Asset Management, such as is found in the Library module in Lightroom. DAM is just as important to me as image editing in the management of my - well, digital assets. Where do I find information about this capability?

 

I have watched a couple of the tutorial videos. My reaction is 'Ah, how delightful'. Here is somebody who knows how to speak clearly and at a measured pace, with intonation (BBC Radio 4-like) that is natural to me, without the usual, deeply irritating, YouTube vices of mumbling, gabbling, or general suffering from verbal incontinence while demonstrating a lack of basic vocabulary or grammar and using inappropriate colloquialisms which do not survive the translation from American; who doesn't wave the mouse pointer all over the screen, rapidly; who doesn't refer to me as a Dude (meaning unknown) or Guys (not the name shown on my birth certificate) but who generally seems to know how to convey understanding. What a refreshing difference to those excruciatingly embarrassing YouTube Photoshop and LIghtRoom videos (Pace, Tim Grey, yours are excellent). Keep them coming.

Hi LateJunction,

 

Affinity Photo doesn't have any DAM capabilities at the moment. However we do plan on creating DAM software in the future :) The person that records our tutorial videos comments on the Forums quite often I'm sure he'd love to read your feedback I'll pass it onto him :)

+1 +1 and +1 and especially, but not limited to, "wave the mouse pointer all over the screen, rapidly" = my really pet peeve! Well said, LateJunction!

Yes but a lot (most) of these YouTube vids are free and put together by people in their spare time. Irrespective of the quality of the presentation I have managed to pick up some exceptionally good tips. I applaud their efforts, practice will hopefully make perfect and I would not dream of knocking someone who is trying (and often succeeding) in helping others.

Hi LateJunction,

depending on what camera you have, capture one could be a good deal.

Capture One overs a limited license for Sony RAWs (+ jpegs, tiff) for free . With Version 9 you get a realy good DSM which plays well with APhoto. Capture One is like lightroom a complete RAW Converter, but you can also use it as a DRM only.
