Image Management
Finding Images with Keywords

by George Schaub

As those who have accumulated thousands of digital images know, finding that one image you want in short notice without some strong image organization can be difficult, if not impossible. Going through stacks of CDs or DVDs, and using a host of image organization programs that you have accumulated throughout the years can be frustrating. In essence, making a stand and working with some frame of reference, regardless of the program or your own personal sense of organization, is the only way to get through the image jungle that eventually will grow in your files.

Perhaps one of the best ways to begin the process is to attach some sort of identification code to your images. The code should be drawn from a common glossary that you create before you start organizing your images, and one that you stick to throughout. Lacking this “grammar”, if you will, the task will be so much more difficult, and needlessly complicated.

Photokina’s New Look
by George Schaub

Professional and avid photographers looking to travel to Cologne, Germany will notice some changes when they prepare for their trip to photokina 2006, Sept. 26 – Oct. 1, 2006 in Cologne, Germany. Photokina veterans should quickly forget about the previous hall number system. As a result of an altered fairground all hall numbers have changed. Halls are no longer defined by consumer or professional interest. The newly renovated and renumbered fairground has now the shape of a shopping mall. Connected by one Main Corridor “Messeboulevard” navigation is now easier than in the past. Forgot to see someone in Hall 6? Don’t worry, cut through the main corridor and you will be there in no time. Traffic into the halls will be fed from four entrance points at the South, East, North and West of the fairground.

The New Pigment Ink Printers: How They Change Desktop Printing
by George Schaub

You wouldn’t think that a small thing like changing the type of ink a printer uses would have a profound effect on desktop photo printing, but that’s what the new products from Canon and HP might do. That change is offering pigment ink desktop printers. Epson has long been the leader in the photo/inkjet pigment printer field, starting out with the Epson 2000P, followed up by the 2200P and now their 2400 and 4800 models for the advanced amateur and pro. The new Canon and HP pigment ink printer models introduced at PMA now makes three manufacturers who have realized that pigment inks are what photo desktop printers want, and is one reason why I think that more and more photographers will be choosing pigment ink printers when making their prints at home or in the studio.

Raw file format is both an opportunity and, for some, a challenge. There's no doubt that it provides the most image information, but some still feel it is more trouble than it is worth. If you shoot with a Raw-capable camera, do you...
