    Assuming that the editor does non-destructive edits, then the editor has to create a preview for the DAM.  The DAM has to have some understanding of different versions of the edited file.  Both have to have a way to reconnect versions with masters.


    One of the things I like about aperture is that you can "Lift and Stamp" adjustments.  Apply the same set of adjustments to several images.  This works in an editor only if you have the capability to open multiple files at once.  Even when the adjustments aren't quite right for all images, it cuts the time in half, as it's usually only a few tweeks in the settings.

    Often my workflow is fairly simple:

    • Flag the images for the project.  Or use Light box.
    • Crop
    • Adjust histogram
    • Export

    I like being able to see postcard sized thumbnails of each image on the same screen to check that the overall tones are right.

    Be nice to be able to do this in the dam, rather than select -> export all to Luminar, then import back into the DAM

    I'll pass your comments to our devs. They will consider them while working on DAM tool.
