June 16th — To be held at Big Bear Chamber of Commerce
Digital Asset Management (DAM)
How do I store and retrieve all the stuff on my computer and other connected devices. There are several elements to consider Home, office computer, phone, and tablet; any device where your stuff resides. How are all these devices connected, how they synchronize, and where do the originals live? Where are my backups? How can I prevent multiple copies, and eliminate the confusion? What about my devices? All Windows/Android? Some iOS? A little of both? DAM is not platform specific. You need a workflow plan and procedure to keep everything safe and organized. There are many ways to clear the clutter, with no absolute right and wrong, but in this workshop, we will propose a simple logic based protocol with some default rules to protect your data. A simple plan that once established, you could modify to fit your style.
