I stored my digital photos in files organized by date and subject matter.

I am so looking forward to being able to find the photo easily and quickly from now on, and I am enjoying the process of learning some new programs as well.

It's a good book that I highly recommend if you are lost in the photographs that you have taken.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a abook I wish I had found sometime around 1998 when I got my first digital camera. Five cameras--with ever larger flash cards--later I find myself in a quagmire of differently tagged images, varying naming conventions, multiple external hard drives, and (literally) thousands and thousands of images. Finding the one I want runs the gamut from very difficult & time-consuming to absolutely impossible. I know it's there, I just can't locate it. Knowing that this is all my fault certainly doesn't help matters.

This book organizes your thinking process and presents you with enough options (with the pro's and con's of each) that you're able to determine what system is realistically most likely to work with your personality, your level of discipline, and your photographic workflow.

The author, fortunately, has a good understanding about what is involved. He is aware--and makes you aware--that some type of consistent structure has to be established early on (the sooner, the better) and maintained going forward because the purpose of Asset Management is not to store but to be able to retrieve.

He covers almost all aspects of the process from capture to backup and explains the various software programs that can help you (Mac or PC, camera manufacturer, etc). He explains concepts that weren't even on the horizon when I started (such as metadata, RAW files, online file sharing, social networks, etc.). He demonstrates with screen shots and examples and explains in clear and unintimidating language.

Consistency, as a matter of fact, should be the subtitle of the book. He suggests, explains, and weighs many different options but makes it clear that the choice of system is yours: pick one and stick with it forever after.

At first it was easy. I stored my digital photos in files organized by date and subject matter. Years have gone by and now I have thousands of photos in many files; Jpegs, Raw photos, Tiffs, edited, non-editied.. all the usual. Things are getting messy. What to do??
There is tons of available information on camera equipment, software and on how to take photos. There is very little information available with general ideas for organizing, saving and backing up digital photos.

I just finished going through "Thousands of Images, Now What?", by Mike Hagen and I found it to be a very well written resource on this topic. This is the first book I have found that has excellent examples of various ways to manage your photos no matter what specific software you may be using.

Whether you have thousand of images or are just starting out, I can highly recommend this book.

By the way if you use Nikon Capture NX2, Mike Hagen wrote a book called "After the Shoot" which I can also highly recommend.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Photographer Mike Hagen has taken a problem and confronted it well with his Thousands of Images, Now What: Painlessly Organize, Save, and Back Up Your Digital Photos. If you're a photographer his name may be familiar; for those who are unfamiliar with him, he is the Managing Director of the Nikonians Academy, and the driving force behind this highly successful organization that operates photo workshops and adventure trips all around the world. Mike is also the author of other photo books, and knows digital photography well.

You don't have to be a pro photographer to understand how perplexing and often frustrating exercise organizing digital images can be. All too often they are downloaded to the computer, only to get lost after a few are emailed, posted on Facebook, Flickr, Google or such online places. Yet this is not a new problem, as it's been going on since the early days of film photography, when photos were often put into shoeboxes to be sorted at a later date. And for many, things are not much different with digital photography.

With his new book, the author does a great job explaining Digital Asset Management (DAM), a method of efficiently organize, saving, and backing-up your digital photos into an intuitive filing system that will meet your needs, whether you use a Mac or a PC. The aim here is to generate a functional digital photo archive that will be easy to maintain and use. And without getting into a lot of technical jargon, author Hagen offers us a book that's easy to follow and understand.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Ask yourself these questions: Do I hate being unable to find specific images on my computer? Do I hate not knowing which version of an image file is the original? Am I willing to spend a bunch of time fixing the problem? Am I willing to pay at least $100 for new software? Am I a person who can develop new habits and rigorously maintain them?

If the answer to all of these questions is "Yes!" then buy this book. It will definitely help you.

Otherwise ...

Thousands of Images, Now What: Painlessly Organize, Save, and Back Up Your Digital Photos is a straightforward, clearly-written book with step-by-step instructions on how to manage the zillions of images you've taken with your digital camera and/scanned from film, slides, or prints. The book is well-organized, has ample illustrations, and a couple of helpful tables.

The central point of the book is that the only way to take control of your photos is to adopt a standard set of habits -- a WORKFLOW -- and follow them religiously. These habits include a particular way of uploading photos to your computer, renaming the files, adding keywords, and loading the photos into your image management software. Author Mike Hagen's not wrong about this; if you really want to be in charge of your photos -- be able to find what you want and keep track of what's what -- you must adopt a workflow.

And it's a PAIN! It requires some tedious work. If you're not truly SERIOUS -- if you're not prepared to do the work -- you probably won't benefit much from this book.

And that's too bad.
