” Using Photo Mechanic To Boost Your Profits”
Join photographer John Harrington as he shows you how he’s uses Photo Mechanic when seconds count to get images out from assignments worldwide. Whether it’s traveling with the President, or in the middle of the Baltic Sea, Photo Mechanics’ tools mean fast access to the selection, editing, and transmission process. How does this translate into profits? Photo Mechanics’ e-mailing and direct transmission to client FTP destinations and services like PhotoShelter generate “transmission fees” as well as their templates for metadata and emailing mean lightning-fast delivery to serve fast-paced client demands. In addition, John’s use of Photo Mechanics’ browsing window onsite when doing executive portraits gives subjects fast and easy previews of their portraits moments after being taken.
David Riecks, founder of ControlledVocabulary.com
Thursday Oct 22nd 2:00 pm
Friday Oct 23rd 11:00 am
“Structured Keyword Catalog and the CVKC”
David will demonstrate how the Structured Keyword Catalog in Photo Mechanic uses a controlled vocabulary, which is a managed set of hierarchical terms for keywording images so that others can easily find the image they need when searching. Version 3.0 of the Controlled Vocabulary Keyword Catalog (or CVKC) contains approximately 11,000 keyword terms, including a broad range of people, lifestyle, and concept themes ˜ all organized in a hierarchical structure with segregated synonyms. Use of the CVKC insures consistency in selection and spelling of specific keyword terms and helps guide the keyworder to appropriate synonyms.
“How to use the Code Replacement Feature to Add a Set of Keywords to a Folder of Images”
David will demonstrate how the Code Replacement feature can take a spreadsheet containing filenames and keywords, to populate the keyword field as a batch process to a folder of images. This is important for any photographer or image collection manager (stock agency) that outsources their keywording, and needs to move that information back into the original image files (to feed into a DAM system, or to share with a distributor, or other collection).
