Authoritative and complete.,
This review is from: The DAM Book (Paperback)
I was facing a growing collection of photos including family snapshots and my amateur photography raw files and the processed Jpegs. I had been planning various mechanisms for backup and off-site storage and we were using a range of different organising tools from folders to tags using different standards. It was getting messy.
This book provided a great walk through of one approach from start to finish of managing your photos so that you can use them and find them and make sure they're safe. I've never found such a succinct guide on the Internet that provided the same level of coverage and confidence that you were getting all the facts. I've implemented many of the techniques described in the book and feel a lot more in control of my files now.
This is especially useful if you are a LightRoom user.
I have no hesitation recommending this book to digital photographers in the same position of a rapidly growing, important set of digital files that you need to organise and make safe.

The book preview says that it requires access to Photoshop "as a minimum". I don't use Photoshop but I do have Elements, Lightroom and DXO Optics Pro. And I can't really see why Photoshop should be an essential requirement for efficient DAM. From your knowledge of this book is the preview correct?
