The DAM Book 3.0
I’ve started work on The DAM Book 3.0, which will be a total rewrite of the 2009 Second Edition. I’m including new sections on Cloud Services, Project Management, Video for Photographers and more. The new version will not have workflow sections like the previous versions did – those are now being split off into The DAM Book Guides. Instead, The DAM Book will focus on helping you understand how the elements of a Photo Library can be understood as a total ecosystem.
The DAM Book 3.0 will be available in electronic form by July 1, 2014. A print version will be available several months later. In the meantime, here’s a bonus for anyone who purchases The DAM Book, Second Edition from us now: you will get a $15 credit toward the purchase of The DAM Book 3.0.
Forum for Educators
We’ve teamed up with Victoria Bampton to offer an educators-only forum to ask questions about Lightroom, Workflow and DAM. Fill in the form below and check the box for the Educator’s forum. And make sure to fill in details about your institution and your courses in the Private Introduction question on that page.
