Managing your image library - why attend this session?


As photographers, we are going out with our cameras for a reason. We enjoy taking photographs, and most people enjoy looking at them, and we especially enjoy looking at photographs from years past. The problem is that the act of taking photos does not lead to a rich photographic history that can be enjoyed by future generations. More time than it took to take the photograph needs to be spend seeing it will last and can be found. The photo tech companies and the camera companies have yet to provide an easy system, there is no leadership in this field. We have to find our own way.

Atkins has offered digital services since 1994, in 1996 we conceived and implemented a system that allows for rapid searching and recovery of digital files that still works today. This session will give you the tools to wrestle your own library into control.

Paul manages Atkins’ own archive of millions of images and constantly researches the latest techniques. He is also a consultant on the subject. He also manages his own personal collection of images from his life.

This session will cover:

  • stability of digital storage
