16  General / Comments about the book / My Amazon Review on: January 31, 2006, 07:05:13 PM
I recently received an e-mail from Amazon.Com asking me to review The DAM Book. It appeared on Amazon almost immediately after I submitted it. Here it is:

             
Highly Recommended, January 29, 2006
Reviewer: William E. Rogers "Bill" (Johnstown, PA, USA) - See all my reviews
     
This book is absolutely terrific! This is the first really useful book that answers the question, "Now that I have thousands of digital photos in my computer, how can I keep track of them and make sure they will be available for future generations?"

Peter's writing is crystal clear, and the illustrations in the book are extremely helpful. In addition, Peter's website and DAM Forum provide help if you need it.

The concepts and techniques in this book are aimed at professional and advanced amateur photographers, and the book presumes that the reader has experience with digital cameras and advanced image processing software.

This book has been a tremendous help to me, and I highly recommend it.

Thanks so much, John. I'll try it after I get some sleep. Just looked at the clock, and it's a quarter to three. Now I'll be playing the great Johnny Mercer song in my head: "It's a quarter to three, there's no one in the place except you and me ... Make it one for my baby, and one more for the road."

I hope I'm wrong about this - I will appreciate any advice I receive.

Let's assume you have an image in a folder, and it is cataloged in iView. You want to add a new keyword.

If you add the keyword in iView, it is only saved in the iView catalog - it is not written into the metadata in the original image.

Similarly, if you add the keyword to the original image, for example by using Bridge, then update the catalog in iView the keyword does not show up in iView.

It appears that the only time that the keywords from the original file are written into iView is when the catalog is first created.

I ran some brief tests to confirm the above. I assume it must be true of other metadata as well, for instance "document title" or "description."

In conclusion, it seems that the only way to update the keywords in both the original file and the catalog is to enter them twice. Gee, I hope I'm wrong about this ...

Thanks to everyone for their responses. I understand now, and I feel a little bit less stupid ... I guess I'm not the only one who doesn't quite grasp why two terrific pieces of well-designed software have such a yawning gap between them. Why did Adobe use "urgency," a deprecated field, for the flags? Why didn't the designers of iView, realizing this, allow for it? Just another example of "things that make me go hmmmmmm."

Peter, I know you're busy with the seminars - I hope they are going well. Please add me to your e-mail list for notification of future seminars.
 
I love the book - it's wonderful. I bought a second copy as a gift to my son.
 
My problem is that I cannot make the colored labels from Bridge visible in iView. I'm using WinXP, Bridge, and an iView trial version, and Bridge has been updated to the newest version. The star ratings are visible in iView - in fact , everything works just the way you say it should, except for the labels.

It appears that this is one of the annotation fields with a mismatch. CS2 puts labels into the "urgency" field, which has been deprecated in the IPTC/XMP Core field list. I tried all three options under iView - edit>preferences>general>field names, but it doesn't seem to help.

I feel that I must be missing something very obvious - if so, I apologize - thanks for your help ...and THANK YOU for writing the book.
