Optimize your Digital Workflow and Get More Time Snapping

By: Martin H. Brinn

Digital photographers can save themselves work in the digital darkroom when processing their photos simply by using the right software program for the job. A long days shooting has the potential of meaning hours of work more in the digital photography darkroom, our computer. Hundreds of pictures taken in the day mean hundreds of pictures that need to be imported into our computer, processed, cataloged and sorted to files.

RoboImport (http://www.roboimport.com) and PicaJet (http://www.picajet.com) automates this task for the digital photographer giving back to photos more time to enjoy the art we love most, capturing our world with the lens.

There are many things we could be doing on location that will save us time away from shooting, but most importantly there are things we should be doing that may even save us days of work that would be best spent photographing. The truth is that good organization and a smooth work flow is the key to optimizing time management.

Simply by using a professional powerful camera downloader like RoboImport at the end of a days' shooting, you will streamline your digital imaging workflow having the potential to save you hours. Roboimport may be configured to automatically detect your digital cameras connection, read and transfer files while you grab a cola. Certainly there is far more work involved in correctly processing digital pictures than getting them out of the camera and onto the computer. RoboImport will created the files and even rename your pictures according to your specifications. Further RoboImport will automatically rotate your photos and correct resolution where required. RoboImport even add XMP copyright and image subject information to the photographs during the transfer process.

Professional photographers do much more than take great photographs. The work volume involved in ensuring your pictures are adequately labeled and sorted is really not fair. Clients don't appreciate the work involved, and certainly the end price of our images rarely reflect efforts required. Professional photographers simply cannot skimp on quality to make time, the competition doesn't allow for second class work. The hours spent working is more like giving something for nothing, except that loving what we do, and being passionate about the photos we take is compensation for this.

The right software programs do give professional photographers the best of both worlds by picking up the desktop workflow giving us more time to spend taking photos.

More work can also be saved for the digital photographer by having an effective well cataloged picture database. PicaJet FX is the ideal software program for this task. PicaJet gives you control of the cataloging of your photos and allows for images to be stored in multiple categories making it fast and easy when searching your photos for the one you need. By taking advantage of OpenGL graphics acceleration the speed that PicaJet performs this task is incredible.

By saving you time automatically importing metadata information and existing folder names to create categories PicaJet removes the work for photographers from the expression workflow. Certainly the work is being seen to without the photographer actually having to do it. You might even come to think of PicaJet fondly as your free employee.

PicaJet might work fast, but there are those times when the work is fairly extensive, you might have a lot of photographs that need resizing or picture file types that need converting. PicaJet does this also, in batches. PicaJet has the ability of almost instantly processing hundreds of photos, a chore that would take perhaps days of work without.

Photographers have better things to do than working. The right digital picture cataloging software, image organizer and digital camera downloader will give you back your time for doing what you really want to be doing, taking great photos.
